All these connections feed back into each other. The more you look at it, the more ChoicePoint, Seisient, Lexis, SAIC, Acxiom & "Global Info Group" all seem like the same basic entity. They all have overlapping data-mining technologies, & overlapping contracts through DHS. And they're really at this point all fronts for the federal gov. They'll do what the gov. isn't "allowed" to do. Sometimes it seems like the company was created especially for the contracts. (especially so for ChoicePoint & "Global Info.") The Bush Adm. can develop any survaillence tech. they want w/o worrying about the 4th Am., because it's done by a private party. There's no limit to what they can do.

This also seems to be to connect back to "usual suspects" of Halliburton & Bechtel - to whom we contracted out Iraq wars, and FEMA failures. They're just a Mafia. Common M.O. - take power, take what used to be done by gov. agencies, outsource it to a "usual suspect", skim some money off the top, & do a half-assed job. It's a government chop-shop. In this case, it's a two-fer because they get the money & the freedom to create what would be illegal programs.
