SPYs: Our Data Base Is Bigger Than Your Data Base

DEA wants in on the deals.

… Who uses a phone anymore, for drug deals. That is so 80’s Maimi Vice era stuff.

Federal and local drug officials reportedly have subpoena access to an AT&T database of phone calls whose size dwarfs any collection of data done by the National Security Agency.

The New York Times reports Monday that a counternarcotics program known as The Hemisphere Project involves the government paying AT&T to place its employees in drug-fighting units made up of both Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents and local detectives. The AT&T employees then supply law enforcement officials with all the phone data going back to 1987.

I hope they have a valid search warrant.

The never ending war on drugs, that can’t be won. They like it that way.
