USA: police collecting private phone data all around on "terrorism" pretext

It seems obvious that the Boston marathon false-flag attacks have mostly a purpose of experimenting with or directly implementing and reinforcing fascist control of US society. The dramatic militaristic curfew imposed on the Boston area was just one experimental element; another maybe more important and less visible is that, under such pretexts, the Gestapo-like National Security Administration (NSA) is collecting massive amounts of phone records, at least from Verizon, which is the main provider, using an old secret court order obtained under the Bush administration.

White House officials declined to comment on the report that the FBI was granted a court order in April that required Verizon to provide the National Security Agency with information about calls inside the U.S. and between the U.S. and other countries on a daily and “ongoing” basis.  

That law, updating the more than three-decade-old Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, lets intelligence agencies monitor the e-mail, Internet activity and phone calls of non-U.S. citizens reasonably believed to be located outside the U.S. and involved in terrorist activities or other crimes. Congress voted last year to extend it until the end of 2017. 

“We’ve been saying for over a decade that the law is incredibly broad and could be interpreted to allow something like this, but people didn’t believe it,” said Michelle Richardson, legislative counsel of the ACLU. “Now that there is hard proof, hopefully this will force Congress to take a look at it.”
