The ambiguity is probably useful to tricksters.
"Warrantless" means "without a warrant," or "without written permission" of the judiciary. "Unwarranted" means "without justification" unnecessary.
A warrant, in United States tradition, is a means by which the judicial branch balances the power of the executive cops must observe certain limitations unless a judge gives them written permission to do otherwise. That written permission is the warrant itself.
Principals in the U.S. executive branch have recently claimed a need for surveillance and searches of private electronic information without possession of a warrant.
Prodigies of deception, freaky right-wing American neo-conservatives, talking in fine words, a repetition of words, a continuous ribbon of banter, are stealing private liberties in moments of distraction.
First, without a warrant... later, without warrant.
