Berrygate: Are all phone calls recorded and accessible to the US government ?

 Are all telephone calls recorded and accessible to the US government?
BURNETT: Tim, is there any way, obviously, there is a voice mail they can try to get the phone companies to give that up at this point. It's not a voice mail. It's just a conversation. There's no way they actually can find out what happened, right, unless she tells them?
CLEMENTE: "No, there is a way. We certainly have ways in national security investigations to find out exactly what was said in that conversation. It's not necessarily something that the FBI is going to want to present in court, but it may help lead the investigation and/or lead to questioning of her. We certainly can find that out.
BURNETT: "So they can actually get that? People are saying, look, that is incredible.
CLEMENTE: "No, welcome to America. All of that stuff is being captured as we speak whether we know it or like it or not."
Mockingbird. Noun. Species well known for its characteristic repeating of other bird songs in a loud and mocking fashion. Also the title of a piece by famed rap artiste Marshall Mathers (stage name Eminem). This work is truly deserving of the title, as it makes a mock of the genre itself along with his previous work.

"'In fact, the UAE is exercising its sovereign right and is asking for exactly the same regulatory compliance - and with the same principles of judicial and regulatory oversight - that Blackberry grants the US and other governments and nothing more,' [UAE Ambassador to the US Yousef Al] Otaiba said. 'Importantly, the UAE requires the same compliance as the US for the very same reasons: to protect national security and to assist in law enforcement.'"
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Orwell's 1984 is now called Blackberry. Yeah we know, Obama adorns his Blackberry.
