Privacy Concerns

J. Francis Lehman has posted a disturbing article. It seems that making a large payment on a credit card bill can get the attention of Homeland Security.
They didn't call a suspected terrorist on their cell phone. They didn't try to sneak a machine gun through customs.

They just paid a hefty chunk of their credit card balance. And they learned how frighteningly wide the net of suspicion has been cast.
