EFF: AT&T forwards all Internet traffic into NSA

This is extremely troubling on principle; my opinion of AT&T has been modified from competent, to greedy and clueless, to greedy, clueless and evil. It's not socially responsible to keep giving these clowns my money...I really must start looking for an alternate provider.
'The evidence that we are filing supports our claim that AT&T is diverting Internet traffic into the hands of the NSA wholesale, in violation of federal wiretapping laws and the Fourth Amendment,' said EFF Staff Attorney Kevin Bankston.

'More than just threatening individuals' privacy, AT&T's apparent choice to give the government secret, direct access to millions of ordinary Americans' Internet communications is a threat to the Constitution itself. "
