If the government wants to snoop on someone, they have to issue a special warrant type, and the ISP must provide copies of all packets for the particular person. >From memory, there is no requirement to "decode" the packets and extract L4+ info. Just the raw IP suffices. There is a system developed and adopted by many ISPs to do this with minumum effort, and almost automated, involving dedicated switches and servers. A users packets are not logged until the warrant arrives, so they cannot say "give us all traffic that user bob sent last week".
