+ - NSA monitors all web traffic: ex-AT&T tech->

Submitted by Sir Tandeth
Sir Tandeth (543411) writes "http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Story?id=3833172&page=1 A former technician at AT&T, who alleges that the telecom giant forwards virtually all of its internet traffic into a "secret room" to facilitate government spying, says the whole operation reminds him of something out of Orwell's 1984. Appearing on MSNBC's Countdown program, whistleblower Mark Klein told Keith Olbermann that a copy of all internet traffic passing over AT&T lines was copied into a locked room at the company's San Francisco office — to which only employees with National Security Agency clearance had access."
