Attorney General Proposes to Invade Internet User Privacy
Attorney General, Alberto "Smiley" Gonzales is floating a proposal which would require Internet companies to retain for government inspection a record of Internet sites visited by their users. Variously, the need to stop child pornography, national security and computer crimes are cited by the Justice Department as reasons for the proposal.
Critics see Gonzales's proposal as "just another step toward total surveillance of citizens, joining warrantless wiretapping, secret scruting of library records, and unfettered access to email."
Here is a link to an article on Gonzales's proposal by John Reinan of McClatchy Newspapers.
