Breaking News: Fourth Amendment Takes a Back Seat in U.S. Constitution

July 10, 2008 marks an important day in U.S. history. Today, President Bush signed the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 bill into law. The landmark decision, approved by the Senate with a vote of 69 to 28, permits the National Security Agency (NSA) to conduct “warrantless surveillance” of all United States citizens, even without probable cause.
