NSA Wiretaps and Security

Greg at The Talent Show brings up a good point when he asks, "Remember When Telphone Records Were Private?"

Why is it that we can create a secret NSA database to track the phone calls made by every American and collate that information to the point that we can find patterns in who calls whom and determine from that whether or not a person is talking to a terrorist, but we can't create a database to determine if a guy applying for a job is using a SSN that belongs to a dead person?

Just wondering.
