CIA Bugged Princess Diana So the Brits Will Bug You

We now have word that the United State's Intelligence Service had bugged Princess Diana's phone the night of her fatal car crash.

You may be wondering why your tax dollars should be spent bugging the phone of the ex-wife of the Prince of Wales. Good question. This article gives the answer in as oblique, mild and non-alarmist a tone as possible. It says, "In a move that raises fresh questions over transatlantic agreements on intelligence-sharing, the surveillance arm of the US has admitted listening to her conversations as she stayed at the Ritz hotel, but failed to notify MI6."

Now here is what that really means: Laws in each country forbid the home-grown intelligence services from spying on their own citizens without probable cause. So what happens is that our boys spy on their citizens, their boys spy on ours, then they share information. We really need laws regulating this exchange of information.

In the meantime, hey British MI6, you can kiss my colonial caboose, and tell the CIA I said so!

Well, we all know that Bush has never done anything to threaten our privacy. And of course he put an end to the Brits spying on us and exchanging information with our spies.
