Here's a stick

Anybody in favor of reducing the legal restrictions on domestic SIGINT for purposes of the GWOT?

I think he may be talking about monitoring Cell Phone traffic. I know in my former life ...we were not allowed to listen to the cell phone frequencies. I think normally you have to have a warrant to listen to cell phone stuff. The restrictions are only in effect in CONUS as far as I remember. I am still knocking the ole SIGINT and ELINT cobwebs out.

Yes I am in favor of it.

This is borderline Opsec information. Please remember that this is a Public Forum.

Good point. Perhaps this thread should be closed.

I don't think that this thread should remain open at all, unless the discussion goes to general Global War on Terror vice domestic....issues.

Interesting discussion, but as long as OPSEC and TTP's aren't discussed, I think it is good to go.

Cell phone conversations: Tap 'em all you want if you have a warrant.

Computer Traffic: Do you have a search warrant? If so, giddyup. As I understand search warrants they have to be pretty specific. Perhaps an LEO can enlighten me there if I'm wrong.

NO!!! This isn't the Soviet Union. Most totalitarian governments started under the guise of "Protecting the People"!!

Good point and a question;

How do we know when enough is enough? How would we know if we've crossed the line?

Do you have a reasonable expectation of privacy when using government controlled radio and cell phone frequencies or the internet?

I dont think so. I just assume somebody is reading the mail and listening. If its not the government it will be the bad guys or some hacker.

If internet and cell phone traffic were opened up, how much would the government be able to monitor? The amount of traffic generated by those two methods is staggering so the process would have to be automated. Failing that, to tap a line you'd need specific reasons for doing so and you'd have to place an agent on those freqs.

I think opening those methods up would overwhelm a probably very busy group of intel services. As TS put it, though, how much is enough? What is the line?

I feel the same. Anyone who thinks that they have privacy on the internet or on their cell phone is kidding themselves.
