    •  Is it actually a warrant if it isn't served upon (0+ / 0-)

      the subject?  Well, I don't think so.  This program requires NOTICE to the individual being spied upon, and the law should so ensure....with perhaps a delay of a couple of weeks to allow for the national security etc etc.  But, we must be served and the data grabbed released to us, with personal penalties to the grabbers (jail, fines) if it doesn't happen.  That should provide something of a deterrent.
