Ma Bell, Big Brother, what's the damn difference?

From The N.Y. Times, Sunday 12/16/07
"...But the battle is really about something much bigger. At stake is the federal government’s extensive but uneasy partnership with industry to conduct a wide range of secret surveillance operations in fighting terrorism and crime. The N.S.A.’s reliance on telecommunications companies is broader and deeper than ever before, according to government and industry officials, yet that alliance is strained by legal worries and the fear of public exposure."
Wasn't it supposed to be just fer fighting terr'ists that they wanted to violate that inconvenient fourth amendment? What the hell does the N.S.A. have to do with fighting crime? Notice how that word (crime) is just slipped past you in the article like it's a given? We've always been at war with Eastasia.
Once again, the slope gets oilier.
