The Death Star

Wired News has posted the AT&T documents on Big Business/Brother spying on the American Public at the request of the Bush Administration.

AT&T's Implementation of NSA Spying on American Citizens

31 December 2005

I wrote the following document in 2004 when it became clear to me that AT&T, at the behest of the National Security Agency, had illegally installed secret computer gear designed to spy on internet traffic. At the time I thought this was an outgrowth of the notorious Total Information Awareness program, which was attacked by defenders of civil liberties. But now it's been revealed by The New York Times that the spying program is vastly bigger and was directly authorized by President Bush, as he himself has now admitted, in flagrant violation of specific statutes and constitutional protections for civil liberties. I am presenting this information to facilitate the dismantling of this dangerous Orwellian project.

The term Orwellian has bandied about way too much but it is dead on to describe what the Bush Administration in conjunction with Big Business, has been doing.

And for the apologists for this spying on the American public all I have to say to you is that you are truly UnAmerican and are helping the terrorists. No wait you are terrorists.

Pow right in the kisser!
