“BT and Vodafone are among seven large telecoms firms which could face legal action under human rights law for colluding with British spy agency GCHQ and failing to protect customers' privacy rights.

Lawyers for the group Privacy International have written to the chief executives of the telecoms companies, which were identified last week by the German paper Suddeutsche Zeitung as collaborating with GCHQ's mass surveillance program, Tempora.”

Setting aside the pending legal issues for a moment, I asked myself, how exactly did Tempora do this? Apparently they tapped directly into the Undersea fiber Optic cables this means that they most likely deployed some fast - attack submarines, and combat, lets hope the bunch of Internet Traffic they collected is worth the storm of Legal, Equipment, and Labour fees they incurred.
