Last week I read a Dutch book, published in 2006; no masterpiece but better than expected.
Maybe the most interesting to add here is that journalist Wim van de Pol exposed that, at that time, the Netherlands wasn’t only the largest phone tapper in the world relatively but in absolute sense (more taps in total than the much larger Germany, UK or US)!
What Van de Pol leaves out of his book are the illegal massive taps by intelligence agencies. These can´t be used in a court of law, but that won´t stop the spies...
And if these are taken into account, the total number of (illegal) taps in the USA are of course much higher than in the Netherlands.
Also interesting is that Van de Pol references Travis Russel – “Signaling system #7” (1998), which shows that phones (including mobile phones) are used to listen to anything that´s said around a phone (when the phones are supposedly turned off).
Wim van de Pol – “Onder de tap
” (2006) – in Dutch: https://www.stelling.nl/kleintje/editie ... uli-415/jj
When I read at the story about this book on stelling.nl, I found an even more interesting story.
In 2001, after 9/11 was staged, the following information got some media attention, although I don´t really see that spying through phones is directly related to 9/11 (what about those phone calls from the flying planes?)...

In 2001 the Israeli companies AMDOCS and Comverse Infosys were suspected of spying on the American police. AMDOCS makes the bills for most of the American telephone companies. Comverse Infosys supplies the American government, with automatic tapping equipment. In 2001 it became clear that Comverse Infosys created a backdoor so they could tap in on the telephone information.
The investigation was simply stopped (while the spying has continued): http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/spyring2.html
