    Project Hemisphere, which was detailed in slides supplied to the New York Times, included access to phone logs dating back 26 years.

    (Credit: Declan McCullagh/CNET) U.S. law enforcement officials working on counternarcotics operations have had routine access to AT&T's enormous database of Americans' phone records dating back more than 25 years, according to a New York Times report.


    The Hemisphere Project involves a close relationship in which the government paid company employees to supply drug-enforcement officials with phone data dating back as far as 1987, The Times reported. The partnership, which began in 2007, is reportedly similar but separate from the National Security Agency's controversial data-collection programs revealed earlier this year.


    However, unlike the NSA's collection of phone logs, the data covered by Hemisphere is stored by the company with access granted via administrative subpoena. The database, which includes records on every call that passes through the company's network, not just AT&T customers, grows by 4 billion records a day.


    Details of the program were revealed in a 27-slide PowerPoint presentation provided to the newspaper by peace activist Drew Hendricks, who received the information in response to public information requests. The slides were marked "law enforcement sensitive" and indicate that the program was to be carried out in great secrecy.

    I'm needy.

    You never said hello back to me.

    This pretend interweb friendship we have is painful when you ignore me. :uscared:
