LXer: Using Paris Attacks as Excuse to Expand Domestic Spying

Published at LXer:

Itís no surprise that Fridayís Paris attacks are already being used to push for both more and continued surveillance here in the U.S. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler was on Capital Hill on Tuesday speaking before a House subcommittee, making the case for expanding the 1994 Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) which compelled telecom companies, Internet providers and some VoIP services to make their networks easier for law enforcement to access. Wheeler would like Congress to consider expanding the scope of the law to include devices such as gaming platforms, which now have capabilities that go beyond mere gaming.
