RED ALERT: White House plans massive spidering operation of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. looking for detractors
Yesterday, The National Legal and Policy Center discovered an extremely troubling solicitation from the White House.
As if the administration’s media specialists aren’t in enough trouble — collecting “fishy” email information on citizens, for instance — a recent RFQ raises new and troubling questions.
NLPC has uncovered a plan by the White House New Media operation to hire a technology vendor to conduct a massive, secret effort to harvest personal information on millions of Americans from social networking websites… The targeted sites include Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr and others — any space where the White House “maintains a presence.”

Note that this is third troubling development related to White House new media operations. The first controversy erupted after the administration began collecting information on critics of the Obama health care transformation program. The second related to spam emails sent by David Axelrod, an Obama senior adviser.
Now the White House intends to harvest vast amounts of data on American citizens who use social networking sites. The scope of the program as described in the RFQ is shocking…
Go over to Doug’s blog to read about the lengths to which the Obama administration is willing to go to identify and monitor its enemies.
Alas, all those boneheads who voted for the Messiah — this is what they get…
