There's the kicker 'Currently'.. fwiw, I believe Cisco has already produced
software/routers that will allow for the 'wire tap' functionality of all
traffic.  One could easily implement the Majic Lantern or Aardvark projects
at that level and trigger intercept via packet analysis - in real time.
Further rapid response, DHS personnel, could then act upon the data faster
then a 911 distress call.  Pretty much Buck Rogers stuff for sure.  The
other problem is the physical evidence portion of this.. which pulls this OT
thread way Off Topic. ;-)
