All Phone calls in USA recorded by US government.
Great 🙁 NOT … We need to stop giving up our rights for so called safety. In my humble opinion we could give up all our rights and still be hit by terrorist. Take a look at Russia and the rights their citizens have compared to us. Then take a look at the attacks that still happen.
We need to repeal the Patriot act and move our agency’s into doing the work that they did back in the 60’s and early 70’s. There is not substitute for good old fashion investigators. Yes the people that we replaced with technology. We need them back and working for us.

A former FBI counterterrorism agent has hinted at a vast and intrusive surveillance network used by the U.S. government to monitor its own citizens.
Tim Clemente admitted as much when he appeared on CNN Wednesday night.
Discussing the Boston Marathon attack and past telephone conversations of Katherine Russell and her now deceased husband, suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Clemente said that those conversations would be available to investigators.
BURNETT: ‘ Tim, is there any way, obviously, there is a voice mail they can try to get the phone companies to give that up at this point. It’s not a voice mail. It’s just a conversation. There’s no way they actually can find out what happened, right, unless she tells them?’
CLEMENTE: ‘No, there is a way. We certainly have ways in national security investigations to find out exactly what was said in that conversation. It’s not necessarily something that the FBI is going to want to present in court, but it may help lead the investigation and/or lead to questioning of her. We certainly can find that out.’
BURNETT: ‘So they can actually get that? People are saying, look, that is incredible.’
CLEMENTE: ‘No, welcome to America. All of that stuff is being captured as we speak whether we know it or like it or not.’
