Joseph P. Nacchio, former CEO of Qwest Communications International, reported that his firm was approached more than six months before the September 11, 2001, attacks and asked to participate in a spying operation that Qwest believed to be illegal.
The essential hardware elements of a (Total Information Awareness)-type spy program are being surreptitiously slipped into 'real world' telecommunications offices.
There may be dozens of surveillance rooms in AT&T offices around the country.
The internet surveillance program covers domestic traffic, not just international traffic.
The system is capable of looking at content, not just addresses. The Narus software exists primarily to conduct sophisticated rule-based analysis of content.
Transit traffic originating with one ISP and destined for another is also being sniffed if it crosses AT&T's network. Ironically, because the taps are installed at the point at which that network connects to the rest of the world, the safest web surfers are AT&T subscribers visiting websites hosted on AT&T's network. Their traffic doesn't pass through the splitters.
