Verizon Gives Phone Records To Big Brother

Here is the standard e-mail response sent out by Verizon today to customers upset that their phone records were turned over to the National Security Agency (NSA):

"Dear Sir,

Verizon appreciates that the media reports about the possibility that the NSA is able to analyze local call data records is causing concern. Please be assured that Verizon places the highest value on protecting the privacy of our customers.

Anything to do with the NSA is highly classified, so I can't comment on whether or not the news article causing concern is even accurate. But I can say that, to the extent that we cooperate with government authorities, we are confident that we are complying with all applicable statutes.
