Sealed AT&T Wiretap Documents Leaked


Mark Klein, a former AT&T technician, alleges that AT&T illegally cooperated with the National Security Agency to install and perform surveillance programs. Klein's allegations are supported by exerptions from internal documents.

It is alleged that the program is more extensive then originally reported and directly authorized by President Bush. According to John Poindexter, the system provides officails with "instant access" to travel records and even banking transactions.

To "mollify critics," the program was renamed "Terrorism Information Awareness." Due to public backlash, the majority of funding was cut. In the end, essential hardware was left in place and more was "slipped" into "real world" telecomm offices.

Government also had another program with the initials TIA - Total Information Awareness. Same program perhaps?

TIA was to be an attempt to create a mammoth database of every scrap of trackable information for every person in the US that could be mined using custom built AI agents for various purposes.

  Me thinks  
we are way over due for an impeachment. This treasonous affront to the Bill of Rights has gone too far and for too long. It doesn’t surprise me at all anymore, which is somewhat dangerous. When we become complacent to the constant barrage of rights abuse we tend to become desensitized and allow more and more abuse till there is nothing left to abuse. WAKE UP PEOPLE! It is getting worse, fast.

Next they will rename the Iraq war the “Fuzzy bunny, fluff fluff, hoppy good time” to “mollify critics” and make it more acceptable to a skeptical public.

Welcome to the Libs stew pit.

Dubya should be forced to eat a copy of the Bill of Rights with breakfast every morning so we all know he got his daily recommended allowance.
