ECHELON: THE MOST SECRET SPY SYSTEM PART 1 OF 3
The United States, England, Canada, Australia and New Zealand all have laws that prevent them from spying on their own citizens. But that doesn't mean that other nations can't do this work instead...
ECHELON: THE MOST SECRET SPY SYSTEM reveals the details of the information sharing system developed by these five nations to get around the prohibitions on internal surveillance. Highly placed insiders, including National Security Agency Director Gen. Mike Hayden, Secretary of State Colin Powell and Representative Peter Gross, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, talk about how the system works, why it was put in place and the results it has generated, while a different perspective is offered by people like Jim Bamford, the author of Body of Secrets and Wayne Madsen of the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
