Abstract

The Multi-State Antiterrorism Information Exchange (MATRIX) was a state-level, data-collection program funded by the federal government after Congress eliminated funding for a similar program employed by the Pentagon. This Article examined the development of the MATRIX program, analyzed its effect on an individual's "right to be let alone," and, more broadly, attempted to answer the following question: How much control over the individual should the government assume in the name of national defense?
