privacy safeguards in light of NSA [1]call monitoring, and more recent
administration pushes for [2]ISP data-retention. As the article
discusses, though safeguards are already in place, they're easily
bypassed, based on older communication norms and don't take into account
any 'war-time necessity' arguments." From the article: "There's a crying

mirror a consensus among America's gadget-happy, cell-phone addicts whose
daily chats and text messages are grist for Echelon's computers."
