Let start off by saying that this is not my attempt to "Benghazi" the stingray controversy, but I'm curious where the seizure order originated.

That's a confidential security matter, citizen. Now go about your business. Oh, and keep a cellphone on your person while you do, in case we need anything.

Now if only an ACLU case against the FBI would get the same documents ceased by a state's police force.
I played this game as a kid at school. It sucked.

Boy, if they're trying to convince people the U.S. is not a police state they're doing a lousy job.

Even when/if the Courts side with the ACLU, it's not like the administration gives a damn.
"State's rights"...who cares about that quaint old notion?
It's nice to see the President so, so worried about the degradation of law & order in Iraq. But maybe he could start paying some attention to the same problem in this country?

Stingray is only one of the IMSI-catcher devices. These things perform man-in-the-middle on the phone-to-network connection. (And I created this article back in 2005. So the thing is nothing new, and wasn't really new even then.)

Yeah. The nothing to hide argument only applies to us citizens.
