Why is the Obama administration seeking a device to "monitor social media sites"?

Is nothing sacred anymore. The story says they want to "gather intelligence" and '"monitor key words" used. What's up with that?

Update:

Sorry avatar "Supa-Turd"-It IS on Drudge-and the first time i posted it i had the link-the system thought it was spam. So you'll have to take one of your hands off your "package" and look it up.Hope this helps.

    All a computer does is look up stuff on the internet. Perhaps they are looking for a security system for offensive words (profanity and such) and anyone who is spreading false lies on the internet. It is seeking a device, called a network security system, which will be monitored by robots or the fbi or the army or the police to catch any offensive profanity. The next thing before you know it, they'll be patrolling everything on the internet.

    The us intelligence community have been monitoring mass communications for decades.. only thing that's changed is the laws so now it's legal. And you can now "disappear" for something you post.. or for any reason at all.

    Because they have the money to manipulate the search engines. If I was a rich liberal immoral communistic fool who had an uphill climb to stay in the Presidents seat I would do the same. Mitt Romney 2012!!!

    Obama sees us as his little serfs and gets really thin skinned and upset when we don't bow down to him.

  • Because Democrats see you as their property
