And, of course, as the story gets bigger and bigger, we're now getting quotes from ex-government officials saying that even they are surprised at how comprehensive the surveillance appears to be.
“It looks from what I’ve seen to be larger than anything I thought we were doing,” says Paul Rosenzweig, author of a recent book, Cyber Warfare.I heard the same basic thing from another ex-government official, who didn't want to be named, who had some knowledge of these kinds of programs back at the beginning in the 2008/2009 timeframe -- saying that if what's being said is true, the program has greatly expanded from where it originated.
Rosenzweig should know.

But, he says, “I wasn’t read in on this.”
