172. Aren't these 'phone lines' secured ? Is AllTel out of Little Rock

involved, too ? They already were fined for not certifying that data was being protected. Convenient, if spying was being done.

"The FCC yesterday proposed fining Alltel as well as the new AT&T $100,000 each for violating privacy certification. The carriers were not caught exposing or releasing customers' records. Instead the companies are being fined because they failed to provide accurate certification that they have protected their customers data. If the carriers can prove they have met the certification requirements, they will not be fined. Other carriers whose records clearly have been obtained by investigative agencies have not been fined by the FCC for certification. The four largest carriers, each of which have had records leak, are bringing new suits against the agencies that have obtained their customers' records illegally""

FCC Fines Alltel For Lack of Privacy Certification

I find the information "...each of which have had records leak..." particularly informative.
