Unlikely_Hero (900172) writes "National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell has confirmed in an interview with the El Paso Times that AT&T and Verizon have both been helping the Bush Administration conduct wiretaps. He also claims that only 100 Americans are under surveilance, that it takes 200 hours to assemble a FISA warrant on a telephone number and suggests that companies like AT&T and Verizon that "cooperate" (read, collude) with the Administration should be granted immunity from the lawsuits they currently face regarding the issue.

No Immunity! (1)

These dirtbags should feel lucky they don't end up in jail and they should be held personally accountable for the wrongs they have committed.

It's time to clean up the US IT infrastructure. The price of your rights and privacy was $200,000,000,000 [slashdot.org] and industry consolidation, which has cost even more. That consolidation should be undone, and the air waves liberated. I am so angry about the neglect and abuse of infrastructure that I almost think turning over all of it to Municipal Co-operatives would be better. The first step is to root out people who have violated the law and Constitution.
