Remember the case of the assassination of the Lebanese politician Hariri. The only suspicious evidence pointing to the resistance movement were SMS messages. The very same signals intercepted and probably falsified by the same entities.

The comments filter won't let me post the URL but it's from today's Guardian.

RT, please update this article to reflect the report from Glenn Greenwald that Snowden is not the source of the Independent's story.

It's a critically important development that dramatically changes the story.

it's crucial for power elite to tap/intercept everything and everyone possible (see IngoSwans's Secrets of power)

Lot of strange opinions here - as if ALL countries subject to terrorist attacks (ie. Russia, France etc.) don't operate their own covert operations. Beware of opening Pandora's Box my friends - it has the habit of biting back !

The U.S. government uses the CIA to do Industrial and spying on the fashion design design Industry for the Corporate entities that are inbed with the government. Worse still they intercept all communications made by European businesses to under cut and win contract bids all over the world. Thus espionage is only one sector of the CIAs arm, which are like tenticles of an Octopus.

Yet these people claim to be the most enlightened, liberal and tolerant folks on the planet. They are that 'tolerant' you get jailed for being intolerant on the internet. And now, here comes this all... I hate these hypocrites.

just search for British Bases in Cyprus and Signals Intelligence in google and this provides a good description of what is happening.
