hmm.. Let me get this straight. You are acusing the Telcos for cooperating
with the NSA just becasuse NSA happens to have one guy in the
stadardsgroup? If this is what you build your article on then I dont see
that It is justified in any way.

If you with protocols or in any other way can show that their in the
meeting or outside of the meetings have been a more or less specific
cooperation between the Telcos and the NSA then you might have a point.

I would give you the advice of not being so trigger happy or else ppl will
start question your bases and what your motives are.

I like what you are doing altogheter but please stay focused. 

Best regards,

articles? That dont bring so much respect in my eyes.)
