http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57552225-38/senate-bill-re...A Senate proposal touted as protecting Americans' e-mail privacy has been quietly rewritten, giving government agencies more surveillance power than they possess under current law.CNET has learned that Patrick Leahy, the influential Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee, has dramatically reshaped his legislation in response to law enforcement concerns. A vote on his bill, which now authorizes warrantless access to Americans' e-mail, is scheduled for next week.I can only imagine the furor amongst libruls if Dubya administration had proposed such a law.
Oops! I see fleg has already started a thread on this subject.
