US Postal Service Has Been Spying on Us

Apparently the FBI/DHS/ETC were too busy painting transsexual flags on their fingernails to keep close tabs on us; the post office has been enlisted to help spy:

The U.S. Postal Service has shared information from thousands of Americans’ letters and packages with law enforcement every year for the past decade, conveying the names, addresses and other details from the outside of boxes and envelopes without requiring a court order.

Ninety-seven percent of “mail cover” requests are approved.

The IRS, FBI and the Department of Homeland Security were among the top requesters. […]

In 1978, a circuit court judge said the mail covers could expose someone’s personal life “in a manner unobtainable even through surveillance of his movements,” rendering “the subject’s life an open book.”

But at least they aren’t actually opening envelopes. I hope.
