Oh yeah..this will do it..from RawStory:
National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell is drawing up plans for cyberspace spying that would make the current debate on warrantless wiretaps look like a “walk in the park,” according to an interview published in the New Yorker’s print edition today. Read the PDF here.
Debate on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act “will be a walk in the park compared to this,” McConnell said. “this is going to be a goat rope on the Hill. My prediction is that we’re going to screw around with this until something horrendous happens.”
Read all our emails? As if they haven’t done that already.
McConnell is developing a Cyber-Security Policy, still in the draft stage, which will closely police Internet activity.
“Ed Giorgio, who is working with McConnell on the plan, said that would mean giving the government the autority to examine the content of any e-mail, file transfer or Web search,” author Lawrence Wright pens.
“Google has records that could help in a cyber-investigation, he said,” Wright adds. “Giorgio warned me, ‘We have a saying in this business: ‘Privacy and security are a zero-sum game.'”
I am speechless, seriously and utterly speechless. Congress better step up to the plate on this bullshit. The infrastructure to tap into Americans’ email and web search history may already be in place.-May be? Fuck it IS in place boys and girls, its called Room 641A. AT&T has the capabilities NOW, just ask Mark Klein.
