On the NSA and the Organisations It Tracks

The Washington Post and the U.K.’s Guardian reported that the U.S. National Security Agency, as part of its foreign intelligence efforts, had access to customer call records from Verizon, and is monitoring emails, photos, search histories and other data at Microsoft, Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, PalTalk, YouTube, Skype, AOL and Apple. The cited companies have provided varied responses on this topic.

MY TAKE
Given that 1) internet firms regularly analyze and sell customer information and 2) the NSA has access to this information under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), these actions should not be surprising. However, the non-denial denial responses from the internet firms seem hard to believe.
