Black boxes for everyone

ThinkProgress.org picked up on an article originally published in the Wall Street Journal noting that the Bush administration is pushing for their wiretapping black box sensors to be installed in private corporations. Three reasons why this isn’t very smart: 1) controls and regulations, 2) it would provide more points of exposure to those who want to hack the Bush administration’s wiretapping solution, and 3) it’s just plain illegal. Of course, the government is aware of the 1st and 3rd points and doesn’t seem to care, and are probably too overconfident to be concerned about theƂ 2nd point.
