Warrantless e-mail surveillance bill abandoned due to Massive Criticism
"Sen. Patrick Leahy has abandoned his controversial proposal that would grant government agencies more surveillance power — including warrantless access to Americans’ e-mail accounts — than they possess under current law.

The Vermont Democrat said today on Twitter that he would “not support such an exception” for warrantless access. The remarks came a few hours after a CNET article was published this morning that disclosed the existence of the measure.

A vote on the proposal in the Senate Judiciary committee, which Leahy chairs, is scheduled for next Thursday. The amendments were due to be glued onto a substitute (PDF) to H.R. 2471, which the House of Representatives already has approved.

Leahy’s about-face comes in response to a deluge of criticism today, including the American Civil Liberties Union saying that warrants should be required, and the conservative group FreedomWorks launching a petition to Congress — with more than 2,300 messages sent so far — titled: “Tell Congress: Stay Out of My Email!”"

That's funny! Maybe they will abandon the ever growing number of face recognition cameras or stop monitoring keywords in texts and forum posts.

 Quoting: danwa


This happened because he was "briefed" by the see-eye-ey etc.. about how they have been doing global full spectrum Warrantless electronic wiretapping / monitoring for well over a decade!

I wouldn't be surprised to see a false flag cyber attack very soon followed by an even worse wiretapping bill which will pass it with a majority vote lol.

It will probably be an industrial disaster of some sort, one that affects lots of people and gets tons of media coverage.
