1. Next question:
What are the names of the "major telecommunication agencies" that cooperated (willingly, eagerly?) with the bush administration to monitor, eavesdrop, wiretap, whatever term you want, on millions of conversations?

Good grief.

====================

Thanks, liveoaktx.

6. The fact that it's legal for them to eavesdrop without a warrant,
as long as they get a warrant 72 hours later, complicates the matter of saying it's the phone companies' fault.

They can't say we won't eavesdrop for the NSA without a warrant.

8. I didn't say it's their "fault"

I understand the pressure that is brought to bear, but I am curious as to the names of these companies and of course I'd like to know what resistance, if any, they offered as bush was twisting their arm.

I bet Verizon capitulated without a word of dissent.

edit: You bring up another good point: How many of those wiretaps were done without a follow-up warrant within the next 72 hours?

4. Can you also post Olbermann's long message to his former
friend John Gibson, from the 30-minute to 39-minute mark? (I also asked Crooks and Liars.)

Olbermann ended by saying Gibson has forfeited his right to broadcast and should resign.
