Submission + - ACLU: Warrantless Electronic Surveillance Surges Under Obama (informationclearinghouse.info)

sycodon writes: The ACLU has released documents that show that in the last two years the US Department of Justice has conducted more warrantless electronic surveillance, involving spying on telephones, email and Facebook accounts, than in the preceding decade.

Chris Soghoian, principal technologist at the ACLU's Speech, Privacy and Technology Project, commented: "We're seeing a massive increase in requests for what as a technologist I would call metadata, so it's not the what you say, but the who you say it to."
