Israel tasked with spying on Americans’ – PressTV, Iran 11/16/08

In the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, the White House launched a massive program to spy on millions of Americans, best-selling author James Bamford has claimed in his latest book, The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America…..
Verint and Narus, the two Israeli corporations, are ‘super intrusive — conducting mass surveillance on both international and domestic communications 24/7,’ and sifting traffic at ‘key Internet gateways’ around the US, Bamford claims.
“The greatest potential beneficiaries of this marriage between the Israeli eavesdroppers and America’s increasingly centralized telecom grid are Israel’s intelligence agencies,” Bamford writes.  According to Electronic Intifada, there has yet to be a congressional oversight of the Israeli intelligence-linked firms operating in the heart of the US security establishment.
