    The Bush administration will evidently defend just about anything in the name of the "War on Terror".

    Well, as long as they're checking my bank records, I hope they make a nice deposit. :laugh:

    Seriously, I fail to see why this is such big news. I always thought the financial institutions always gave info about all of us to the IRS anyway. And if you make a deposit of $10,000 or more, there is a special form to fill out and it is automatically reported to the IRS. Suspicious conspiracy theorist that I am, I just always assumed anything the IRS knew would automatically be forwarded to the CIA, FBI, or whoever else wanted to know it in this age of Big Brother. IOW, I am not shocked at this big headline in the NY Times.

    This is one of the tools that was used to catch Aldrich Ames (the spy) back in the nineties.

    Why is it suddenly evil?
