http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article3186.htm U.S. data mining riles Latin America: Nicaragua ""It's espionage," said Alejandro Bendana, director of the Institute of International Studies in Managua. "The U.S. is going to know more about the Nicaraguan people than the Nicaraguan government. They can say, 'Here is a list of Nicaraguan undesirables. Keep them under control,' or they will say to the airlines, 'Don't let them onboard.'"" ""It was a big surprise, because this information cannot be in the hands of a private company," said Maria del Carmen Solorzano, the Nicaraguan prosecutor investigating the information collecting. "They could use this information for all kinds of different ends, even those we can't imagine."" http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article4973.htm
