Hey, AT&T and some other international carriers "allowed" the NSA to access data via teir submerged cables...if they weren't comped monetarily, I'm sure they didn't do it out of some patriotic duty.   >:(

Oops, now just where did I leave my tin foil beenie ??!!   :'(  Ahh, now I remember! It's over at the old folks home where that sweet lady is knitting it in to a stocking cap.   ;D

It's winter, eh, ya hosers!  :)
