Bush Administration Telephone Spying Scandal -- Had Any Delicate Conversations in the Last 5 Years?

Oh, my! Have you had any conversations that you wish you could keep really, really private over, say the last five years? Conversations over the telephone, using either Verizon, GTE or Bell South as a carrier?

Uh, oh! Your conversation is probably in the National Security Adminstration's massive database compiled since 9/11.

But, not to worry, General Hayden, Bush's nomination to head the CIA, reassures us that, "Anything the NSA does is legal."

So, it's OK.

Read the Boston Globe article on the matter, using the link above. Can you believe the story was broken by USA Today?
