NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily

Top secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over all call data shows scale of domestic surveillance under Obama
Glenn Greenwald


The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April.

The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.

The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk -- regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.

The secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (Fisa) granted the order to the FBI on April 25, giving the government unlimited authority to obtain the data for a specified three-month period ending on July 19.

Under the terms of the blanket order, the numbers of both parties on a call are handed over, as is location data, call duration, unique identifiers, and the time and duration of all calls. The contents of the conversation itself are not covered.

6645 I too am a former Verizon customer. Verizon is one screwed-up company. I used to have my long distance service with them, and I would get a bill from them only every other month. If I got a bill from them one month, I could count on not getting one the next, like clockwork. I wonder where those other bills went. I finally switched long distance carriers. Occasionally I will get someone else's bill. Like I said, they're screwed up. And with this revelation, I'm glad I quit them when I did.
