Interesting fact: the law that allowed the NSA to increase its surveillance operations in the name of fighting terrorism is officially called the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001.
The shortened form is U.S.A.P.A.T.R.I.O.T.
