    Suspect one of the outcomes of 9/11… brought back to the table because of the Boston bombings…

    The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is able read your emails, Facebook chats, Twitter messages and other private documents without the need for a search warrant, according to its own guidance.

    The bureau insists this policy does not breach the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which protects citizens from “unreasonable searches and seizures.” Others aren’t so sure.

    Government documents reviewed by CNET’s Declan McCullagh show that prosecutors and investigators at the U.S. Department of Justice believe they do not need a court-ordered search warrant to access sensitive and private citizen data. Instead, a subpoena signed by a federal prosecutor can be enough to obtain nearly “all records from an ISP.”
