U.S. gives big, secret push to Internet surveillance

Senior Obama administration officials have secretly authorized the interception of communications carried on portions of networks operated by AT&T and other Internet service providers, a practice that might otherwise be illegal under federal wiretapping laws.

The secret legal authorization from the Justice Department originally applied to a cybersecurity pilot project in which the military monitored defense contractors' Internet links. Since then, however, the program has been expanded by President Obama to cover all critical infrastructure sectors including energy, healthcare, and finance starting June 12.

Ok, I confess, I was being a tad sarcastic on the Bush comment. Will agree that it started under the previous administration and the current POTUS is just expanding it. However, one might notice that we had don't ask don't tell under Bush, no funding going to overseas for abortions, and "gay marriage" was illegal. So, the president does not always follow the actions of his predecessor.

Just out of curiosity, how does that which is illegal become legal without a change in the law itself? I might suggest it is still illegal until Congress changes the law, not the exec branch secretly skirting it. But that would be the constitutional thing to do, and these antinomians care little about such matters.

but am sure it is all due to republican corruption under "baby face Bush" and the current administration is blameless

Good.

Maybe some of their operators will be converted by eavesdropping on conversations and testimonies from some of our more faithful brothers and sisters online.
