Do you play any instruments? http://streamate.in.net/ streamate Because of Edward Snowden, we now know that the National Security Agency is monitoring the electronic communications of millions of Americans. The searches are based on blanket search warrants approved by the federal judges on the Foreign Intelligence Security Act court. The FISA court routinely approves the surveillances and would probably allow the NSA to bug a ham sandwich if the secret agency made the request. One way to make the process more transparent would be to require Senate confirmation of any federal judge nominated to sit on the FISA court.
