Interesting. CIA and NSA supposedly are not allowed to spy/collect data on American citizens living in America.

Yep, perhaps it’s about time to repeal the Patriot Act.

Don’t they just get the FBI to do it for them?

Actually they let the Brits do it. We in turn spy on their citizens. Then we just exchange the information.

“Don’t they just get the FBI to do it for them?”

That has been Echelon for decades. Homeland Security was apparently added to the FBI mandates.

That is Project Echelon and has been going on for decades.

Someday, somehow, the feral government will turn up a piece of useful information. A stopped clock is right twice a day, and even the blind squirrel occasionally trips over a nut.

It’s called Echelon and British and US governments deny it exists

They've been denying it exists since they came to our campus to recruit foreign language speakers for it in 1984.
