    •  They're claiming a "general warrant" is enough (0+ / 0-)

      Read the FISA "court order".  It claims to be a warrant to collect everyone's data, no specificity.

      They're claiming that that's enough.

      This is of course an explicit Fourth Amendment violation -- as NonnyO mentions above -- and everyone involved in this unconstitutional spying belongs in prison, or possibly executed for treason.  But they're doing it anyway.
