Echelon is a system used by the United States National Security Agency (NSA) to intercept and process international communications passing via
communications satellites. It is one part of a global surveillance systems that is now over 50 years old. Other parts of the same system intercept
messages from the Internet, from undersea cables, from radio transmissions, from secret equipment installed inside embassies, or use orbiting
satellites to monitor signals anywhere on the earth's surface. The system includes stations run by Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, in
addition to those operated by the United States. Although some Australian and British stations do the same job as America's Echelon sites, they are
not necessarily called "Echelon" stations. But they all form part of the same integrated global network using the same equipment and methods to
extract information and intelligence illicitly from millions of messages every day, all over the world.

The problem as I see it is private communication does not exist.
A legal wiretap requires a court order; even privileged exchanges between lawyer and client are intercepted.
But what really concerns me is that National security legislation, such as the patriot act, allow domestic intelligence gathered in this manner to be
used as evidence in court.
This undermines the constitutional right to privacy, 1984 was prophetic.
I believe we now stand at a critical crossroad in the future of free society.
The gathering of this information must be allowed.
But how the information is handled and disseminated must be carefully regulated and controlled, to insure the preservation of civil liberties.
Even the abilities of FEMA to suspend civil and constitutional rights in the event of a National emergency should be carefully examined, within that
legislation there exists NO TIMETABLE or guidelines for re-instituting the constitution!
The lessons of McCarthyism and Hitler must not be forgotten.
I am not overly paranoid about this, but there is a strong pattern emerging, and I am concerned.
