Why wait?

In a similar vein, a new PRISM slide was released by the Guardian this
morning:

Doesn't specifically say private fiber - just "fiber cables and
infrastructure". May just refer to fiber to/from/within complying
company infrastructure, ofc, not necessarily anything else.

They also apparently have a web 2.0 compliant dashboard with a catchy
name and pop-ups with big numbers in: Boundless Informant.

Speaking from the other side of the pond it's interesting to see where
this is going. GCHQ (the UK NSA equivalent) are being asked stern
questions by the government about their involvement and if they've
been asking the NSA for UK citizens' data (since they're not allowed
to collect it themselves).

Cheers,
