Patriot Act going Global? UK Seeks Authority to Serve Warrants in America

Britain has been negotiating a plan with the United States which would allow the UK to directly serve wiretap warrants on American communications companies for national security and criminal proceedings.The claim is that everything has gone global and terror is no exception, so this is the only next logical step in combating it.

As reported in USA today:

British and U.S. officials have been negotiating a plan that could allow British authorities to directly serve wiretap orders on U.S. communications companies in criminal and national security inquiries, U.S. officials have confirmed

“Such an agreement would ensure U.S. access to data stored in the United Kingdom in support of law enforcement, terrorism, and other transnational threat investigations and support our partners’ ability to investigate serious crime, as well as terrorism and other transnational threats on a reciprocal basis,”

Considering how many threats they’ve known about and been able to actually thwart, this surely isn’t about further chipping away at everyone’s privacy along with American Constitutional protections as well as national sovereignty at all.

Never mind the fact that “Homeland Security” has not stopped one terrorist plot at all..ever( wouldn’t they have to, in order to justify their existence?) Or that a Majority of the supposedly thwarted plots were actually F.B.I. led contrived situations. You kind of have to ask yourself the question of, “is any of this increased security/spying actually working for or against the American People??”

It’s also no secret that U.S. and U.K. government’s have been sharing intelligence on each others citizens (Er, uh I mean Suspects) for decades. But now they are moving forward with the next phase in the global surveillance/Big brother Superstate.
