FCC says NSA illegal spying with AT&T is OK
Well, it's just like watching dominoes fall, isn't it? First the Feds blocked the Justice Department from investigating the NSA, and now the FCC is saying it also won't investigate AT&T and the NSA because of "national security issues." FCC Commissioner Kevin Martin sent this letter (PDF) to Rep. Ed Markey explaining:
I know that all the members of this Commission take very seriously our charge to faithfully implement the nation's laws, including our authority to investigate potential violations of the Communications Act. In this case, however, the classified nature of the NSA's activities makes us unable to investigate the alleged violations discussed in your letter at this time.
