51. Which of those things do you think they've been searching or seizing without a warrant?

Persons, houses, papers, or effects? Clearly it isn't persons, houses, or effects. Papers can legitimately be extended to include any communication in a modern context, but those aren't being searched or seized without a warrant either when the subject is an American person. What's being seized is telephone company records of communications, not the communications themselves. Non-Americans aren't protected by the Fourth Amendment, so there's no evidence of any Fourth Amendment violation in any of what's been "revealed" recently.
