The American government has somehow managed to sign deals with fibre companies from abroad which allowed it to spy on other nations. It turned out that during months of private talks, the FBI lawyers, along with the departments of Defense, Justice and Homeland Security, demanded that one Asian company maintain an internal corporate cell of US citizens with government clearances. The demand included ensuring that surveillance requests got fulfilled quickly and confidentially.
The deal was dubbed a “Network Security Agreement”, got signed a decade ago by Global Crossing and became a model for other deals since September 2003. Although the agreements don’t officially authorize spying, they still make sure that when the American government agencies demand access to the massive amounts of information flowing via their networks, the organizations should have systems in place to provide it.
So, the foreign firms are actually forced into the deal because American spooks have the power to order the FCC to forbid them cable licenses. According to media reports, in deals involving a foreign entity, the FCC has held up approval for many months while the team of lawyers developed security agreements which went beyond what was required under the legislation governing electronic eavesdropping. For instance, the security agreement for Global Crossing – an organization whose fibre-optic network connected over two dozen nations and 4 continents – required the entity to have a “Network Operations Centre” on American soil and could be visited by American officials.
Press reports confirmed that all surveillance requests had to be handled by American citizens screened by the authorities and sworn to secrecy. In the meantime, firm’s executives and directors weren’t allowed to know the information being shared.

|This is a fact mentioned in the jargon of the NSA/CIA white-paper of 2001-2012 Global Cyber domination when it mentions overseas collaboration and partnerships,what is not mentioned in the article is that during that period of time the American govt also leased many communication satellites including MOD (Arianes skynet)aswell,what better way to spy on and keep tabs on your overseas partners,as with all things American there is a price to be paid for getting into bed with them.What the Americans least expected was that in spite of their plan free thinkers like Bill Binney and the disillusioned like Bradley Manning would make known their agenda publicly and allow the plebiscites to know of their Machiavellian plans.|

|this is old news people have known this for years all countries spy on each other or their citizens why does everyone get so bent out of shape when it is america doing it the only difference between america spying and lets say china spying is america has the attitude "yeah we do it deal with it"|
|all telephone companies that want to be able to have calls made to the US or from the US have to route all calls through an NSA switch.|
the switch is usually in that country.
this has been like that for many many years.
if they won't let them have calls routed through the switch, then they don't get a connection to the states.
for sure they are not the only one that does it, and certain other countries do even worse...
thats how they monitor calls with a computer to listen for specific words and phrases, and if they are detected, its then given to an analyst to listen. otherwise, rarely is someone physically and actually listening.
but even the phone company can listen in on calls.
we did it to verify quality and that the circuits function. (a mobile network)
