I have a different question, mostly directed to the likes of AT&T and
GlobalCrossing that came out with this fabulous explanation -

	(1) Did you get an order from DHS to do that or were you just asked?
	(2) How did DHS managed to not know about such order?
	(3) Are you going to bend over and do everything DHS politely asks
	    you to do?

Thanks,
Alex
