Tarek El-Ghazai, GW professor, and principal investigator of the High Performance Computing Laboratory, was recently interviewed by The Washington Post in the Dec. 21, 2013 story, "Americans uneasy about surveillance but often use snooping tools, Post poll finds."

A Washington Post poll has found Americans are uneasy with the extent of surveillance by the federal government’s vast apparatus for tracking the movements and communications of people worldwide, however Americans often use snooping tools in their own lives.

According to El-Ghazawi, "What worries you is sometimes you don't know what the scope of it or the scale of it is. But you know you are giving up part of your life."
