... unlike the controversy over targeted wiretaps of individuals' phone calls, this potential spying appears to be applied wholesale to all sorts of internet communications of countless citizens. - Mark Klein, former ATT technician.
The government has powerful computer search tools to filter through the gobs of internet and e-mail data, including our data. We've seen the government conduct mass arrests during protests, sweeping up protesters, journalists and bystanders alike. So if they can gather and filter through people in broad day light, it stands to reason the government would have little compunction to do it with our private information.
My question is, why isn't the news media making reference to the revelations exposed by former ATT employee Mark Klein in their current reporting? The legal challenge brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation with support from Klein seems to be a logical dot to connect.
