Got Verizon? Uncle Sam’s watching you…
From the most transparent Administration ever, via Glenn Greenwald at The Guardian:
The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America’s largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April.
The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an “ongoing, daily basis” to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.
So here it is: if you have Verizon, all your calls made and all your calls received will be analyzed by the NSA and/or the FBI.
And the good news? The IRS is not said to be involved… yet.
