Funds for chat-room surveillance???

"The U.S. Intelligence Community funds ways to spy on chat rooms".

National Science Foundation (NSF) approves
$157,673 from its Approaches to Combat Terrorism program to come up with ways to monitor chat-rooms for possible terrorist activities.

Paranoia strikes again... I guess, there are better ways to spend money.

But, numerous such small grants and numerous other large grants have drained the money out of the pool for sensible research.
