Gonzales Wants Internet Records Saved

By HOPE YEN
The Associated Press
Tuesday, September 19, 2006

WASHINGTON -- Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Tuesday that Congress should require Internet providers to preserve customer records, asserting that prosecutors need them to fight child pornography.

Gonzales and FBI Director Robert Mueller have met with several Internet providers, including Time Warner Inc.'s AOL, Comcast Corp., Google Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Verizon Communications Inc.

The law enforcement officials have indicated to the companies they must retain customer records, possibly for two years. The companies have discussed strengthening their retention periods _ which currently run the gamut from a few days to about a year _ to help avoid legislation.

During those meetings, which took place earlier this summer, Justice Department officials asserted that customer records would help them investigate child pornography cases. But the FBI also said during the meetings that such records would help their terrorism investigations, said one person who attended the meetings but spoke on condition of anonymity because the meetings were intended to be private.

Testifying to a Senate panel, Gonzales acknowledged the concerns of some company executives who say legislation might be overly intrusive and encroach on customers' privacy rights. But he said the growing threat of child pornography over the Internet was too great.

Just another way to spy on Americans...and possibly to create falsified "proof" of wrongdoing?

And of course if you hide it under the guise of Child porn, national security or some other catchphrase, then it can be ushered in with the help of the bleating rehearsed sheeple. Any excuse to bring the new american style fascism into effect. Keep a record of dissenters for future reference.

I expect they are already doing so and have been for some time. Just like those (supposed) older list they were keeping. Just more proof that this really is - A War on Freedom!
