FCC chairman says the feds need more wiretapping powers after Paris attacks
#1
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler told Congress yesterday that, following the attacks on Paris, wiretapping laws should be expanded, The Washington Post reports.

Wheeler's comments focused specifically on the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, known as CALEA, a 1994 act that forced telephone companies to make their phones easier to wiretap and that has been controversially extended to other communications. Wheeler, in his comments, suggested further broadening the scope of "lawful intercept," which provides for law enforcement wiretaps under CALEA.
