Corrected: Story Linked is from 2005

You had to expect this to be the case, but here's your confirmation.

“It’s the largest database ever assembled in the world,” said one person, who, like the others who agreed to talk about the NSA’s activities, declined to be identified by name or affiliation. The agency’s goal is “to create a database of every call ever made” within the nation’s borders, this person added.

The Right Scoop... has just alerted everyone that he didn't check the date, and of course I didn't either. (Dates are for p*ssies.)

But the story is still true. Still, of course, it adds some political context -- this isn't all Obama, of course. Though Obama was the one who vowed this would not happen under his watch, and ran against Bush for believing he could "enhance our security" by "restricting our liberties."

Furthermore, it appears the point-- that it's not just Verizon, it's all phone companies -- is quite true.
