ECHELON: Follow-up Links & 60 Minutes

With all the recent interest in the ECHELON global
surveillance system, some of you may appreciate a short
background note and some follow-up links on the topic.

ECHELON is operated jointly by five spy organizations under
the umbrella of the 1948 UKUSA (pronounced you-koo-za)
signals intelligence (SIGNET) agreement.

The five SIGNET agencies are the NSA in America, Canada's
Communications Security Establishment (CSE), the UK's
Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ),
Australia's Defense Signals Directorate (DSD) and New

The NSA is the senior member and calls virtually all the

60 Minutes:

On February 27 (Sunday) the CBS show 60 Minutes has
scheduled a segment on ECHELON in which Canadian ex-
spy and author Mike Frost reveals that then UK Prime
Minister Thatcher asked Canada's CSE spooks to spy on
two of her cabinet Ministers via the ECHELON system.

Also, Margaret Newsham
an ex-employee of Lockheed Martin and important player in
the development of the ECHELON system will be featured in
the segment.
