from The Globe and Mail
Several days ago, the U.K. Guardian and Washington Post newspapers reported on U.S. surveillance programs involving the massive intercept of electronic and voice communication data. The most notable of these, called PRISM, is described by the Guardian as allowing U.S. intelligence officials (and specifically the National Security Agency or NSA) to collect material including search history, the content of e-mails, file transfers and live chats. The focus is on foreign communications that take place outside of the U.S. but transit through the systems of U.S. internet firms.
