NSA surveillance: EFF lawsuit; new white paper by ACLU

EFF has sued AT&T over its alleged participation in the NSA's 
surveillance scheme: 


BTW I think the ACLU's map (below) is intended to be more fanciful than 
based on any confirmed participation by U.S. telecom or Internet companies.

The closest we've come to actual confirmation was a paragraph buried in 
the middle of a Los Angeles Times article last month about AT&T, 
mirrored here and cited in the EFF suit: 

Am I missing something?

Subject: New NSA Spying Map and White Paper

Politechicals may be interested in a new ACLU white paper and
interactive map detailing  what is known and suspected about how the
NSA's illegal spying on Americans occurs and where the interceptions
are likely taking place..  The white paper is entitled "Eavesdropping
101: What Can the NSA Do?" It looks at the probable connections that
   the NSA has made to the U.S. civilian communications
infrastructure.  The map shows how the NSA's "surveillance
octopus"  likely entangles the country. We believe it is the
first effort to visually illustrate what is happening.

You can find both the white paper and the map at>
