Privacy of Telecommunications News Byte: Congress Aides Warned of Email Security Breach

by Wochit 0:58 mins

A broad coalition of groups supporting everything from religion, drugs, and digital rights to guns and the environment sued the National Security Agency today, demanding a federal judge immediately halt what they are calling an "unconstitutional program of dragnet electronic surveillance" stemming from the government's vast collection of Americans' phone-calling data.
