The War on America

Just when you thought all these unprecedented disclosures didn't affect you (unless you were plotting a terrorist attack), Reuters has this:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.
I wonder what secret government wiretapping program this information came from?

And just remember, one can be investigated on drug charges for things as mundane as buying too much Sudafed.

 More as this develops...
