The Obama administration reportedly wants to make it easier for the FBI to obtain records on individual Internet activities without first obtaining a court order when it involves terrorism or intelligence investigations.

The Washington Post reported on its website Wednesday night that the administration wants to add to the list of items that can be obtained without a judge's permission any "electronic communication transactional records."

The report said this new category of information could include e-mail addresses, times and dates that e-mails are sent and received, and possibly an Internet user's browser history.

The newspaper said the data would not include actual content of e-mails and other communications.
