It almost hurts to say this (no it doesn't) but I told you so.
Are all telephone calls recorded and accessible to government?
Of course they are.
I've been saying this for a long time.
But never mind old leftystrat - he's a crazy conspiracy nut. He sees the NSA in every cloud outside (not to mention every cloud on the internet).
Now that it's out in the open, all that's left to discover are the trivialities, like whether it's the NSA or other similar letter-agency. We knew about Echelon years ago.
Why do you think they're building huge new datacenters? Because they like to sign contracts?
What else might they be up to?
Now that this information is leaking big time, what do you plan to do about it?
I'd rather be a crazy conspiracy theorist, actually. This is one time I don't want to be right.
