And they wonder why I don’t trust them

The last few days have had a lot of press about the FBI breaking the law to obtain Americans phone records. They did this thousands of times (2200 of the 4400 requests) by using fake emergency letters. The FBI was even able to obtain the phone records by using a Post-it note. You can read the full DOJ report here. (pdf) I would be more outraged by this if I hadn’t assumed it was happening already. Big brother knows more than you would like to think He does about your communications, even if he gets that information illegally.
