Someone *IS* recording the content of the calls!Submitted by dwalters on Tue, 06/11/2013 - 20:11
We've heard over and over and over that the NSA is only collecting "metadata." However, it seems like it has been implied (maybe directly said) that if there is suspicion of deviant activity, then the NSA (or the concerned 3-letter agency) can later go back and listen to the actual content of the calls. Therefore, someone is also collecting the content of every call made whether foreign or domestic.
My question is: Who is storing this data?
Is the NSA program in question only analyzing the "metadata" while, also, actually storing the content for later use if needed?
Nonetheless, some entity (entities) has (have) created a database of the content of every call being made in the united States.
