From a theoretical standpoint, why would any fairly well informed IT pro think this is terribly difficult? Particularly given the computing horsepower cheaply and readily available to churn through the data.

"Like most NSA surveillance programs, you probably have nothing to worry about unless you're conspiring with terrorists or planning some kind of criminal activity."

Sure...until politics gets involved and politcal enemies are relabeled as terrorists. This is one cookie jar politicians won't be able to keep their hands out of.

Yeah right... go read The Authoritarians by Bob Altemeyer. Politics attracts a certain kind of individual. That certain kind of individual surrounds himself with certain kinds of yes men.

Tyrants rising up and abusing government power is the norm.

Ok so the NSA doesn't know how to use reverse lookup?

What if they trace a number you called to another and that to another... and finally to a number of interest. Uh Oh now you are on the list.

The dystopian fantasies of yesteryear are now a reality. We’ve allowed the coming of an age where the civil liberties our forefathers fought so hard for are being eroded by the day. Freedom of Press, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly are mere ghostly images of their original intent. We’ve woken up to an Orwellian Society of Fear where anyone is at the mercy of being labeled a terrorist for standing up for rights we took for granted just over a decade ago. Read about how we’re waging war against ourselves at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
