DOJ Pressures Supremes to Drop Warrantless Challenge
As Government Proposes Privacy Bill of Rights
Wired notes that the Department of Justice is urging the Supreme Court to halt a legal challenge to the government's warrantless wiretap efforts. At the center of those efforts are the phone companies, who whistleblowers have alleged are shoveling all phone and data traffic from numerous companies right into the lap of the NSA -- and the FISA Amendments Act, which gave those companies immunity from criminal penalties for violating privacy law. The Supreme Court is being asked to review the Bush administration's warrantless domestic surveillance program that has subsequently been expanded by the Obama administration. That this is occurring while the White House professes a dedication to online privacy is more than a little amusing.
I think Not.
