85. Total Information Awareness involves capture and storage, and use later too.
One rationale for capturing and storing all communications of interest is that you do not know what you will want to discover later. Therefore, you need to capture everything now and store it.

In the national defense context, if you discover a cell of enemy combatants in the USA, you need to go back and find out who they phoned, what web sites they accessed, etc., for as long back in time as possible. This is possible only if everything is captured and stored.

Now, the problem is, Can we trust Republicans doing voter caging and other felonious activities to steal elections with all that info? Not when they fire USAs for political purposes. Placing political operatives into USA positions indicates we MUST distrust them..
