A Government Definition of Privacy

WTF News of the day:

Donald Kerr, a top intelligence official with the US government, says that citizens need to change their definition of privacy to match the government’s definition, the AP reports.

And what is that definition, according to Kerr:

[P]rivacy, I would offer, is a system of laws, rules, and customs with an infrastructure of Inspectors General, oversight committees, and privacy boards on which our intelligence community commitment is based and measured.

Sigh. If Orwell or Kafka were alive…
