More details on apparent NSA interception at AT&T

Salon.com has a new article on a room in an AT&T facility in Bridgeton, MO (a St. Louis suburb) that may be an NSA interception facility. The room is protected by a man trap and biometric security, and the AT&T employees who are permitted to enter it had to get Top Secret security clearances. The work orders for setting up a similar room in a San Francisco AT&T office, reported by former AT&T worker Mark Klein, came from Bridgeton.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has an ongoing class-action lawsuit against AT&T over its involvement in illegal NSA wiretapping.
