While we were sleeping, they created the Biggest Database Ever!
All you petty dictators and military rulers - you all have been left in the dust! I was thinking that maybe they have a list of a few tens of thousands of activists whose phone records are being monitored... but you see, this is America, and as Americans we do things right!
So this Bush decided to outdo 'em all - none of this selective phone monitoring - lets monitor the entire country. Thats right, the entire United States phone records are in this humongous database - and we are all suspects!
Welcome to America, land of the free...democracy, milk (lactose free, and goat milk also available), and honey... etc. etc.
THE NSA HAS YOUR NUMBER
The National Security Agency has been amassing a vast, secret database with records of tens of millions of telephone calls made by Americans, USA Today reported on Thursday. Telephone companies started to turn over records of millions of their customers' phone calls not long after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The government has created the largest database ever assembled, according to an anonymous source quoted by the newspaper.
The government apparently has even bigger plans "to create a database of every call ever made within the nation's borders" to identify and track suspected terrorists.
Think about that. Every phone call ever made.
