WSJ sticks up for UBS: "Apart from the diplomatic ramifications, the government's request for so broad a swath of information could well run afoul of the Fourth Amendment's protections against unreasonable search. The Obama Administration should use the court reprieve to rethink the whole case."

    1. Not sure where it falls, but when someone commits a crime the government has a reason to gather information. Its my understanding that UBS broke the law. If a warrant exists how can that be 4th Amendment?

     

    2. The Fourth Amendment relates to people not organizations.

     

    3. The Fourth Amendment does not apply to civil law.

     

    Correct me if I am wrong!

    The Obama Administration has ZERO interest in what the constitution states when it is incongruent with their agenda
