    Actually while working on my paralegal degree I just studied about the issue of sneak and peek.  They are required to tell you that they had the warrant on you. Just they aren't required to tell you anything else about it.  You can ask but you won't get an answer.  And yes the warrant is so they can sneak a peek in the case that they might lose the evidence in a case.  It's supposed to help protect situations like that (key word is supposed).

    With warrants you're supposed to have a probable cause and yes saying the word "terrorism" definitely makes it easier to get what you want. Who wants to be the one to not stop the next bombing or shoot out or what have you?
