"Spending taxpayer dollars to create terrorism betting parlors is as wasteful as it is repugnant," the senators wrote in a letter to John Poindexter, head of the Information Awareness Office of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

John Poindexter, the Iran-Contra scandal figure who headed two criticized Pentagon projects, including one that would have enabled investors to profit by predicting terrorist attacks, will quit his post within weeks, U.S. defense officials said on Thursday.Poindexter, a retired U.S. Navy admiral, "expects to, within a few weeks, offer his resignation," a senior defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters.Disclosure of his planned departure from the Defense Department came just two days after Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld terminated a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, project supervised by Poindexter for a potential futures trading market in predictions of assassinations, terrorism and other events in the Middle East.
...
Poindexter earlier spearheaded a computerized surveillance project to collect information about potential terrorist threats by scouring private databases containing mountains of information about millions of people, drawing fire from privacy advocates.The official indicated that Poindexter had become a lightning rod for criticism, but did not answer directly when asked whether Rumsfeld forced his resignation.

Poindexter served as President Ronald Reagan's national security adviser in the 1980s.He became a central figure in the Iran-contra scandal in which Reagan administration officials diverted cash from secret sales of arms to Iran to bankroll Nicaraguan guerrillas at a time when such aid was forbidden by Congress.He was convicted of lying to Congress, but the conviction later was set aside....continued.....

Leading this initiative is John Poindexter, the former Reagan era National Security Adviser who famously said that it was his duty to withhold information from Congress.In his new post as Head of the Pentagon Office of Information Awareness, Poindexter has been quietly promoting the idea of creating "a virtual centralized database" that would have the "data-mining" power to pry into the most minute and intimate details of our private lives.
...
Now, at the Pentagon, in the Information Awareness Office, retired Navy Admiral John Poindexter is creating-with an initial $200 million of taxpayers' money-a Total Information Awareness system that, as the November 15 Washington Times reported, "would be authorized to collect every type of public and private data" on any of us to discern patterns of activities that might reveal links to terrorism.
...
As Jonathan Turley summarized the past history of this new grandmaster of privacy invasions, Poindexter, convicted of five felony counts of lying to Congress and destroying documents, was deeply involved in "the criminal conspiracy to sell arms to a terrorist nation, Iran, in order to surreptitiously fund an unlawful clandestine project in Nicaragua."
...
The president, to whom Donald Rumsfeld reports, had only this to say about the Defense Secretary's disgraced hire: "Admiral Poindexter has served the nation very well."

Feingold demands that Congress immediately cut off the funding for Poindexter's operation until a thorough review is conducted by the Senate and House of the Total Information Awareness system.

And possibly, as a trial run of this developing eye that never sleeps, Admiral Poindexter may click into whatever protesting messages we send to our representatives, and electronically file them.

A jury convicted Poindexter in 1990 on five felony counts of misleading Congress and making false statements, but an appeals court overturned the verdict because Congress had given him immunity for his testimony.He famously asserted, "The buck stops here," arguing that the White House staff, and not the president, was responsible for fateful decisions that might prove embarrassing.
This ring-knocking master of deceit is back again with a plan even more scandalous than Iran-contra.He heads the "Information Awareness Office" in the otherwise excellent Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which spawned the Internet and stealth aircraft technology.Poindexter is now realizing his 20-year dream: getting the "data-mining" power to snoop on every public and private act of every American.
...
But Poindexter, whose contempt for the restraints of oversight drew the Reagan administration into its most serious blunder, is still operating on the presumption that on such a sweeping theft of privacy rights, the buck ends with him and not with the president.
This time, however, he has been seizing power in the open.In the past week John Markoff of The Times, followed by Robert O'Harrow of The Washington Post, have revealed the extent of Poindexter's operation, but editorialists have not grasped its undermining of the Freedom of Information Act.
...
The Latin motto over Poindexter's new Pentagon office reads "Scientia Est Potentia" - "knowledge is power."Exactly: the government's infinite knowledge about you is its power over you."We're just as concerned as the next person with protecting privacy," this brilliant mind blandly assured The Post.A jury found he spoke falsely before.

In February 2001, John Poindexter was appointed to head the new Information Awareness Office (IAO), an offshoot of the Pentagon-based Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). After serving as Reagan's National Security Advisor, John Poindexter was charged and found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and the destruction of evidence as he played a central role in the Iran-Contra affair. Costa Rica has officially declared Poindexter to be a drug trafficker, and has barred him from entering the country.
Poindexter's new job at IAO will supply federal agents with "instant" analysis of private e-mail and telephone conversations. As the vice president of Syntek Technologies, Poindexter helped develop the Orwellian "Project Genoa" for the IAO.
