The biggest, unconstitutional data-mining operation in history...

...at least to those of us who believe there are protection from unreasonable searches and seizures, or any sort of right to privacy. The NSA has -- with the cooperation of AT&T, Verizon, and BellSouth -- collected the phone records of most anyone who made a telephone call, anywhere! Remember those statements by the president asserting this program was constrained to suspected terrorists making an international, and that they are only done after a warrant was granted? I can't imagine any administration more dishonest than this one.

The one tiny bit of good news in this is that Quest managed to stand up for the privacy of its customers, even in the face of an administration willing to exploit both fear and nationalistism for such unamerican means.
