nsalistens-sCnet reports –

It may well be that the NSA is recording every breath you take, every move you make. But it’s going to take them quite some time to review whether your breaths and moves are, in some way, significant or even troubling.

Gitmo Plans 1st. Visiting Day

According to The WashingtonPost –

The Pentagon is considering allowing the families of detainees at Guantanamo Bay to visit them, an unprecedented step to ease the isolation of inmates who in some cases have been held at the U.S. facility for close to a decade, according to congressional aides. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which monitors conditions at the military prison in Cuba and facilitates videoconferences between detainees and their families, has been in serious discussions with the Pentagon about a visitation program, the aides said.
