Just a note that the National Academies Press has released its report (well, at 376 pages, it's really a book) Protecting Individual Privacy in the Struggle Against Terrorists: A Framework for Program Assessment, which is free to read online. You may have seen a news article on it somewhere or another. It's theory-relevant since Cynthia Dwork was on the committee that wrote it -- I'm guessing she played a very significant role in Appendix H: Data Mining and Information Fusion and/or Appendix L: The Science and Technology of Privacy Protection in particular. It's now on my to-read stack.
