Brief synopsis of Bing Translation of google cache link posted above by other ATS users.
Seems Mr. Wayne Madsen was the source of the information. He claims that 7 countries share a transatlantic fiber optic cable which is used by them to collect data from the Internet and mobile communications, which is then funneled to the NSA. The countries he claimed who 'help' in this data collection are UK, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands (Nederland - aka Holland to some 'older Americans), France, Spain and Italy.
Whether Wayne is believable or not, and whether this is true, I don't know but wouldn't be surprised. All I can think now is that the participating countries (if this is true) will probably act shocked or deny it like they did earlier when it was leaked that USA had those rendition locations secreted in several foreign countries.
