As can be seen from the above letter, the TROLL Cam article was approved to be published exactly one month to the day before an incipient TROLL Cam system was formally proposed. The article, first submited for publication to a now defunct magazine in 2000, was also submitted to TNA and 2600 Quarterly after it was re-written in light of new evidence that came to my attention. The article was also distributed prior to that time, in the early days of July, to friends and family--on July 4th or thereabouts; several of them responded, e.g., an uncle who sent me a letter dated July 8th in reply.

"A government committee, which was appointed by Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta to revamp airport security, received a briefing Thursday from the inventor of a leading facial recognition system, who said equipment could be installed and operating within a few weeks. Joseph Atick, president of Visionics Corp. of Jersey City, N.J., described to the committee how his FaceIt system could be linked to cameras at security checkpoints and transmit information about suspected terrorists to government officials via the Internet, creating what he called a 'nationwide shield.'" Reagan National May Get Scanning Device, Robert O'Harrow Jr. Washington Post Staff Writer Monday, Sep. 24, 2001; Page A14

In a corporate news release by Visionics on the same day, 24 of the same day, it stated that the TROLL Cam system should be implemented by the federal government & be able to track suspects world-wide:

" Intelligence agencies around the world should be able to build databases of terrorists' faces and indentities. These can be used to track them through computerized facial recognition as they travel from country to country." --Visionics Corporation, "Protecting Civilization from the Faces of Terror: Primer on the Role of Facial Recognition Technology Can Play in Enhancing Ariport Security, Sep 24, 2001"

" Therefore, airport security is a matter that needs to be driven by the federal government, and powered by our intelgence community." -- Visionics Corporation, "Protecting Civiliaizaiton from the Faces of Terror", Sep 24, 2001

"Does the Brotherhood exist?" "That Winston, you will never know. If we choose to set you free when we have finished with you, and if you live to be ninety years old, still you will never learn whether the answer to that question is yes or no. As long as you live, it will be a riddle in your mind."
-- 1984 by George Orwell

"With the development of television, and the technical advance which made it possible to recieve and transmit simultaneously on the same instrument, private life came to an end. Every citizen, or at least every citizen worth watching, could be kept for twenty-four hours a day under the eyes of the police and the sound of official propaganda." George Orwell, 1984, 1948
