Verizon forced to hand over phone records to the NSA
According to a Government order issued secretively in April, Verizon Wireless is being forced to hand over phone records to the National Security Agency.
The Guardian has obtained a complete copy of the order which would allow the NSA total access to the phone records for millions of Verizon customers made between April 25th and July 19th. Verizon would have to disclose "originating and terminating" phone numbers as well as location, time and duration of the all calls - both foreign and domestic.
Verizon has declined to comment, however Sky News has stated that a "senior Obama administration official" has confirmed the story.
Pretty creepy if you ask me. Verizon customers, what are your thoughts?
