"FBI wants to watch you type"
Advertisements [?]
"The FBI is trying to convince the government to mandate that providers of broadband, Internet telephony, and instant-messaging services build in backdoors for easy wiretapping."

"That would constitute a sweeping expansion of police surveillance powers. Instead of asking Congress to approve the request, the FBI (along with the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration) are pressing the Federal Communications Commission to move forward with minimal public input."

One step closer to becoming the United States of Amerika. It's a good thing we have all those soldiers fighting and dying in Iraq to protect our freedom! :eyes: :mad:
