There's no place like home.

It's time to pack up and come home.

Homeland Security to Covertly Scan Behavior

It is not just security cameras we will be contending with- a new kind of social control will be here soon. Is this really the type of society in which you want to live?

"Scientists and engineers have been asked to devise ways of analyzing people's behavior and physiology from afar, in the hope they may reveal clues about their mental state and even their future intentions, reports the London Guardian.

A program named Project Hostile Intent (PHI) is aiming by 2010 to develop technology that can scan the bodily functions of citizens without them knowing and uncover any possible hostile intent or deception.

The technology will be covertly placed in public and will operate just like CCTV, with DHS officials able to remotely access it and apply its use to anyone in the area.

The Guardian reports that the DHS has revealed to New Scientist that technology to be used for PHI includes lasers, cameras, eye trackers, microphones and heart rate and breathing sensors. The DHS has also stated that it wishes to develop a lie detector-type test that can be used remotely which is described as an advantage because it would not interfere with the flow of a crowd and it could be used without the target's knowledge.

The report also states that the Project represents an enhancement of technology already in use to scan faces in crowds.

It is not beyond reason to expect this technology to be implemented without debate. Can anyone remember a real meaningful debate occurring concerning surveillance cameras before four million of them went up in London?

With the Bush administration's new ability to implement any surveillance programs it now wishes without oversight, and rabid neocon lapdogs calling for the heads of anyone who questions them, a Pandora's box has been opened that threatens to turn America into a big brother panopticon state."

Everyday America looses more freedom.Do you really think those cameras wont be used against you at some point??.. Crime? Muggers will just wear more covering and cameras cant go into every doorway. What next? electronic tattoos and implants..

ever here of 1984?

Rabbi you seem to be forgetting that, it won't be rabbanim behind those cameras but crooked goy politicians and cops.
You might feel secure in America but hasn't history taught us that even the biggest and most 'civilized' nations turned and became murderers and oppressors...especially towards the jewish people. Do we really need that kind of Ayin roah upon us?
