Obama Signs Warrantless Wire Tap Bill, Signed Behind Closed Doors,– Obama Renews Bush’s FISA Law

Shhh. don’t want people to know.

When Bush Did this it was big news. When Obama does it, on New Years Eve, nothing … Why the secrecy now, why no media attention.

The dog who did not bark.

The AP writes:

President Barack Obama has signed into law a five-year extension of the U.S. government’s authority to monitor the overseas activity of suspected foreign spies and terrorists.

The warrantless intercept program would have expired at the end of 2012 without the president’s approval. The renewal bill won final passage in the Senate on Friday.

Known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the law allows the government to monitor overseas phone calls and emails without obtaining a court order for each intercept.

The law does not apply to Americans. When Americans are targeted for surveillance, the government must get a warrant from a special 11-judge court of U.S. district judges appointed by the Supreme Court.

Hey if we think you can be a problem, we send over a drone to blow you up. Unless you are working for our government and then nothing …. shhhh!!!!

Just wait until Obama has his new NSA supper snoops onboard.
