A contract uncovered by the New York Times shows that the C.I.A. is paying AT&T more than $10 million per year to access the company’s phone records for aid in counterterrorism efforts. The CIA, which is forbidden by law from from spying on Americans, is accessing phone records of foreigners under a voluntary contract with AT&T. Some of the records represent calls into or out of the U.S., raising the possibility that the agency is indeed engaged in domestic spying; AT&T claims, however, it “masks” the records of Americans.
