Files show Utah had key role in MATRIX | Salt Lake Tribune
Files show Utah had key role in MATRIX

By Kirsten Stewart
The Salt Lake Tribune

Whether they know it or not, at least 33 states have released government and commercial records on residents to the controversial MATRIX antiterrorism network, reputed to be a pilot project involving just 13 states.

And more than a willing partner, Utah was a driving force behind the project.

These and other revelations about MATRIX and Utah's pivotal role are disclosed in Public Safety Department documents obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune under the state Government Records Access Management Act.

New details about MATRIX have government watchdogs and lawmakers suspecting a cover-up by the executive branch. Some have called upon Gov. Olene Walker to demand the return of Utah's information, which is known to include law enforcement files such as prison data, driver licenses and criminal histories but could extend to credit records, phone numbers and home addresses of law-abiding residents.

1. They ought to run Bush through the damn Matrix...
and find out why he was at 'PULL'.

It is truly hard to tell what these clowns have been up to! It will take Democrats twenty years to undo the damage they have done to civil liberties.

I'm glad to see Jeb's name come up...put him in prison before he can run for president. HAHAHAH!!!
