    I’m flummoxed that Martellaro thinks that the NSA secretly scanning all emails is OK, especially without notification of the users of the service. Open ended allowances/agreements are bad and *should* violate the 4th Amendment:

    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
