Define "surveillance"

I understand what they mean by "it's not a surveillance program", but it totally is a surveillance program -- they're claiming that it's not a "follow you around everywhere" type of surveillance program.

That said, I'm not inclined to believe what the DHS says just because they said it. Some sort of evidence or independent audit would be necessary for me to even begin to take them seriously on that.
