this might be of interest for Politech readers. There is rising
anger in Germany after the draft report of the Echelon
committee of the European Parliament was published.
Especially the Green Party in the German Government, but
as well lots of people from other parties don´t like the whole
thing at all. On the other hand, as far as I remember, the
station to close was snooping on the U.K. since the end of
the cold war - so maybe this was meant to be nice to the
Brits so they will be nice to the U.S. and don´t give in to the
demands of their European partners, that is: Be European!
No Comment so far from the German government.

Bad Aibling Station to close

FORT BELVOIR, VA. May 31, 2001 - The U.S. Forces
stationed at Bad Aibling Station (BAS), Germany, will be
consolidated and realigned according to an announcement
today. The Department of Defense made the decision at the
request of the Director of the National Security Agency/Chief,
Central Security Service (NSA/CSS). Current operations at
the U.S. Government facility at Bad Aibling will cease on
Sept. 30, 2002, with return of the facility to the German
Government to be completed by fiscal year 2003. The U.S.
personnel currently stationed at BAS will gradually be
reassigned to other operational units. Bad Aibling Station is
an integral part of the Department of Defense
communications network and provides support to U.S. and
allied interests. There has been a U.S. presence in Bad
Aibling since 1947. The U.S. Army took command of the
station in 1952. In 1971, the station became a predominately
civilian operation managed by NSA. In 1972, its name was
changed to the current Bad Aibling Station. In 1994, BAS
management was transferred from NSA to the U.S. Army
Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM). Bad Aibling
Station is located in the village of Mietraching and is
approximately two miles from the center of the town of Bad
Aibling, Germany. Bad Aibling is a Bavarian resort town
located about 35 miles southeast of Munich.
