> WaPo: â€œPentagon Creating Student Databaseâ€œ
> NYTimes: â€œAge 16 to 25? The Pentagon Has Your Number, and Moreâ€œ
From the NYTimes story:
The Defense Department and a private contractor have
been building an extensive database of 30 million 16-to-25-year-olds,
combining names with Social Security numbers, grade-point averages,
e-mail addresses and phone numbers.
The department began building the database three years ago, but
military officials filed a notice announcing plans for it only last
month. That is apparently a violation of the federal Privacy Act, which
requires that government agencies accept public comment before new
records systems are created.
