The telecoms are finally fessing up, and have admitted that, yes, they have been turning over phone records, millions of them, to the NSA for years.
No big surprise here, except for for the sole holdout, Qwest, which was uneasy about the legal ramifications.
The only good news here is that is it now a headline event on the only real national, non-liberal paper in America and CNN, ABC, and even Yahoo! News have slugged it #1.
Let's see if they keep it above the fold.
Update: President Bush went on TV this morning and claimed that "we are not listening to ordinary American citizens." Maybe yes, maybe, no, but they definitely are collecting your telephone logs. What the hell for?
