re: TSA Wants To Monitor Employee Computer Activities
TSA employees' computer activities being tracked should not be of any concern to anyone. The "quasi" enforcement organization will only be monitored as is most all government and private computer users' networks. U.S. Customs/DHS, BP, INS, DEA, FBI, and most other law enforcement agencies have for years provided recall features in their computer systems allowing internal affairs and other authorized officers to 'real time' monitor line activies and to review and replay officers' online activity. Plus, with little effort, analysis of online activity provides the means to target, monitor, predict and use as evidence, activities on computer systems that violate law and procedures. For an already questionable intrusion/misguided, overly expensive, deterrent system such as TSA ...to question the propriety of monitoring and using the information gleaned is ludicrous. Consider that users of any Internet link are already exposing themselves to continous surveillance, analysis, and predictive observation why should an organization who has been given the right to make the 4th Amendment the laughing stock of the world be any less exposed to scrutiny?

re: TSA Wants To Monitor Employee Computer Activities
I am a little surprised and disturbed the TSA isn't already doing this. There are a number of cases for doing this, not the least of which is preventing data leaks and policy violations that compromise security.
