So I read the newbie guide to detecting if the NSA was monitoring your traffic. It says to traceroute to and see what routers your traffic is passing through. John Bartas has the 411 on how to do this.

The magic string you’re looking for is If it’s present immediately above or below a entry, then — by Klein’s allegations — our packets are being copied into room 641A, and from there, illegally, to the NSA. Of course, if Marcus is correct and AT&T has nstalled these secret rooms all around the country, then any entry in your route is a bad sign.

I tried this and found that my traffic is being monitored by the NSA! [] [] []

But, using the Tor web proxy none of my traffic traverses an AT&T link.  Horay for anonymity.
