Just so we’re clear:
The New York Times reported this morning that the federal government wants to “make it easier to wiretap the Internet”:
Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations for the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is “going dark” as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone.
According to the AP, later this afternoon: “Significant cheating by FBI agents on exam”:
A Justice Department investigation has found that FBI agents, including several supervisors, cheated on an important test covering the bureau’s policies for conducting surveillance on Americans.
Got that? Good.
Oh hey! By the way, on Friday: “FBI cites terror link in raid of local activists”
