No article to reference, just want to know what my fellow ATS-ers are thinking.
All of this non-stop hype has to be about something other than a "warrant".
Especially considering the fact that all of our electronic communications are being recorded and monitored WITHOUT warrants.
This was revealed by Snowden and other whistle blowers: secret/illegal warrant-less spying on the American people by our public servants.
Warrant-less spying has also been one of the primary criticisms of the unPatriot Act.
Libertarians and others have said from the beginning, we're not opposed to investigating potential bad guys but there has to be oversight. The
government has to go to a court and justify why they want to spy on that specific individual ie probable cause.
And this has been government's complaint: they dont want oversight. They want to operate in secrecy and illegally...
So whats all this REALLY about when the government already monitors and records everything WITHOUT a warrant...
And why now?
