CISPA permits police to do warrantless
A controversial data-sharing bill being debated today in the U.S. House of Representatives authorizes federal agencies to conduct warrantless
searches of information they obtain from e-mail and Internet providers. Rep. Alan Grayson, a Florida Democrat, proposed a one-sentence amendment
(PDF) that would have required the National Security Agency, the FBI, Homeland Security, and other agencies to secure a "warrant obtained in
accordance with the Fourth Amendment" before searching a database for evidence of criminal wrongdoing. Grayson complained this morning on Twitter
that House Republicans "wouldn't even allow debate on requiring a warrant before a search." That's a reference to a vote this week by the House
Rules committee that rejected a series of privacy-protective amendments, meaning they could not be proposed and debated during today's floor
privacy policies -- remained valid and legally enforceable in the future.
Obama has said he would veto CISPA but that remains to be seen. If the Republicans are all about Americans keeping their freedoms then why would they
want our right to privacy taken away?
AT&T, Comcast, EMC, IBM, Intel, McAfee, Oracle, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon these are the companies that want to help take your right to privacy
