What James? Are you too threatening my life? I find the term you used "kill" to be a direct threat upon me.
Non the less, you must stand in line.
I know this is hard, but I will help you all through it with documentation and written statements proving absolutely everything I have stated is true, and much more that has not been brought forth yet.

The Total Information Awareness (TIA) program will develop and integrate information technologies into a prototype system to detect, classify, and identify potential foreign terrorists so that we may have a better understanding of their plans, thereby increasing the probability that the U.S. can preempt adverse actions.
The TIA program will integrate technologies developed by DARPA (and elsewhere, as appropriate) into a series of increasingly powerful prototype systems that can be stress-tested in operationally relevant environments using real-time feedback to refine concepts of operation and performance requirements down to the component level. The ultimate goal is to create a counter-terrorism information system that: (i) increases the information coverage by an order-of-magnitude and can be easily scaled; (ii) provides focused warnings within an hour after a triggering event occurs or an evidence threshold is passed; (iii) can automatically cue analysts based on partial pattern matches and has patterns that cover 90 percent of all known previous foreign terrorist attacks; and (iv) supports collaboration, analytical reasoning, and information sharing so that analysts can hypothesize, test, and propose theories and mitigating strategies about possible futures so that decision-makers can effectively evaluate the impact of current or future policies.

I find it strange that the web archive site you link to has only 5 pages linked from darpa.mil for the last 11-12 years, and all 5 are the exact same text/image you linked to...
I'm still not convinced. Why only those 5 pages?

There is no such thing as the Information Awareness Program.
The DARPA Information Awareness Office (IAO) is the focal point for DARPA’s effort to develop and demonstrate information technologies and components, and prototype closed-loop information systems. These information systems will counter asymmetric threats by achieving total information awareness useful for preemption, national-security warning, and national-security decision-making.
These offices focus on new knowledge and component technologies that might have significant national security applications. The system offices are the Tactical Technology Office, Special Projects Office, Advanced Technology Office, Information Exploitation Office, and Information Awareness Office.
