A judge ruled there was no Nazi theme and the story wasn’t in the public interest..

tmThe New York Times reports AT&T charges the CIA $10 million a year for access to metadata about calls by suspected terrorists overseas. AT&T performs searches for specific phone numbers in its database, which includes all calls that transit AT&T’s line whether an AT&T customer or not. The system is not under warrant since it focuses on overseas calls. If one end of a call is located in the US, AT&T masks that metadata. AT&T voluntarily provides the data as a paid service.
