FBI asserts right to monitor cell phones without a warrant


The Obama administration has already let people know they have "no reasonable expectation of privacy" when they use their cell phones, so it shouldn't be surprising that the FBI claims it has the right to install fake cell phone towers and "use them to track cell phones' locations and users while intercepting the contents of calls and texts."

A couple of senators are making a show of pretending to be concerned, and have issued a press release that calls for "broader understanding of the full range of law enforcement agencies that use this technology, the policies in place to protect the privacy interests of those whose information might be collected using these devices, and the legal process that DOJ and DHS entities seek prior to using them."
