Another massive domestic spying program revealed dwarfs NSA program

Download Podcast

The Office of National Drug Control Policy has been coordinating a massive domestic spying program involving the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the telecomm giant AT&T. In 1987 AT&T made a decision to store massive amounts of communication data not just on its customers but all calls that pass through their switches. In 2007, former President George W. Bush activated “Project Hemisphere” and the DEA and AT&T have been working together ever since to mine the data.

According to Daily Tech, “an estimated 4 billion records (one call sometimes generates multiple records) are estimated to be added to the federally funded AT&T databases a day; over a trillion records are estimated to be added yearly. And possibly tens of trillions of records --- mostly from law-abiding Americans -- may reside in the agency's carefully maintained databases.”

South Carolina received $295 million dollars in 2010 to help keep struggling homeowners from losing their homes in foreclosure. However, it has only used about $98 million of the money it got from the federal government due mostly to those who qualify for assistance not knowing the program even exists.
