FBI Is Pushing For Warrantless Access To Your Browsing History

Alright, this crap is seriously getting out of hand. The FBI can get pretty much anything it wants as it is, now they want warrantless access to your browsing history?

The Obama administration is pushing to amend existing privacy law in a way that critics argue would allow the government access to internet browsing histories and other metadata -- without needing a warrant. An amendment to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), set to be considered by the Judiciary Committee on Thursday, will allow the FBI to subpoena records associated with Americans' online communications -- so called electronic communications transactional records -- with the use of national security letters, which don't require court approval.
