The Narus device is fascinating in itself, I'm sure they something much bigger now feeding directly to the datastores in Utah

Who else gets a retroactive grant of immunity?

he Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a class-action lawsuit against AT&T on January 31, 2006, accusing the telecommunication company of violating the law and the privacy of its customers by collaborating with the National Security Agency (NSA) in a massive, illegal program to wiretap and data-mine Americans' communications. On July 20, 2006, a federal judge denied the government's and AT&T's motions to dismiss the case, chiefly on the ground of the States Secrets Privilege, allowing the lawsuit to go forward. On August 15, 2007, the case was heard by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and was dismissed on December 29, 2011 based on a retroactive grant of immunity by Congress for telecommunications companies that cooperated with the government. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the case.[7] A different case by the EFF was filed on September 18, 2008, titled Jewel v. NSA.

The only real defense and way to prevent being illegally spied upon is to choose to not participate by shunning the communications methods and taking steps to make your traffic harder to monitor when you do use them. 

It is really unfortunate, but too many of the Sheeple just don't care as long as they are fed their daily dose of distraction.
