FBI May Have Datamined Grocery Stores With Help From Credit Companies

azuroff Standard (442 comments)

All these posts, and I haven't seen anyone point out this tiny little detail, including the OP -

The brainchild of top FBI counterterrorism officials Phil Mudd and Willie T. Hulon, according to well-informed sources, the project didn't last long. It was torpedoed by the head of the FBI's criminal investigations division, Michael A. Mason, who argued that putting somebody on a terrorist list for what they ate was ridiculous -- and possibly illegal.

Much more fun to just bash the government than actually find out the facts, eh?
