More Support for a Neutral Net

The title link goes to a story from In the article, a former AT&T employee comments on the extent of intrusion the NSA already has, and has had, in our telecommunications. At this point you are probably wondering why this is important, I think Mark Klein says it best: appears the NSA is capable of conducting what amounts to vacuum-cleaner surveillance of all the data crossing the internet -- whether that be peoples' e-mail, web surfing or any other data.

While the existence of the Echelon program is hardly a revelation, its alarming to think exactly how pervasive the program may be. Food for thought.


This is exactly what Mr. Klein is talking about. With scary technical spec. goodness. That's right everyone, this system can intercept the contents of Voice over Internet Protocol (or VoIP) phone calls. So much for the Fourth Amendment. James Madison is rolling over, again and again...
