Spyland security

Bush Administration Has Been Using Illegal Wiretapping and Spying Activity for Political Purposes.

In an under covered trial in a California courtroom, a Constitutional drama of major significance is unfolding.

It is a federal lawsuit filed by Americans who claim that the Bush Administration, with the cooperation of AT&T, illegally spied on them. The Bush Administration has taken the Orwellian position that the trial must not be allowed to proceed because it would require the White House to reveal if they indeed have illegally monitored the plaintiffs – and that, the Bush Politburo argues, would violate "state secrets."

NSA - Nothing new about it.

SO the US Government have spied on people for political or social purposes, not a surprise.

The network we use for the web was developed by DARPA, i am sure the defense department would never leave a back door to their system.

If it were then why would a organization like the EEF be needed at all.

DARPA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technology for use by the military. DARPA was responsible for funding development of many technologies which have had a major impact on the world
