    The Internet has been under constant surveillance since at least the mid 90's why the fuck is this news to anyone?

    its not the same at all. one the big changes would be things like skype (that currently can't be monitored due to encryption) would have to allow a loophole for eavsedropping with a warrant. Its similar for a bunch of other protocols that can't really be monitored due to encryption and other technologis. Tor would be another big target I assume and so would off-the-record.

    The nsa maybe... skype has been pretty well beat on publicly by experts and hasn't feel. outside of the nsa bribing/extorting the skype developers, I don't they they will be able to do it.

    It would also mean that people who actually investigate crimes that aren't of serious national security (local, state police, field fbi, etc) don't have access to the code that could decrypt skype conversations

    It makes it news because obama said he was going to repeal the patriot act

    In 2003, Obama provided the following answers to those three questions...

    Would you vote to repeal the Patriot Act?

    Yes, I would vote to repeal the U.S. Patriot Act, although I would consider replacing that shoddy and dangerous law with a new, carefully crafted proposal that addressed in a much more limited fashion the legitimate needs of law enforcement in combating terrorism (for example, permitting a warrant for the interception of cell phone calls, and not just land-based phones to accommodate changes in technology).

    Obama flip-flops on Patriot Act & other issues

    People you better get off your dead asses because the beast is hungry for freedom and his name is obamanation

    I didn't support this under Bush. I still don't support this under Obama.

    Where's the hypocrisy, exactly?

    Do you REALLY think that there is any commercial encryption out there that the NSA can't break, and hasn't been able to break for years?
