The American secret service was bugging Princess Diana's telephone conversations without the approval of the British security services on the night she died, according to the most comprehensive report on her death, to be published this week.
Among extraordinary details due to emerge in the report by former Metropolitan police commissioner Lord Stevens is the revelation that the US security service was bugging her calls in the hours before she was killed in a car crash in Paris.

Good, maybe this will push the Brits over the edge so they become french.... and we can take their advice as serious as we take french advice.
Why would we be spying on Princess Diana's phone conversations?
I read this on Drudge and as odd as we were easdroppin we were listening the day she died....gives me the creeps given Clinton was in office.
That's an interesting point.
Diana's phone or the hotel's phone she was using while she was there?
Guess we'll have to wait until they release the report this week.
Then why wouldn't we have bugged Dodi's phone, and not Diana's?
They are still investigating this?!!
it was in 1997 according to the article
read the article...says she was not pregnant, was not gonna marry Dodi and nothing nefarious in her death...The driver was over drunk and drove dangerously it the articles jest
This is going to further inflame Dodi Fayed's father.
I'll never forget the icy chill emanating from the Queen herself when she appeared on television following Diana's death. It chilled me to the core.
Interesting that the article refers to the "American secret service," the "US security service," and the "surveillance arm of the US," but fails to mention any US agency by name. Also they wrote M15 for MI5, which is just lazy. Anyhoo, Diana was no longer royal, wasn't performing any official business for the UK government, and wasn't in UK territory at the time she died. Does that make her fair game for espionage? Perhaps. But I've got no idea what information she could possibly have had. Maybe we were actually spying on the Fayeds? That would be just as strange.
Sounds like Bill Clinton wanted to get into Diana's panties.
As for Diana.....maybe they were afraid of the same pillow talk that got Marilyn in trouble.... ;)
The thought of that is ewwww . I hope she wouldn't have given him a glance. Thats just a nasty thought. However I wouldn't put it past him either.
I don't know why..but with our very stupid electorate and very biased media..they will somehow blame this on President Bush..even though he was only Governor of Texas at the time..nothing surprises me today..
Because Diana may have been talking to him on her phone or talking about him on her phone. Plus the article doesn't say the U.S. wasn't bugging Dodi's phone, too. At least I did not catch that. Correct me if it does.
Hell, I wouldn't have put it past Diana either....
Maybe not. Just the thought of bill wanting to get in her panties is not pleasant thought. I would hope she would have had better taste but then again she married Prince Charles and I think he is a dead ringer for Cindy Sheehan so who knows. I don't understand these kind of people.
amen that ..man I remember that look.....Cold as a Hank Williams Sr. song. But also I remember Clinton speaking to the nation right after TWA 800 was blown up....I'll never forget that look ,ever.
Your scenario makes the most sense by far.
Diana was working for MI5, attempting to infiltrate the Fayed network. Same as Paul McCartney - that's why he is now Sir Paul McCartney.
My question is...did a US judge order the wire-tap, or was this accomplished by presidenial directive (Clinton)?
There may be something here that we are all missing.
Why did Clinton order the bugging of Diana's phone, hmmm? Why doesn't the NY run this story every day for six months like it did with Abu Ghraib? What did Hillary know, and when did she know it?
Clinton pried, Diana died. Love it.
Maybe he was just trying to see if he could learn something that would help him get Diana into the sack.
Clinton....not surprised....probably wanted to hook up with her!
No, it was more about the other guy she was sleeping with, a billionaire in the US.
