We’ll get rid of the logo…but we won’t give up our decoder rings…
I guess the idea that convicted felon John Poindexter is heading up the Bush administration’s domestic snooping service was creepy enough. Now it looks like they got rid of the all-seeing eye logo.
Best known for his starring turn in the Iran Contra Affair, Poindexter is now the man in charge of the Information Awareness Officeâ€”a data-mining/snooping project the Pentagon is developing via The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Perhaps youâ€™ve noticed their delightfully creepy logo staring at you from this page.
The logo, in fact, must have been a bit too creepy. Itâ€™s no longer visible on the official IAO website
Not that this means that they will do less snooping. Thye just won’t wear the screened t-shirts and carry the tote bags with the logo on it anymore.
I feel better already.
