I too question this, and wonder whether or how much of FBI's procedures for launching an investigation (and whether they properly were followed here) will be discussed as part of any Congressional investigation into the matter.

once could of course use PGP or ENIGMAIL, or just use zip with an pre-agreed symetrical password

but there is still traffic analysis: why is Bob texting to Alice ?

re: The Petraeus Affair: Surveillance State Stopper?
That FBI agents are conducting or initiating investigations on little more than a complaint based on a personal relationship should be disconcerting to anyone. That the investigation has revealed little which can be placed in the "illegal" realm beyond movements of senior military officials or harassment only further questions the basis of a continued investigation. The issue seems to have been completely blown out of proportion and I believe that as much as the generals actions, the actions of the FBI or agents involved need to be analyzed.
