Pembroke Pines, Fl (PRWEB) September 29, 2012
UmeNow announced today that the warrantless surveillance of Americans should be one of the focal points of the upcoming Presidential debates.
After months of litigation, the Justice Department has submitted documents to the ACLU that unequivocally show that under President Obama's administration Americans have been subjected to warrantless surveillance at an alarming scale.
"More than 50 million people will watch the first debate on Wednesday at the University of Denver. President Obama owes Americans an explanation. Why has Obama permitted warrantless spying on Americans? This is an important question ethical journalists should ask," stated Evelyn Castillo-Bach, CEO of UmeNow.com, a private network that has banned all tracking and all ads.
The Huffington Post reported yesterday that under the Obama administration the country has experienced a sharp increase in the number of people subjected to warrantless electronic surveillance of their telephone, email and Facebook accounts by federal law enforcement agencies. The ACLU has released documents obtained from the Justice Department through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that reveal that federal law enforcement agencies are increasingly monitoring Americans’ electronic communications, and doing so without warrants, sufficient oversight, or meaningful accountability.
The New York Times reported, earlier this year, that cellphone carriers received 1.3 million demands for subscriber information in 2011 alone.
"President Obama needs to address this issue during the upcoming presidential debates. Americans deserve to know how a Romney administration would differ," stated Castillo-Bach.
