We have soldiers out there in Iraq, trying to deal with the situation that is going on. They are reaching out to their girl friends and wives and the government is listening into their conversations. They are making recordings of the conversations and then government employees are trading these recordings. WOW. It doesn't get any more screwed up then that.

This is why we can't have the government listening to phone calls without a court order and a dam good reason to be getting that court order.

Everyone who was doing this and everyone up the chain of command need to be fired, have any pensions taken away and be prosecuted.


U.S. spied on Americans' intimate conversations abroad (http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/10/09/spying.on.americans/index.html) - Congress is looking into allegations that National Security Agency linguists have been eavesdropping on Americans abroad.

David Murfee Faulk, a former U.S. Navy Arab linguist, said in the news report that he and his colleagues were listening to the conversations of military officers in Iraq who were talking with their spouses or girlfriends in the United States.

According to Faulk, they would often share the contents of some of the more salacious calls stored on their computers, listening to what he called "phone sex" and "pillow talk."

Remember the new Patriot Act from a few years ago. The Govt. doesnt need a court order to do anything anymore, they just have to say you were suspicious and then your done for. Its actually a pretty scary state of affairs and gives them freedom to do whatever they want.
