The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Wiring Up The Big Brother Machine...And Fighting It':
Reviewer Koos van den Hout wrote:
Mark Klein was there when the network of telecommunication giant AT&T was 'enhanced' with fiber taps into major links, with the duplicated data going into a secret room under NSA (national security agency) control. The now famous room 641A at Folsom Street in San Francisco. In this book he describes the process of getting involved in placing the taps and what he did after this to bring this spying on Americans to the light, resulting in a lawsuit against AT&T by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. A long and frustrating process with media ignoring this news and possible pressure to not publish the story. An interesting book to read, but at the same time very disconcerting to interpret, as the practices described in the book are very probably still active today and the US law is very clear on spying on foreigners by the NSA: go ahead, enjoy.
