Last Friday, federal attorneys told the U.S. Third Circuit Court of
Appeals that government officials should be able to track the location
of Americans by following their cell phone transmissions — without
having to get a warrant. While the FBI and state and local officials
have already obtained logs from mobile phone companies that reveal the
locations of customers’ telephones, the practice has never formally
been endorsed by the courts. The latest federal arguments — and
rebuttals by civil liberties organizations — give the courts the
opportunity to either support or repudiate federal claims that
Americans have no ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ so long as they
carry cell phones...

I support giving the FBI all the tools they need, within international law, to track people.
Tracking people is NOT torture, and therefore FBI officers serving to protect the nation, should not worry about the morality of their activities in this regard.
