Is it OK to listen in on private conversations between a lawyer and a defendant on trial for a serious crime? What about sifting through the communications of an entire country, or even continent, in pursuit of a wanted criminal or terrorist?
Ask any spy agency about their practices of collecting millions (and probably even billions) of phone calls, cell phone data, e-mails and other communications data from the population, and you’ll be probably get the same basic answer:
– ‘We are not spying on Americans.’
– ‘We collect metadata; we don’t do mass surveillance.’
