Secret Power, book on ECHELON system
Nicky Hager book on ECHELON system, "Secret Power"
... one of the chief sources of cultural paranoia is the everwidening rift between the beliefs of a people and their actual behavior, and the tacit assumption among these same people that this practice�this contradiction between idealism and practice�is a normal state of affairs.
LIONEL RUBINOFF, The Pornography of Power

I did a brief review of the book in post #6 on this thread:

It was first published in 1996 and so things have moved on massively since but it is nevertheless a real eye-opener about the extent to which elected politicians are kept in total ignorance of the real agenda. Even David Lange, the then Prime Minister thought that the construction of the Waihopai satellite station was to make up for being forcibly distanced from - in his fond (but false) beliefs - former US intelligence pooling following NZ's non-nuclear heresy. His own people assured him it was. It wasn't. It was to further integrate NZ into ECHELON and the head of the organisation responsible for running it was a US citizen PAID by the US, whose loyalties were first and foremost to the US - and the Prime Minister simply had no idea. Unbelievable really, but Lange says as much in his foreword to the book.

So what do you think the situation regarding global surveillance and a host of other SIS's activities is like now?

Rhetorical question that.
Peter Presland

".....there is something far worse than Nazism, and that is the hubris of the Anglo-American fraternities, whose routine is to incite indigenous monsters to war, and steer the pandemonium to further their imperial aims"
Guido Preparata. Preface to 'Conjuring Hitler'[size=12][size=12]
"Never believe anything until it has been officially denied"
Claud Cockburn

Interesting. Cheers for the book.

Nowadays? Better filters and semantic weighting. Higher capacity. New satellites. Perhaps semantic fields replacing keywords, nebulous concepts keyed rather than words. Real-time interfacing between discrete systems for holistic vision of threat arrays?
