A huge national computer network, known as Echelon? When some of you dismiss concerns about warrant-less wiretapping and 4th amendment violations, do you really understand what is going on? This is not a team of NSA agents tapping SPECIFIC phone lines. This is a computer system that monitors billions of random calls, and records them when certain ‘trigger words’ are used. Chances are that most of us have had our conversations recorded.
How, when and under what circumstances our conversations are actually reviewed by gov’t agents, nobody knows. They no longer need to obtain a warrant to listen to your private calls, so there is no judicial oversight protecting your 4th amendment rights.
