Washington, D.C. (AP) - U.S. officials say the Pentagon is taking new
steps to beef up security and surveillance programs at its bases,
and will join an FBI intelligence-sharing program aimed at
pinpointing future terror attacks.
The new moves come nearly a year after a shooting rampage at
Fort Hood, Texas.
The steps include a partnership with the FBI's eGuardian
program, which will replace the Pentagon's controversial
anti-terror database that collected reports of suspicious activity
near military installations. The now-defunct program, called TALON,
was closed after revelations that it had improperly stored
information on peace activists.
