As I relay in my 1993 600 page documentary book The Alien Presence: The Evidence For Government Contact With Alien Life Forms, the National Security Agency (NSA) receives three quarters of all money allotted to intelligence agencies. That leaves the CIA, DIA, FBI, Navel Intelligence, FEMA, NRO, DARPA, the Air Force, and a host of others left with the remaining quarter... The NSA US Court of Justice case hearings also revealed that UFOs were involved with the agencies most intricate and delicate investigative engagements. See Grail Vines from November and December 1999 for details on the Echelon espionage network.

NSA´s Echelon Gave Authorities 3 Month Warning Of Attacks

from German Paper Frankfuter Allgemeine Zeitung

By Ned Stafford


FRANKFURT, Germany - U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies received warning signals at

least three months ago that Middle Eastern terrorists were planning to hijack commercial

aircraft to use as weapons to attack important symbols of American and Israeli culture,

according to a story in Germany's daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ).


The FAZ, quoting unnamed German intelligence sources, said that the Echelon spy network

was being used to collect information about the terrorist threats, and that U.K. intelligence

services apparently also had advance warning. The FAZ, one of Germany's most respected

dailies, said that even as far back as six months ago western and near-east press services were

receiving information that such attacks were being planned.


Within the American intelligence community, the warnings were taken seriously and

surveillance intensified, the FAZ said. However, there was disagreement on how such terrorist

attacks could be prevented, the newspaper said.


Echelon is said to be a vast information collection system capable of monitoring all the

electronic communications in the world. It is thought to be operated by the U.S., the U.K.,

Canada, Australia and New Zealand. No government agency has ever confirmed or denied its

existence. However, an EU committee that investigated Echelon for more than a year just last

week reported its belief that the system does exist.


The EU committee said that Echelon sucks up electronic transmissions "like a vacuum cleaner,"

using keyword search techniques to sift through enormous amounts of data.


The FAZ, in its news story, described the system as covering the whole world with 120

satellites. The newspaper also said Israeli intelligence had collected information indicated that

Arab terrorist groups planned to hijack planes in Europe to use as weapons to attack targets in

Tel Aviv and other coastal cities in Israel. Because of increasing concerns of plane hijackings,

Israel has tested a new x-ray machine at the Tel Aviv airport, the FAZ said. The machine

capable of detecting all known explosive elements, even if only in small quantities, the

newspaper said. The FAZ said that German intelligence fears that in coming days planes will be

hijacked in Europe and the Near East, and that there is no sure way to protect against it.
