Obama Seeks More Eavesdropping on Internet

Obama is seeking more control of the Internet, a "frontier of freedom" he seeks to control.

President Barack Obama and his national security team are seeking to expand the government's role in  eavesdropping on the Internet including emails, social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as BlackBerries.
 
According to reports, the Obama White House plans to submit a bill after the new congress takes over both houses next January that would require all online services that provide communications between users to be enabled to comply with federal wiretap orders.
 
The proposed monitoring measures will affect encrypted e-mail, such as the popular BlackBerry, networking sites like Facebook or Twitter, as well communication sites such as Skype.
