It's not only keywords that matter. The context of the words can be determined as well. Also DPI (deep packet inspection) is being used. A quote sometimes attributed to J Edgar Hoover & sometimes to Nelson Rockefeller said "If you don't want it known, don't use the phone." We can use that same advice with email.

These days, Facebook & Twitter make it much easier to monitor the net since everyone wants his 15 minutes of fame. I'm so glad that I don't use them. Google is also used to monitor the net.

Steve Rambam has plenty on the subject. Search for him on Google..

"Cain and Able"
It's a network sniffer that sniffs network data making it possible to get passwords and other sensitive information across networks or using a wireless connection.

Correct & I don't think that the Gov is using Cain & Able.

I looked for it after I saw the post, I just hadn't seen the software before. Don't tend to have a need for that kinda thing. Looks like it might be usefull for some people...notice a lot of "lost" password help requests. I imagine there are a lot of people that are pastors that are being watched. :)

There are a number of network packet sniffers, wireshark previously known as Ethereal & Ettercap, just to name two. Sniffing a remote system is quite different than sniffing your own private network. Since law enforcement couldn't keep up with technology, the Feds enacted some laws that required manufacturers of communication devices to provide a "backdoor" so that law enforcement would he able to see & hear, what was being transmitted. Encryption is a defense to that although some encryption can be broken. There are also laws governing the export of encryption & the demand by law enforcement to give them access.
