Old news for most of you, but I figured I should link to Wired magazine publishing the evidence that AT&T has been assisting the NSA in their spying on you, and that they've explained why.

A few weeks ago I was having some misgivings about participating in The Free Network Project. I was concerned that there were legitimate cases where being able to track the author or source of a document was important. I'm now thinking that that importance is being overshadowed by a government and its collaborators out of control.

And for all those who claim that such measures are necessary to "stop the terrorists", like our future CIA head Gen. Michael Hayden: I wouldn't be as concerned about it if you guys showed the slightest fucking modicum of competence in your pursuit of "the terrorists". Instead we see repeated actions which look a heck of a lot like your real goal is to keep us all in a state of unease.
