While Americans were busying snatching up the last items on their Christmas shopping lists, the U.S. Senate was one step closer to protecting various cellphone/wireless carriers who allegely collaborated with the US Goverment in their illegal phonetap/spy program.  They are passing legislature that will protect these companies from any further legal action.  The greenlight not only extends to wiretapping of phone services but also internet connections.  Here’s what they had to say: “The language is crafted broadly enough to shield not only traditional telephone companies and Internet service providers, but e-mail providers, search engines, and instant-messaging services too. And the legal shield would apply not only to corporate cooperation with programs run by the National Security Agency, but also any activities at the CIA, the Defense Department, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the State Department, the Treasury Department, Homeland Security and other intelligence-related organizations.”  To read the full story about this invasion of your privacy read HERE.
