Plan to Let F.B.I. Track Mail in Terrorism Inquiries

Posted by Larry on May 21st, 2005 filed in Politics, Rant

The F.B.I. would gain broad authority to track the mail of people in terror investigations under a Bush administration proposal, officials said Friday, but the Postal Service is already raising privacy concerns about the plan.

The proposal, to be considered next week in a closed-door meeting of the Senate Intelligence Committee, would allow the bureau to direct postal inspectors to turn over the names, addresses and all other material appearing on the outside of letters
sent to or from people connected to foreign intelligence investigations.
