Once again, the UK Daily Mail does the reporting our own papers used to do (I guess there was probably some new scoop to be had on J-Lo or something).

While some are simply university sites that are helping test the technology for the military, others are run by the FBI and state and city police departments–clearly designed to watch American citizens.
