Petraeus Saga Stirs Email Privacy Debate
Inspired by the sex scandal surrounding former CIA Director David Petraeus, the Senate Judiciary Committee called for a vote on the issue of whether to advance legislation that would require
authorities to obtain a probable-cause warrant to get access to all e-mail and other content stored in the so-called cloud. It would be “just as a warrant is required to search a car or
house,” Wired reports. The committee plans to hold its vote at the end of November.
