Mon May 22 2006 Whistleblower reveals Spy Room in court documents
secret room 5/26: AT&T accidentally leaks sensitive information involving the NSA lawsuit in 25-page legal brief.

An AT&T whistleblower has revealed that the National Security Agency installed “secret rooms” at AT&T facilities in various cities, including the facility on Folsom Street in San Francisco. Former AT&T technician Mark Klein is the star witness in a lawsuit against the telecommunications giant brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Statements by Klein reveal that AT&T has installed servers, routers and internet traffic-analysis software in the secret room. "I am presenting this information to facilitate the dismantling of this dangerous Orwellian project," Klein wrote in a statement.

Media Alliance, CODEPINK and others are calling for a "Day of Outrage Against the NSA, AT&T, Verizon” on May 24, 2006. The first of two events will be at noon at AT&T Park, during the Giants home game. The second demonstration will be at the AT&T building at 600 Folsom Street from 4-6 pm in San Francisco.
