What the Spymasters are willing to tell us, what they want us to think...
It's Echelon, and it's coming for you!
Europeans call it Echelon. They know about it. They fear it. But we Ami's don't fear it. Thank goodness, Echelon is managed by the United States! So, no, Echelon doesn't target the U.S. Something else is aimed at us. It has a different name. What is it? Tell me, and we will both know.
You may have heard the term Echelon before, but I don't think even we in the FSBVG community really know what it means.

US spies likely to move out of 'cushy' Europe
AS SECRETARY of state, Colin Powell is expected to recommend an overhaul of America's dealings abroad, including the diversion of spies from comfortable, European postings to more arduous tasks in countries such as Iraq, writes Matthew Campbell.
Powell, who succeeded Madeleine Albright, the first female occupant of the post, declined to be drawn into a discussion of foreign policy under the Bush administration. "There's only one foreign secretary at a time," he told The Sunday Times.
However, the reorganisation of intelligence-gathering is one of a series of recommendations he made with Condoleezza Rice, who is expected to become national security adviser, in a lengthy report for a Washington think tank.
"It is a mistaken notion to believe that the break-up of the Soviet bloc has rendered intelligence collection less necessary," says the report, Equipped for the Future, which is considered a blueprint for a shake-up of foreign policy management under George W Bush.
"Meeting today's priorities may require a redirected and more targeted deployment of intelligence officers outside of west European democracies, where intelligence reporting and State Department reporting are most likely to overlap."
Europe may welcome the prospect of spies being diverted elsewhere: relations with Washington have been strained by reports of American intelligence using a communications network called Echelon to eavesdrop on European businesses.
