Dirty Rotten Access: CIA pays AT&T for data

Dirty Rotten Access: CIA pays AT&T for data
Nov 11, 2013 | RT America

The CIA is paying AT&T more than $10 million a year to assist with its overseas counterterrorism investigations by handing over call data without a subpoena or court order, according to a new article by the New York Times. Also this week, the Silk Road, the online, underground market that the FBI raided and shut down four weeks ago, is back up and running. Silk Road is notorious for selling illegal goods like drugs and guns by using the online currency BitCoin, but a new posting says that Silk Road is also used to raise money for charities. RT's Meghan Lopez talks to Ladar Levison, founder of former email encryption service Lavabit, about these topics, his new encryption service called Dark Mail Alliance and more in this week's Tech Report.
