Reading the news online this morning I saw this:
The State Department recently warned that no one attending the Olympics should expect privacy, noting that Russian law “permits the monitoring, retention and analysis of all data that traverses Russian communication networks, including Internet browsing, email messages, telephone calls and fax transmissions.”
Umm....haven't the US Courts ruled that our government can do the same thing? It's only at the whim of our leaders (from both parties) that we don't. Or do we???
Think about that, Comrade.
