The EFF and AT&T are heading to court over allegations that the phone company violated the privacy of its customers

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is currently sueing AT&T for helping the National Security Agency (NSA) execute wiretaps on American citizens without filing warrants.  The EFF alledges that not only did AT&T let the NSA intercept and analyze millions of phone calls made by Americans, but  the company has also been accused of giving the NSA direct access to databases of communication records.

There is much more on the subject from the EFF Class Action Lawsuit page here

I might be the only person that feels this way but i too disagree with wiretaps though in the same sense i know they are necessary. Wiretaps is the kinda thing the public should not know about the kind of thing the government does but no one ever hears about. The fact that Bush and others have brought to light the wiretaps was a stupid stupid move. Wiretaps no one knows about are fine wiretaps everyone knows about bad!

I have no problems with the wiretaps as long as it's been approved by courts.

Exactly!!! Wiretaps are good, I'd just like to have the checks and balances the Constitution says we have. A secret court (FISA) is already set up to approve them and has been used extensively in the past. The current administration chose to cut them out of the loop.
