Submission + - Newly Declassified FBI Docs Reveal Predictive Data (wired.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Newly declassified documents show that the FBI is developing a data-mining system to uncover terror sleeper cells. Among the 1.6 billion records in the National Security Analysis Center — tens of thousands of travel records, including hotel and airline records. Other revelations in the documents uncovered by a Wired.com FOIA request show that the feds want to expand the system for use in cyber-crime investigations, and it's already been used to scrutinize helicopter pilots and Philly cab drivers. The system has eerie resemblances to DARPA's once-banned Total Information Awareness program.

There is a very clear and significant difference between claiming to be a Jedi and claiming to be a christian. Christianity was founded on the basis of a "true" document and it has withstood more than 2000 years of scrutiny. Jedi-ism(?) has only been around for about 30 years and is based on what is clearly a work of fiction. Jedi-ism is analogous to scientology.
