Bush Allowed to Continue to Spy on Americans While Case on Appeal

5 October 2006 at 6:42:40 AM

A Judge a couple of weeks ago ruled against Bush's spying on Americans, but, because the Bush administration is appealling the case, is allowing Bush to continue to spy on Americans in the meantime. Ultimately, let's hope that other courts up the chain agree with this judge that Bush must obey the constitution and GET A WARRANT FIRST before he spies on any more Americans.

U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit ruled Aug. 17 that the program was unconstitutional because it violates the rights to free speech and privacy and the separation of powers in the Constitution.

Along the same lines, EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has filed a lawsuit against the Bush administration because of the Department of Justice's failure to respond in a timely manner with information about what was the Carnivore program and now is possibly the DCS-3000 and Red Hook programs. Why's this important and what does it have to do with Bush spying on Americans without warrants? Because one has to understand that the information about people is collected BEFORE any wiretap trap is put into place, thus before the government would even ATTEMPT to get a warrant to spy on YOU.

DCS-3000 is an interception system that the EFF said apparently evolved out of Carnivore, a system later renamed DCS-1000. The FBI developed Carnivore to read e-mails and other online communications among suspected criminals, terrorists and spies, but privacy groups and lawmakers complained it could collect much more than allowed by a warrant.

A Justice Department Inspector General report in March said the FBI had spent about $10 million on DCS-3000 to intercept communications over emerging digital technologies used by wireless carriers before next year's federal deadline for them to deploy their own wiretap capabilities.

The same report said the FBI spent more than $1.5 million to develop Red Hook, “a system to collect voice and data calls and then process and display the intercepted information” before those wiretap capabilities are in place.

This is called a "fishing expedition"-gathering up all this info and then looking to see IF a warrant might be necessary... ie, without probable cause. VIOLATES THE 4th AMENDMENT OF OUR CONSTITUTION.
