    FBI's Carnivore-lies may have blown bin Laden inquiry

    By Thomas C. Greene, The Register May 29 2002 5:10AM

    Fundamental design flaws in the FBI's infamous Carnivore packet sniffer have led to the destruction of evidence related to a suspect possibly involved in Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda network which had been obtained legally under a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant, the watchdog group EPIC has learned.

    The FBI has long denied that Carnivore is an indiscriminate tool which vacuums up the personal correspondence of innocent persons not targeted for surveillance. But an internal memo obtained by EPIC under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) shows that it does in fact gather the communications of innocent third parties illegally. It appears the FBI has been lying about Carnivore all along, and covering up its deficiencies even to the Justice Department.

    well what a surprise. I guess next you'll tell us the CIA uses drug money to fund rebels in communist countries?

    Pete, I am surprised, disgusted and ashamed of you.  I expected better from someone like you.  How dare you go around spreading such truths?

    It gets even better! Great spin control results in more money, more agents, less emphasis on white-collar and drug crime and more for where the future is - spying on US  citizens: FBI and CIA coming on-line with new powers http://www.theregus.com/content/6/25093.html

    It gets worse, Pete.  Your dossier was accidentally released onto the Net during the early hours of tomorrow, where, under Subsection IV, Paragraph 8.3, you have been under surveillance for either 'being nice to people' or 'being suspiciously honest.'

    You'd better commit a felony real soon or they'll lock you up.

    The litany just keeps going on and getting louder and bolder - all this stuff just required a signature - no judicial over-sight whatsoever.

    [shudder]

    I would consider it an honour and privelege to puke on the graves of their bestial forebears.  How easy it is to imprison the innocent masses for the surety of imprisoning the guilty few.
