FBI Wants Instant Access to Search Histories

Recommended Posts

Bad news.

Just like you demanded, we brought all of these Moslems into your base to live on welfare. But there’s just one problem: they all want to murder you.

So we have to spy on you all so you don’t get murdered.

The FBI hopes to amend surveillance laws as early as this year, giving the agency explicit authority to access a personal Internet browser history by simply issuing an administrative “national security letter,” the Washington Post reports.

The new legislation being readied would empower the FBI to obtain “electronic communication transactional records” bypassing judges’ approval with the help of a “national security letter” (NSL) which could be issued by the special agent in charge of a bureau field office, the paper says.

The personal web ‘transactional records’ in question will allegedly include protocol addresses and the exact time a person spends on a web resource, but not content like search queries and email texts.
