ATT: 950% profit on GI phone calls

Incredible, simply incredible.

It costs 2 cents a minute to connect to Iraq.
ATT charges 21 cents a minute and has a monopoly in doing so.
That's a 950% profit, taken out of the pockets of GIs.
GIs with families often are so poor, they're on food stamps.

Should ATT change their slogan to "Reach Out and Rip Off Someone"?
