Spying on the CIA and AG

CNN News reports that the Foundation for Taxpayer & Consumer Rights group spent just $26.00 and obtained two social security numbers.

Not a big deal, except that the SSNs belonged to CIA Director George Tenet and United States Attorney General John Ashcroft. Even the government watchdogs aren't safe from privacy theft.

In response to these types of attacks on personal privacy, about a week ago, Governor Gray Davis signed a new privacy act into law, retroactively effective on July 1, 2003. If you want some government guidance on how to protect your privacy, California has an Office of Privacy Protection. Maybe Tenet and Ashcroft haven't checked that link out yet.
