    Help Pick Biggest Cover-Ups of 2005
    WND's annual quest for year's most under-reported stories
    Posted: December 14, 2005

    © 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

    Attention, WND newshounds! As it does every year, WorldNetDaily.com is inviting readers to submit their candidates for the most "spiked" stories of the year in Operation Spike!

    While most news organizations present year-end retrospective replays of what they consider to have been the top news stories of the previous 12 months, WND's editors have always found it more newsworthy to publish a compilation of the important stories most ignored by the establishment press.

    E-mail your nominations to spikes@wnd.com.

    In the 1990s the Echelon Project was used by NSA to listen into almost every single call, or e-mail sent from the US or anywhere for that matter. Does anybody else remember the controversy? It was one of the big reasons we ended up with an Intel wall.

    Echelon was a software that monitor all the calls and would flag for direct listening conversations, or e-mails, pretty much any digital communication with certain tagwords.

    Now we have Bush specifically listening to few conversations, it is the story of a lifetime. Echelon was reported in the 90s, but the controversy was soon forgotten. Now that this new listening controversy has come to light, they are missing the connotations of their poster-boy Clinton. Clinton authorized this, and with no court orders. A far more egregious and totally unsupervised, unlike Bush's with FISC and the Senate both constantly briefed on the project, by any other portion of the government.

    It is logical that this should have been reported at the same time as similar 'abuses' by the same branch of government (since the press was ignoring the oversight of the FISC and Senate Intel Committee.)
