Y’all are familiar with the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. Right? The one that says:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
In other words, the government can’t go looking through my stuff except for something specific that they have good reason (probable cause) to believe they are going to find. Y’all knew that. Right?
Well, apparently Michael Hayden, the former director of the NSA didn’t know this.
