#1 Udall has a point. It's hard to see the national security relevance of knowing who and what Spitz communicated as he travels/traveled through Berlin.

Unrelated to Spitz, but Social Network Analysis permits the identification and monitoring of terrorist cell leaders, cell memberships, and facilitators. For example; if you are in constant contact with a known real estate agent [property sales facilitator], it could be assessed that you may be planning to buy or sell a home or property. If your network of recent contacts includes a known bomb maker, which just happens to coincide with your recent large bank withdrawal, and a string of deadly bomb attacks......well, you can take it from there.

#2 Ref the above comment, check out this somewhat dated link, story, and graphic [Palantir Investigation].

If this Palantir investigation were an actual. live application, one could klik on each of the "entitites" [small faces] and a complete ontology would appear. I used Palantir because it came with this story. There are many other analytic tools which provide similar capabilities.

#3 Social Network Analysis permits the identification and monitoring of [Democrat|Republican party] leaders, [party] memberships, and [contributors].

How does that make you feel?
