    because as long as it has the data it can search it

    the gathering is without subpoenas targeting the individuals whose location information is being gathered.  That is clear from the articl.e

      Technically, I "can" just go out and start killing people. That's why we have laws.

      I'm still waiting to learn how you know the NSA is collecting "all of it," with "it" being the kind of domestic phone location data specifically mentioned by stellaluna as having been used in her client's trial.

        The link in the diary is broken, but that's no excuse -- it's easy enough to manually enter washingtonpost.com, and the story is right at the top of the main page.

        On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.

        We have laws against criminally shooting people. Sure, people can go around criminally shooting people, but we have laws against it, so everything is perfectly OK. Capability is a big yawn.
