I'm in favor of transparency...

But this isn't exactly what I had in mind. As reported in yesterday's USA Today:
The National Security Agency has secured the cooperation of large telecommunications companies, including AT&T, MCI and Sprint, in its efforts to eavesdrop without warrants on international calls by suspected terrorists, according to seven telecommunications executives.
Er, note that's "cooperation" without court oversight (ie., a warrant). I wonder what else the phone companies are giving away.
