While it is creepy, the first ammendment, while allowing for free speech, does not state that people/governments can't listen in, can't monitor.
Now what people/governments DO after listening is subject to interpretation and should be monitored by the people.
(Did you gov guys get that? )
The Information Awareness Office (IAO) was established by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in January 2002 to bring together several DARPA projects focused on applying surveillance and information technology to track and monitor terrorists and other asymmetric threats to national security, by achieving Total Information Awareness (TIA).
Also if someone is stupid enough to put personal details on these sites then again they deserve to be monitored and have information collected about them.
Your right the "right to privacy" doesn't exist in the constitution. Looks like it's time for an amendment.

Basically by bush and obama doing all this they are letting the terrorist win think about it. Bush said they hate us for our freedom. If this was really true why take freedoms away? They are using the people killed in 911 as a way to take away our privacy and freedoms.
