Spy In The Machine | The Age. July 21st, 2012

National Security Inquiry

” At the time, the Attorney-General’s Department tried to prevent public discussion of the issue. When The Age made a freedom-of-information application for a key document, it was provided almost totally blacked out in order to prevent, according to the department, ”premature unnecessary debate”. (The Saturday Age has since obtained an uncensored version and it confirms what the industry has long been saying – the agencies want the telcos to retain the online history of every Australian.) “

 

 

“Of the 24,000 people who voted in an online Fairfax poll asking if the government should force telcos to store telephone and internet data, 96 per cent were opposed.”

Australia is home to more data- interception per capita, than anywhere else….

Australians are 18 times more likely to be subject to a wiretap warrant than an American citizen.
