Not for the NSA. Indeed, voice has to be converted to data in order to go through the search algorithms, so it's actually a lot easier to just search data that doesn't have to first be converted.I know the answer in the voice network is yes but that's technically easier. On the ip network that would seem to be m uch more difficult.
