Quote:"In meetings with industry representatives, the White House, and U.S. senators, senior FBI officials argue the dramatic shift in communication from the telephone system to the Internet has made it far more difficult for agents to wiretap Americans suspected of illegal activities, CNET has learned. The FBI general counsel's office has drafted a proposed law that the bureau claims is the best solution: requiring that social-networking Web sites and providers of VoIP, instant messaging, and Web e-mail alter their code to ensure their products are wiretap-friendly. ... The FBI's proposal would amend a 1994 law, called the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, or CALEA, that currently applies only to telecommunications providers, not Web companies. The Federal Communications Commission extended CALEA in 2004 to apply to broadband networks."

The only thing this will do is kill a dead economy even more. Everyone will simply move their server out of the US.
Economic casualties of the war on civil liberties first hit tourism, nobody wants to go there, why would you?
Now they will loose countless millions in tax revenue from companies that provide web hosting. hi5.gif Way to go!
Considering the internet is the last sector of the economy that WAS still growing, I think it's safe to say it's dead Jim.
Good call. Good wake up call.

It's by design it seems. coffeetime.gif

Quote:The USA has launched its first-ever marketing campaign to lure more foreign visitors from Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Prospective tourists are getting a taste of America's landscape, population and culture in a campaign to try and save its declining tourism industry.

While tourism has increased globally over the last decade, the U.S. slice of those travelers has fallen, due in large part to complicated visa procedures and heightened security that followed the Sept. 11 attacks.

The 10 years after the attacks are often referred to as the 'lost decade' for U.S. tourism, because new procedures drove millions of international travelers to other countries.

It's the first time that the U.S. has marketed itself as a tourist destination to people living in other countries.

From what I've read elsewhere there is already an inbuilt back door to the interwebs. It might not be accessible to the FBI. But you can better your bottom dollar, the NSA had one. They wouldn't be building a super data center in the desert for nothing.

This giant Orwellian surveillance system was built so agencies could "share information". Apparently that's another total clusterfuck fail.

Different centres of power do not share information how many different security and surveillance Derp partments are there 16 , 17? The Pentagon have just set up another one. Similar to what the Skull&Bones Boyz do at the CIA.

The NSA already has a giant communications monitoring building in Virginia. It looks like a giant, black, glass cube.


Resistance is futile...


Also, cell towers already have "back doors" in them. Cell providers/carriers share towers. Each carrier has it's own stack of equipment in every tower and the alphabets have their own stack hooked up also.

Politicians hide themselves away

Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
