Illegally tapping phone calls of suspected terrorists wasn’t enough for you? You had to compile a database of calls made by everyday, ordinary citizens, too? That’s just what this country needed, I think, John Ashcroft with an Oracle database listing every call we’ve made in the last 5+ years. Yeah. More info here.
At least one phone company had the balls to refuse – too bad Qwest doesn’t offer service in Texas.
For the right-wingers in the audience, this isn’t a question of necessity. It’s easy to see how useful this information would be (assuming we ever caught one of those little buggers in the first place). But where’s the asking of permission? Where is the oversight by elected, (semi)accountable officials?
Trust you, W? That’ll be the day. I voted for you, twice, but I’m beginning to think I was mistaken.
