We'll have to wait and see if Jr. lets it through though. EDIT: LINK.......AFIED!!!!! (edited by MoeGates on 12.2.03 1301) Promote this thread!

They sure do. And even funnier was the FBI guy saying that this isn't a program that snoops into American's privacy. Sure it's not! Well, American "terrorists" maybe, but not REAL Americans! Don't they already read all our email through the CARNIVORE program?

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong. The whole privacy vs security issue is one with no easy answer. A huge chunk of money awaits someone who has a solution which can guarentee both. I'm somewhat pessimistic about this happening though ... if would appear the more you have of one the less you'll have of the other.

There's no need, really, for TIA. It's just way too extensive.

Trust me....we're closer than you think. I shudder to think how far it will go if the shit does hit the fan again.
