“If you look it up online, there are many news stories on what can be learned from cell phone metadata. Take for example what the NSA is doing in collecting all sorts of data and then extracting patterns about personal behavior. If known bad guy X regularly calls person Y who in turn is in touch with Mr. Z, who is frequently in locations know to be politically hostile, this gives you one line of connections – if you add information about how person Y receives funds traceable to Mr. Z’s unsavory location, then there’s another layer of connections."
