In all the verbal confetti being thrown around considering the revelation that American citizen’s phone”meta-data” is being recorded it is important to remember this from 1 month ago:
Regardless of their claims about “meta-data” they are recording the actual conversations as well. I have wondered on many stories these last few years how newspaper reports could offer transcripts of phone calls after the fact. This explains how. Calls are not being listened to in real time, but if they want to “get” someone they can pick through all their calls, texts, and emails until they find something to “investigate”.
Just one more stick added to the camel’s back. How much can he bear?
