USA Today: Five Intelligence Committee Members Say AT&T Participated in Spying Program

In a follow-up to its story last month on the NSA's illegal spying, USA Today backed off claims about BellSouth and Verizon, but confirmed its claims about AT&T, reporting that, "Five members of the intelligence committees said they were told by senior intelligence officials that AT&T participated in the NSA domestic calls program." AT&T told the paper that "The U.S. Department of Justice has stated that AT&T may neither confirm nor deny AT&T's participation in the alleged NSA program...."

Last Friday, EFF argued in court that our case against AT&T should be allowed to go forward. If you are as concerned as we are by the government's power grab over your personal information, please consider donating to EFF to help stop this illegal spying.
