This book is really quite outstanding and unique. It describes the aspects by which federal agencies conduct legal intercepts of those involved in criminal activities, including terrorism, money laundering, drugs, kidnapping and other serious crimes. In some instances of capturing communications over the internet, non-targeted communications may unintentionally be collected as well. The authors describe how the system is extremely far reaching, highly technical, very complicated, well financed, international, and undetectable. Criminals who use today¿s communication systems including hard wire, wireless, cell, phone cameras, cordless, microwave, satellite, PDAs, email, instant messaging, VoIP, etc., are susceptible to having their discussions and messages intercepted. Even packet data traveling by various routes can be identified, captured and delivered in encrypted form to law enforcement monitoring centers in real time. Monitoring centers are high technology facilities equipped with their own security systems and are staffed with personnel from various federal agencies. At these facilities, they receive, review, analyze, store, and catalog data, to disrupt planning by terrorists, detect and thwart their attacks, track their movements, make arrests and plan liquidation measures. To make positive identification ¿voice banks,¿ i.e., samples of voice, are used to compare against newly captured voice communications. They also have geographical information systems to locate fixed addresses and mobile locations. Because telephone service providers (TSP) and internet service providers (ISP)tend to be very efficient performers in today¿s highly competitive, technical markets, they are very efficient in assisting federal agencies in installing equipment, and surmounting technical obstacles. With the help of ISPs, federal agencies monitor suspect¿s activities on the internet. They can track who visits web sites, how long they stay, what key words may have attracted them there, and which chat rooms they visit. If encrypted, the National Security Agency (NSA) can decrypt it. The US works in cooperation with at least 50 foreign countries and that figure is presumably growing. The US is helping Mexico establish a similar system to monitor communications of its illegal drug business. The authors inform us that intercept access points (IAP) can be installed virtually anywhere in a network and may be near to, or distant from the target, and are undetectable and invisible. There are challenges in intercepting some communications but the system is so sophisticated with proprietary hardware and software, so well-staffed, and so well-attended it adapts to changing technologies and absorbs and accommodates them to ensure its own existence and continuity, resulting in new and improved solutions. The book¿s topic begs the question: Should the average citizen be concerned about their privacy being violated by federal agencies? The answer is ¿No¿ Lawful intercepts cannot be conducted without a court order and a court order is not issued unless it can be shown the suspect is involved in significant criminal activity. Federal law enforcement agencies are like any other organization. They have budgets, limited time and resources and are required to produce results consequently there is no time, resources, or interest in the life of the average citizen.
