Today, I decided to discover just how Verizon Wireless would respond to my inquiry about their releasing my private phone records to the Federal Government, in spite of the fact I’m not being investigated for a crime, nor do they (the Fed) have a warrant for such information (remember that whole Constitution thing?)
- Verizon forced to hand over telephone data – full court ruling
- Verizon Breaks Silence on Top-Secret Surveillance of Its Customers
- Randy Milch, Verizon Executive Vice President and General Counsel sent the following note to Verizon employees
Here is the transcript of that brief but revealing chat…

In all of this, my disgust and turmoil is not necessarily aimed at Verizon Wireless, but rather the governmental power to make it so. I thought there was checks and balances that kept that from occurring.
