What is wrong with Fusion Centers

A new ACLU report says that government "fusion centers" have not been planned in a public, open manner and that some are engaging in improper intelligence activities and endanger the privacy of citizens.

This report is intended to serve as a primer that explains what fusion centers are, and how and why they were created. It details potential problems fusion centers present to the privacy and civil liberties of ordinary Americans, including: Ambiguous Lines of Authority… Private Sector Participation… Military Participation… Data Mining… and Excessive Secrecy.
