Who will police the privacy police?

A newly-released report by the Government Accountability Office finds that, as I’ve been complaining, the DHS has failed to give the public the notices required by the Privacy Act as to what information the government is keeping about U.S. citizens and residents, and how that information is being used. Without such notice, keeping these records is a crime. But who is responsible for enforcing the Privacy Act, when the people responsible for the missing or deficient notices are the “Privacy Officers”?

Details from the Identity Project.

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
