FBi Laptop Camera Snooping and Orwell’s 1984: Side by Side ComparisonBy Juan Cole Dec. 7, 2013 Jon Schwartz ( @tinyrevolution ) posted this to Twitter. It is a side by side comparison of a passage from “1984″ to the news report from a former senior FBI official that the FBI can turn on the laptop cameras of individuals without activating the red light that shows the camera is operating.
The Washington Post broke the story. If the FBI is doing this without a warrant it is yet another nail in the coffin of the US 4th Amendment, which guarantees people the right not to have government snoop through their personal effects without evidence of wrongdoing and a judge’s permission.
Obama continues to shred the U. S. Constitution and the American people cheer him on.
