While at&t representatives were making happy with us at last week’s Broadband Forum II, reports were circulating that the corporation was turning over data communications that traveled over its network to the National Security Agency.

Is at&t the only backbone carrier coorporating with the NSA? And finally, if the NSA is involved in this broad net approach, doesn’t it run counter to President Bush’s assertion that his warrantless wiretaping policy does not include communications between citizens within the U.S.?
