"In 2002 President George W. Bush signed an executive order authorizing the National Security Agency to monitor telephone conversations and Internet transactions of American citizens without a court warrant."
I can easily be bothered and it doesnt take much to do so. The above statement that started out chapter 18 was one of those things that instantly bothered me while reading this book. The fact that something like this can happen without the publics knowledge amazes me. I just think that this is such an invasion of privacy and feel like it violates our rights and it seems like the goverenment can do whatever they want whenever they please. This just really got me fired up that they did this. But what really made me mad was when AT&T was questioned in court about the whole thing and they wouldnt specifically say that they were asked to do so by the goverenment, instead they kept saying that "We follow the law." The government didnt even want them to admit to it. This is what really struck me and bothered me!
