Democracy Now! 10/14 NSA and AT&T
« on: October 15, 2008, 02:49:10 am »

I only caught the last 20 mins or so but it was chilling.

Basically, this is an expose on how the NSA bullied the telecoms into spying on us. I listened to an AT&T tech who helped build a secret room in their San Francisco office specifically for spying on American communications, not foreign. And the listeners were laughing at the stuff they were hearing on the phone, making fun of casual conversations. There's another near St Louis. Ok, that's bad enough. What's really scary is that they are building a Superdome sized building near San Antonio for the data storage of ALL communications--landline, computer--in the US. And our idiots in Congress approved this!

Get a rope.

One single large facility?  How typical of those whose minds are locked into hierarchal ways of thinking...

I'm sure they figure that it's not going to be particularly vulnerable,  either.
