The FBI Is Tapping My Phone (???)

On days like this it’s good to know I don’t live in the US (???):

A federal appeals court in Manhattan upheld the convictions on Monday of three Al Qaeda operatives in a ruling that bolsters the government’s power to investigate terrorism by holding that a key Constitutional protection afforded to Americans does not apply overseas.

The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit holds for the first time that government agents may obtain admissible evidence against United States citizens through warrantless searches abroad.

Now that the government may tap my calls without a warrant whilst I live up north I feel much better.

Take it away Public Enemy:
