Once upon a time, long before Apple and the FBI

Once upon a time, long before Apple and the FBI…one of America’s spy agencies asked a telephone company to cooperate on a classified project that involved unspecified surveillance of private customers.

The company was Qwest and the agency was the NSA–the National Security Agency. The phone companies have long cooperated with U.S. intelligence agencies on secret programs that earn billions of dollars in contracts. But this time was different. This time, then Qwest-CEO Joe Nacchio says, the government didn’t have the appropriate warrants or legal authority.

Sunday on Full Measure, find out what happened when Nacchio bucked the powerful spy agency and see what it portends for Apple’s circumstances.

Also on this week’s broadcast: how programs allowing travel with emotional support pets can be abused. Joce Sterman shows what happened when she tried to get a stuffed animal “certifed.”

If you missed our program last week: we reported on America’s southern border and showed stunning surveillance video of Mexican drug smugglers defeating the border fence. They drive over it, climb over it, cut through it and tunnel under it. In some  places, there’s no fence at all.
