                     Spying on the Spies
                     by Niall McKay

                     A Washington DC civil liberties organization will
                     send a detailed report on the National Security
                     Agency's top-secret spying network to members of
                     Congress later this week. 

                     The report, Echelon: America's Spy in the Sky,
                     details the known history and workings of the
                     agency's global electronic surveillance system.
                     The system is reportedly able to intercept,
                     record, and translate any electronic
                     communication -- such as telephone, data,
                     cellular, fax, email, telex -- sent throughout
                     the world.
