U.S. Gov't Spent $30M On Citizens' Personal Info

SurgeonGeneral Re:Yahoo! News is as news as slashdot (181 comments)

Haha you are right, I shouldn't have made the World War 2 reference, though since its not actually a reference to Hitler I didnt actually break the rule!! =)

I agree with you that organizations do have a degree of responsibility for the behavior of their members, however I think this news peice was a little different because it almost deceptively left out the fact that this was something perpetrated by individuals, not "the government". Its presenting the actions of an individual as if they were the actions of the entire organization, without even acknowledging the role of the individual. Thats what I find reprehensible.
