AT&T, NSA, Bush accused of violations of Telcom Act of 1934

And this doesn't come from Democratic Underground.

Bloomberg.com: Worldwide: "June 30 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. National Security Agency asked AT&T Inc. to help it set up a domestic call monitoring site seven months before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, lawyers claimed June 23 in court papers filed in New York federal court.

The allegation is part of a court filing adding AT&T, the nation's largest telephone company, as a defendant in a breach of privacy case filed earlier this month on behalf of Verizon Communications Inc. and BellSouth Corp. customers. The suit alleges that the three carriers, the NSA and President George W. Bush violated the Telecommunications Act of 1934 and the U.S. Constitution, and seeks money damages."

Well, now. That seems to be "a pattern of organized criminal activity" to me. Seems to me that the place we are in is not simply the result of general ineptitude and delusion, but are on the short end of a plan to gut our Constitution and strip us of the dignities and Liberties due free citizens of this Republic.

If you are a true Patriot, you should be outraged. Do any yet remain?
