The Wall Street Journal is reporting:
“The Justice Department is scooping up data from thousands of mobile phones through devices deployed on airplanes that mimic cell phone towers, a high-tech hunt for criminal suspects that is snagging a large number of innocent Americans, according to people familiar with the operations … The program is the latest example of the extent to which the U.S. is training its surveillance lens inside the U.S. It is similar in approach to the National Security Agency’s program to collect millions of Americans phone records, in that it scoops up large volumes of data in order to find a single person or a handful of people.”
When will it ever end? Seemingly each week we learn of new governmental spying program. To what end?
Other than drug sellers and buyers, who have they actually caught by spying on all of us?
