FBI turns to broad new wiretap method

Apparently, when the FBI gets a warrant to intercept a suspect’s internet communication, they figure they don’t need to limit it to just that single individual. If they can’t get down to an individual’s IP address, they just set up shop on a broader part of an internet network and record all of the data that passes through. So maybe if your neighbor is a suspect, the FBI records all of your internet traffic as well. Or maybe someone in your neighborhood. Or city. No one seems to know how broad this goes. And all of this data is stored to be sorted later. Allegedly, the data from non-suspects is then deleted. Is it really? How long do they store it before deleting it? Again, no one knows.

Internet wiretapping, warrantless phone wiretapping, Guantanamo gulags, enemy combatants, torture… Seriously, when can we change our country’s name to “Soviet Union II”?
