Skype audio and video chats, widely regarded as resistant to interception thanks to encryption, can be wiretapped by American intelligence agencies, according to a new report in The Guardian. The report appears to contradict claims by Microsoft that they have not provided the contents of Skype communications to the government.

In a story published Thursday, based on documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, The Guardian offers some detail about extensive cooperation between the FBI, the National Security Agency, and Microsoft to enable government access to user communications via the intelligence tool known as PRISM. That cooperation included, according to the leaked NSA documents, enabling access to e-mails and chats, the SkyDrive cloud storage service, and Skype audio and video calls.

    In the decade before 011 the U.S. had 2,000 people in HUMINT. There was no Cold War anymore lol and we must cut the budget to fluff up domestic giveaways.
