USA Today Publishes Update on NSA Snooping Story


03/07/2006

The popular American newspaper, USA Today, has updated a controversial story that accused several major telephone carriers of helping the National Security Agency compile a database of call records and personal information.

The original article, which was published on May 11, alleged that AT&T, Verizon, and BellSouth all cooperated with the program, secretly collecting personal data behind their customers` backs. BellSouth and Verizon have both denied the allegations, while AT&T has refused to comment decisively.

USA Today has now released new information confirming that the NSA compiled a database of call records, but suggesting that the program might not be as extensive as originally thought.

In actual fact, there is no solid evidence to suggest that BellSouth or Verizon were directly involved with the program, although it seems likely that MCI, Verizon`s long distance subsidiary, did cooperate.

USA Today admits that there are still many questions to be answered, including the legality of the NSA`s snooping program, which legislators do not agree on.
