Privacy is a Thing of the Past

November 12, 2007

Your government is watching you (and me) at all times. According to this article, a retired AT&T technician says he connected a device in 2003 that diverts and copies onto a goverment supercomputer EVERY CALL, E-MAIL AND INTERNET SITE ACCESS ON THE AT&T SYSTEM.

And the deputy chief of national intelligence says we just have to trust the government and big business to properly safeguard our deepest secrets. So that’s okay then.

[UPDATE: Further reading on this subject reveals a quote from Mark Klein, the AT&T guy in this article: “[The spying equipment] copies everything. There’s no selection of anything, at all — the splitter copies entire data streams from the Internet, phone conversations, e-mail, web-browsing. Everything.” And the drones in Congress are arguing over whether to grant immunity to these giant corporations who are helping the government spy on everyone, not just so-called terrorists. Sleazebags, all.]
