Enorme base de datos generada por la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional

Continuamos con el incesante ataque estatal contra nuestras libertades. Ahora resulta que la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional (NSA) en EEUU ha estado generando la base de datos más grande del mundo que consiste en (casi) la totalidad de llamadas telefónicas hechas en ese país. Démosle la bienvenida a Big Brother.

The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren't suspected of any crime. This program does not involve the NSA listening to or recording conversations. But the spy agency is using the data to analyze calling patterns in an effort to detect terrorist activity, sources said in separate interviews.

Last year, Bush said he had authorized the NSA to eavesdrop — without warrants — on international calls and international e-mails of people suspected of having links to terrorists when one party to the communication is in the USA. Warrants have also not been used in the NSA's efforts to create a national call database.
