DO NOT SPY List: Verizon and AT&T Complicity

As a current customer of Verizon, I was dismayed to learn that this company had potentially provided details of my private phone and internet records to the Bush Administration's illegal program for spying on innocent Americans. Today, MOVEON.org sent me a petition to sign up for the "Do Not Spy" list that mimics the "Do Not Call" list in nature. Here is their sample invitation letter for people to join the list:

Subject: Don't let AT&T and Verizon Spy on You


On Thursday, May 11, 2006 USA Today reported that the National Security Agency has been collecting phone records of tens of millions of Americans. Companies like AT&T and Verizon who provide services to hundred of millions of Americans have been giving over phone records to the NSA, even though the NSA had no warrant for those records.This is wrong so I signed on to the "Do Not Spy" list -- just like the "Do Not Call" list to stop telemarketers from invading your home-- except this list will tell telecoms to stay out of our private records.
