A secret court order surfaced on Wednesday, revealed that the NSA is secretly spying on every single Verizon customer. Today's WSJ claims that the NSA that the same spying is happening on AT&T and Sprint customers.
The newsier bit is that ISPs and credit card companies are also working with the NSA. According to the WSJ:
NSA also obtains access to data from Internet service providers on Internet use such as data about email or website visits, several former officials said. NSA has established similar relationships with credit-card companies, three former officials said.
Between the telecoms, the ISPs, the credit card companies, and the technology giants, you should be seeing a pattern by now. All fo the companies you trust have been handing over information to the government. You can expect the net of complicity to keep expanding. [WSJ]
