Since the 25th of April, Verizon has been sharing all its phone call data with the NSA by virtue of a secret court order that authorizes the following information to be handed over on an ongoing daily basis.:
It is however silent on the contents of the conversation itself. This order is very unusual given that it covers all calls and not of a specific person. Furthermore, the order also specifies that Verizon is prohibited from disclosing the fact that it was giving out this information or the existence of such an order. Only through a UK newspaper, the Guardian, was the existence and contents of the order revealed.
