Update on telecom companies spying on Americans
A few months earlier, I posted some articles and information about how the major telecom companies (AT&T, Verizon, etc.) are colluding with our government to spy on Americans' phone calls without a court order or any kind of judicial oversight. I found some new information buried in an article about the passing of a House bill on banning torture by the CIA. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-5 to reject legislation that would have immunized the phone companies from being sued. Of course, the Cheney White House is vowing to veto.
