About those Phone Company Denials...

As you no doubt know by now, being a very well-informed news consumer, both Verizon and Bellsouth have more or less denied the USA Today story saying that the NSA has been secretly collecting their phone records.

USA Today appears to be sticking to the story, though the paper's statement seems to carefully avoid a total commitment to it, instead saying that the paper's "confident" in its reporting.

So now what?

Well, there's something about those denials that doesn't quite make sense.

UPDATE: And that argument dovetails rather nicely with this, wouldn't you say?

Now that Bush has given Negroponte Presidential authority to pardon those companies, they no longer need to deny the allegations.
