The NSA is watching, listening and reading everything

If you are still a bit hazy as to what the NSA does, after you read this there won't be any question. Whistle-blower Mike Klein recently said that he witnessed and help set up a secret NSA room at an AT&T switching center in San Francisco. While that in itself is not that disconcerting, what he said he noticed while wiring the room was that the equipment being installed was unable to do the specific filtering tasks the government claimed it wanted to do. Instead of filtering, Mr. Klein claims the only capabilities the equipment had was of sending duplicates of all Web, e-mail, and phone activity. This is all probably not news, just a friendly reminder to think twice about the government. There is some real scary stuff over at DailyTech: Check it out.
