Episode Summary

EDIT
Wiretap Whistleblower
AIRED:
Should telecommunication companies receive retroactive immunity for their role in helping the government eavesdrop on American phone calls and e-mails? As the Congress and President Bush duel over the answer to that question, NOW on PBS interviews a whistleblower with exclusive insight into the role played by one of those companies. AT&T technician-turned-whistleblower Mark Klein tells David Brancaccio about the "secret room" set up by the National Security Agency inside his AT&T office in San Francisco. He also describes in remarkable detail -- with documents to back him up -- how wires were split and extra equipment was brought in to essentially suck up and store e-mails from all over the country. Klein claims this activity is a violation of the Fourth Amendment.moreless
