Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants

If anyone ever doubted the political power of the American law enforcement community, they only need to take a look at an initiative in the senate to add privacy to the communications of emails and other electronic communications between private individuals.

‘….Proposed law scheduled for a vote next week originally increased Americans’ e-mail privacy. Then law enforcement complained. Now it increases government access to e-mail and other digital files….’

Now take a look at the details ‘…..Leahy’s rewritten bill would allow more than 22 agencies — including the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Communications Commission — to access Americans’ e-mail, Google Docs files, Facebook wall posts, and Twitter direct messages without a search warrant. It also would give the FBI and Homeland Security more authority, in some circumstances, to gain full access to Internet accounts without notifying either the owner or a judge….’

1984…you have arrived.
