Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Tyranny 101: US government forced Yahoo to comply with the #NSA’s, unconstitutional, surveillance program

Yahoo officials refused to hand over the data of its users to the NSA. The case was then taken to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Yahoo's court challenge failed and the company ultimately handed over the data to the spy agency.

“The released documents underscore how we had to fight every step of the way to challenge the US government’s surveillance efforts,” Yahoo general counsel Ron Bell said in a blog post.  PressTV

A judge with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on Thursday declassified documents showing the US government threatened to fine Yahoo! $225,000 per day over the company’s refusal to grant the National Security Agency access to user data. The papers reveal the internet giant filed legal complaints challenging the spy agency’s requests as unconstitutional, but was eventually coerced into granting access while keeping secret the government’s activities. To discuss this latest NSA revelation and its implication, RT’s Manila Chan is joined by Derek Khanna, a columnist and Yale Law School Fellow.
