AT&T, Group Challenge U.S. Spy Program

"SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - AT&T Inc. (T) and an Internet advocacy group are waging in federal court a privacy battle that could expose the reach of the Bush administration's secretive domestic wiretapping program.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation said it obtained documents from a former AT&T technician showing that the National Security Agency is capable of monitoring all communications on AT&T's network.

'It appears the NSA is capable of conducting what amounts to vacuum-cleaner surveillance of all the data crossing the Internet, whether that be people's e-mail, Web surfing or any other data,' whistle-blower Mark Klein, who worked for the company for 22 years, said in a statement released by his lawyers."
