US Government Assisted Iranian Govt Mobile Wiretaps [Telecom]

This is "interestingly odd" IMO.

In today's (28-SEP-2010) Slashdot: " " ... a story on Ars Technica highlighting how the US government's " drive for security back doors has enabled the Iranian government " to spy on its citizens. "For instance, TKTK was lambasted last " year for selling telecom equipment to Iran that included the " ability to wiretap mobile phones at will. Lost in that uproar was " the fact that sophisticated wiretapping capabilities became " standard issue for technology thanks to the US government's " CALEA rules that require all phone systems, and now broadband " systems, to include these capabilities.
