FBI Wants to Tap Your Social Networks – Obama on Verge of Agreeing

From the New York Times:

The F.B.I. director, Robert S. Mueller III, has argued that the bureau’s ability to carry out court-approved eavesdropping on suspects is “going dark” as communications technology evolves, and since 2010 has pushed for a legal mandate requiring companies like Facebook and Google to build into their instant-messaging and other such systems a capacity to comply with wiretap orders.

    Sounds like the Fearful Bureau of Investigation to me. Too bad crime is down; they could and have remedied that by enticement arrests. Too bad FBI agents can’t act for shit while mocking “crime”.

    Such fearful tactics in order the “Bureau” doesn’t get caught as terrorists as social groups have figured it out already. Social Groups Terrorized by FBI.

    Can you imagine if the entire global community went dark? No phone use, no internet, nothing, everyone just stopped chatting. These buggers at the helm of all of these global intelligence agencies would be lost. How about the Creator changing all the languages on us again? Ha, wouldn’t that be a hoot? That would just make my day.

    Does anyone honestly believe this stuff is not already monitored?


    This gov’t destroyed the 4th amendment long ago, they do not believe warrants are necessary for anything they take an interest in. My gawd, if you didn’t realize that in Boston, I am not sure what evidence is needed

      Yep, they had this internet system all worked out before they fired it off. No more wondering whats in all of those envelopes at the post offices. They know what everyone buys on line, reads on line, they know how everyone thinks. I went on line to rub it in their faces that all of their sick pecking order secrets aren’t so secret. My advice to them is they’d better read Revelations again, and again, until they get it. The side they’re on loses HARD.
