CFP-206 / DNA Data Banks

What are the privacy issues around DNA testing and genetic data banks? What is the FBI's interest and why are FBI critics alarmed about the bureau's move to create a national DNA database? Might insurance companies or employers screen out people with genetic indicators to possible future ailments such as diabetes, despite their actual state of health and capabilities? Is there such a thing as "truly confidential" data, or is data, once collected, inevitably destined to be misused?
