not by NSA but by employees of British
: *   GCHQ, he was literally telling the truth.
[snip]
: *  
: *   According to a former special agent of the FBI, the you-spy-on-mine,
: *   I'll-spy-on-yours deal has been extended to other Western partners,
: *   particularly Canada and Australia. The British, with the help of
: *   sophisticated NSA computers, can bug just about anyone anywhere. The
: *   electronic search for subversives continues, particularly in the U.S.
: *  
: *   The NSA conceded precisely that point when the U.S. Justice Department
: *   investigated its wiretapping of American protesters during the Vietnam
: *   War.
: *  
: *   The NSA assured the Justice Department that the information was
: *   acquired only *incidentally* as part of a British GCHQ collection
: *   program.
: *  
: *   The "incidental" British exception has become the rule.
: *  
: *   To this day Congress does not realize that the British liaison officers
: *   at the NSA are still free to use American equipment to spy on American
: *   citizens. And, in fact, they are doing just that. Congress has been kept
: *   in the dark deliberately.
: *
: *   This is a fact, not a matter of conjecture
: *   or a conclusion based on anonymous sources.
: *  
: *   In the early 1980s, during the Reagan administration, one of the authors
: *   of this book submitted to the intelligence community a draft of a
: *   manuscript that briefly described the wiretap shell game and mentioned
: *   the secrecy provisions concerning British liaison relationships with
: *   the NSA have escaped congressional knowledge.
: *  
: *   The result was an uproar.
: *  
: *   The intelligence community insisted that all passages explaining the
: *   British wiretap program had to be censored and provided a list of
: *   specific deletions.
