"Facial recognition software, which American military and intelligence
agencies used for years in Iraq and Afghanistan to identify potential
terrorists, is being eagerly adopted by dozens of police departments
around the country to pursue drug dealers, prostitutes and other
conventional criminal suspects. But because it is being used with few
guidelines and with little oversight or public disclosure, it is raising
questions of privacy and concerns about potential misuse."
