I read this in the paper this morning. The article is a summary of a summary
of a briefing, and contains contradictory statements, ranging from the
tracking of end-users web browsing (bad) to a clearing house to gather
real-time information of attacks in progress (which sounds like a good
idea to me).

I'm reserving judgement until there are some actual facts.
