Unbelievable.

A former exec of Internet advertising giant DoubleClick will be the Department of Homeland Security’s first privacy czar, Bush administration officials said.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with DoubleClick, it is one of the primary internet advertisers. They have tried everything from simple banner clicks to secret programs that install on your computer to track consumer information to sell. In other words, they are/were the primary abusers of electronic privacy. But who knows, maybe she will be good at the job, since she is aware of the bad practices.
