Wow, while im sure there is something like this inplace in Australia we never hear anything of the sort on our news at all. I couldnt imagine listening in to peoples conversation as a job, just think of all the uselss things you would have to listen in on.

Next time that you speak to someone on the phone, take some time out to say hello to Bob the NSA Guy, I'm told from a friend at the FBI that it really annoys them.
Wasn't that in some kind of movie that had Will Smith...Enemy of the State?

And in Deus Ex. The whole story was run by all of the major news networks/papers a decade ago; we're not talking about tinfoil hat territory, we're talking about mainstream news that's ten years old.

Google it, it's not hard to find info on it: project echelon

STEVE KROFT:The mission is to eavesdrop on enemies of the state: foreign countries, terrorist groups and drug cartels. But in the process, Echelon's computers capture virtually every electronic conversation around the world.....Mr. MIKE FROST (Former Spy): The entire world, the whole planet--covers everything. Echelon covers everything that's radiated worldwide at any given instant.

Understand that I just assume this to also include this thread on the forum, and every email I send, every IM session that I might engage in. At some point the archives of the internet will also be policed by Echelon, assuming that it isn't happening already. Doesn't matter, I've picked my side, it's not theirs, and they know. I can either try to reach out to those that would listen or just sit back and take it - the latter is behavior not befitting a Marine.
