The once-secret program that is collecting bulk records of Americans’ domestic phone calls is gathering a large amount of landline data but has struggled to take in cellphone information, according to officials.
The Washington Post is a company town newsletter, and its town has prospered munificently over the last 13 years from all the black budget spending in the Global War of Terror. So, the WaPo focuses on all the American calls left for Washingtonians to spy upon.
The agency is unable to keep pace with the explosion in cellphone use, officials say, contradicting popular perceptions that the government is sweeping up virtually all domestic phone data.
So, get back to work, all you spooks within the Washington Post home delivery zone! If you need more taxpayer dollars to help you spy on the last 70% of American calls, just let us know and we'll put out the word.
