    Default Do you mind if the govt reads your email?

    NOW, an in-depth news show on PBS, examines the issue of email interception by the US government. The show implies that most email in the United States is now read by the US government. The government is permitted to read foreign emails or emails from foreign sources, but is not supposed to read domestic email.



    This week, NOW reports on new evidence suggesting the existence of a secret government program that intercepts millions of private e-mails each day in the name of terrorist surveillance. News about the alleged program came to light when a former AT&T employee, Mark Klein, blew the whistle on what he believes to be a large-scale installation of secret Internet monitoring equipment deep inside AT&T's San Francisco office. The equipment, he contends, was created at the request of the U.S. government to spy on e-mail traffic across the entire Internet. Though the government and AT&T refuse to address the issue directly, Klein backs up his charges with internal company documents and personal photos.

    Glistening fangs and gleaming claws,
    Teeth that pierce and jaws like saws,
    Its blood red eyes that pierce the moon,
    My fate is awaiting it will be here soon.

    I don't agree with this. Everyone has the right to their own individual privacy without the invasion of the government. I don't even consider it a safety precaution. When checking people at airports for dangerous materials, yes, that's fine. But checking people's emails? Jeez...

    The next thing they'll do is install cameras in all of our houses to watch us all.

    That's not the point. This is a breach of our natural rights.



    Against, completely. This country is quickly becoming totalitarian. And ignorant people don't stand up to it.

    I believe it's just part of their way of turning us more into a Big Brother state.

    I don't really want anyone to read my personal e-mails but if it stops my country from being invaded even by 5% I'm thinking it's not a bad idea.

    They should not be allowed to read e-mails. You may not think you have anything to hide, but would you be ok with every e-mail you ever sent being front page of the NY Times? Even if you have nothing to hide it still invades privacy. But when they say all e-mails are read it's not like an individual reads them, they look for key words and phrases.
