twitter's Journal: Whistle-blower Had to Fight NSA, LA Times to Tell Story.

Journal by twitter
Mark Klein, Whistle-blower and former AT&T technician, is telling us more about his disturbing find and fight to disclose it. Perhaps worse than the spy network itself was the LA Times decision to cover it up:

Klein says he decided to take his documents to the Los Angeles Times, to blow the whistle on what he calls "an illegal and Orwellian project." Click Here for Full Blotter Coverage. But after working for two months with LA Times reporter Joe Menn, Klein says he was told the story had been killed at the request of then-Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte and then-director of the NSA Gen. Michael Hayden. The Los Angeles Times' decision was made by the paper's editor at the time, Dean Baquet, now the Washington bureau chief of The New York Times.

Be afraid.
