Submission + - Senate Renews Warrentless Eavesdropping Act (wired.com)

electron sponge writes: On Friday morning, the Senate renewed the FISA Amendments Act, which allows for warrentless electronic eavesdropping, for an additional five years. The act, which was originally passed by Congress in 2008, allows law enforcement agencies to access private communications as long as one participant in the communications could reasonably be believed to be outside the United States. This law has been the subject of a federal lawsuit, and was argued before the Supreme Court recently.
