Police State IV

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Echelon is a global communications surveillance system which allows the US government to listen in on international phone calls, e-mails, and faxes – all without a warrant or court order. Echelon was designed to eavesdrop primarily on non-military targets: businesses, political organizations, other governments and individuals.

From New Zealand author, Nicky Hager’s 1996 book Secret Power.
