Your Calls: Tracked by the NSA

This morning, USA Today published a major cover story reporting that the "National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans." If you use AT&T, Verizon or BellSouth, your personal and business phone records may have been turned over to the NSA.

This isn't eavesdropping on suspected terrorists. This is a massive search and seizure of your personal information. Every phone call you make -- across town or across the country -- is being tracked by the NSA. And guess what? President Bush defends this with his usual double-speak. At a hastily arranged White House event this morning, Bush stated, "We are not mining or trolling through the personal lives of millions of Americans." However, that is exactly what the Bush administration is doing. As USA Today reports, "The [NSA] today is considered expert in the practice of 'data mining.'"

Congress needs to investigate this government intrusion...immediately. Call on the House and Senate today to issue subpoenas and expose the extent of this intrusion:

Senator Arlen Specter has already indicated that he's willing to call on the heads of the companies involved to appear before the Justice Committee. But that's not enough. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez and former AG John Ashcroft need to be brought before Congress. And, unlike in past charades, they need to testify under oath.

We'll deliver the petition to the Republican and Democratic leadership of the House and the Senate.

Tens of millions of innocent Americans are affected by this warrantless surveillance. Both you and I could be included. I urge you to join Democracy for America in the call for a full investigation into this latest Bush administration intrusion on our privacy.

Thank you,

Tom Hughes
Executive Director
