I wouldn't discount it. My reading is that most subpoena and
investigatory actions of home and business computers are local, FBI at
most if they're drawn into the case for help or because it's a federal
one. It would take some doing to get the NSA or Defense Dept involved,
and they are the ones doing the 24/7 monitoring.
