FBI/CIA have too many 'terrorists' to watch

Some good news folks. With the ever expanding list of potentially terroristic acts, there are now just too many suspects. With all the googolplex (one, followed by writing zeroes until you get tired) of Zettabytes of stored information the authorities have on us all, it eventually becomes completely useless.

If a person could spend a half hour each day just inputting useless irrelevant information into the system they could set themselves free. Maybe Facebook and Twitter could be fun. One could set up an off the Wall, (no pun intended) crazy, arbitrary, creative, and humorous page that had absolutely nothing to do with personal information.

Here is an article from The Daily Mail claiming the FBI and CIA have just too many 'terrorists' to monitor.

The article begins with the Russian warnings.

The name of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was listed on the U.S. government's highly classified central database of people it views as potential terrorists.

But the list is so vast that authorities did not automatically keep close tabs on him, sources close to the bombing investigation said on Tuesday.

And then below states that,

But the database, which holds more than half a million names, is only a repository of information on people who U.S. authorities see as known, suspected or potential terrorists from around the world.

That's kinda funny

With too much irrelevant data to sort through ("Oh my, yet another person who pays for their coffee with cash AND has more than a week's worth of food in their pantry!"), they can't tell true threats from non-threats.

It's funny, but at the same time rather sad. This clearly demonstrates that all of this privacy- destroying is making everyone less safe, and not just less safe from the government.
