Tracked in America

The ACLU and a bunch of other organizations have put together this online documentary of sorts - minus the video - of the history of U.S. government surveillance of its citizens and others. It seems pretty decent. Some audio clips. Lots of downloadable stuff, including mp3's and transcripts and lesson plans.

Because it's the ACLU and pushing for broad, mainstream acceptance, the site doesn't get too controversial, it seems. So expect to see how the U.S. government tracked folks, but don't expect to see the other activities the government participated in that went hand-in-hand with that tracking - the harassment, the terrorizing, and murder.

Get involved.
