AT&T: NSA's Butt-Buddy

Have AT&T?  Never fear; they're keeping track of you for NSA.

The National Security Agency’s ability to spy on vast quantities of Internet traffic passing through the United States has relied on its extraordinary, decades-long partnership with a single company: the telecom giant AT&T.

While it has been long known that American telecommunications companies worked closely with the spy agency, newly disclosed N.S.A. documents show that the relationship with AT&T has been considered unique and especially productive. One document described it as “highly collaborative,” while another lauded the company’s “extreme willingness to help.

Yah.  The very same AT&T which GM selected as its Wi-Fi carrier!

Maybe NSA has some favorite movies they'll run for you in-car, eh?
