EFF Sues AT&T to Stop Illegal Surveillance

I wasn't aware of this case, and it seems to speak to larger issues in the NSA wiretapping case. Rumours and innuendo are one thing, but it takes credible evidence to get a lawsuit to this point, and the EFF doesn't have a history of frivolous actions. They tend to deal with fairly serious public communication issues, and they rarely put their money behind something that doesn't pan out for real.

The crux of the allegations is that the NSA has had access to internet and phone traffic from large commercial networks in the US, access that seems to complete. If nothing else, it raises some serious questions about how much information is getting sifted through the NSA seive. I'll have to keep a watch on this one I think.


Its your karma … use it wisely
