Great, so the NSA really decided to illegally spy on ALL Americans. You can thank Darth VP Cheney for that. I can’t believe that no legal action was taken against the companies that allowed it or the government agency that did it illegally. You have to really respect Qualcomm for being the only ISP that refused to go through with it.
Former National Security Agency analyst Russell Tice, who helped expose the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping in December 2005, has now come forward with even more startling allegations. Tice told MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on Wednesday that the programs that spied on Americans were not only much broader than previously acknowledged but specifically targeted journalists.
“The National Security Agency had access to all Americans’ communications — faxes, phone calls, and their computer communications,” Tice claimed. “It didn’t matter whether you were in Kansas, in the middle of the country, and you never made foreign communications at all. They monitored all communications.”
