The New NSA

These four ad parodies created in 2006 take aim at the Administration's Warrantless Wiretapping Program, and the willful compliance of telecom giants like AT&T and Verizon, so the logo and layout parody AT&Ts rebranding effort. Much has developed over this program since these were produced, including the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, and the pressure from these telecom companies to have the administration retroactively rewrite the law so that the telecom companies do not get sued by their clients. With Senate testimony from previous DOJ officials (including the revelation that even former AG John Ashcroft felt the program went too far), and all the secrecy surrounding the program, it is certain that the Administration was illegally spying on American citizens; to what extent and for how long is the only question.
