NSA knows about all your boring calls

"I said I didn't have a bomb."
"But sir, you said bomb."

How good is Meet the Parents?

Remember when you drunk dialed a long lost friend, ordered a pizza, or argued with your significant other? Guess who knows you made that call? A lot of stuffy white men. Nice.

USA Today released an article about the newly uncovered NSA phone record database:

"The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren't suspected of any crime. This program does not involve the NSA listening to or recording conversations. But the spy agency is using the data to analyze calling patterns in an effort to detect terrorist activity, sources said in separate interviews. (
USA Today)"

I smell a press statement.

"Bush said that 'if al-Qaeda or their associates are making calls into the United States or out of the United States, we want to know what they're saying.' "

Just that simple.
