it's offical: USA = Nazis

U.S. agents can seize travelers' laptops: report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. federal agents have been given new powers to seize travelers' laptops and other electronic devices at the border and hold them for unspecified periods the Washington Post reported on Friday.

Under recently disclosed Department of Homeland Security policies, such seizures may be carried out without suspicion of wrongdoing, the newspaper said, quoting policies issued on July 16 by two DHS agencies.

Agents are empowered to share the contents of seized computers with other agencies and private entities for data decryption and other reasons, the newspaper said.

DHS officials said the policies applied to anyone entering the country, including U.S. citizens, and were needed to prevent terrorism.

The measures have long been in place but were only disclosed in July, under pressure from civil liberties and business travel groups acting on reports that increasing numbers of international travelers had had their laptops, cellphones and other digital devices removed and examined.

The policies cover hard drives, flash drives, cell phones, iPods, pagers, beepers, and video and audio tapes -- as well as books, pamphlets and other written materials, the report said.

The policies require federal agents to take measures to protect business information and attorney-client privileged material. They stipulate that any copies of the data must be destroyed when a review is completed and no probable cause exists to keep the information.

Not sure how this behavior makes the US genocidal meglomaniacs

Not that anyone should agree with this legislation but not sure how it makes the US a bunch of Nazis.

Not every comparison to 30s-40s German government tactics are related to their treatment of minorities. In the big picture their absconding of rights and Patriot Act like tactics were much more insidious and encompassing.

When I travel to Europe or South America I find it easier to FedEx my computer to my office from whereever I am. I keep the harddrive with me and keep a ghost image on a datakey. I have my computer when I get back to home base [or my first US stop] and have never had an issue. They don't seem to have an interest in a computer that is driveless or a drive that is computerless. Work can be done on the road at any number of places if I get stuck.
