The Guardian said:
The American secret service was bugging Princess Diana's telephone conversations without the approval of the British security services on the night she died, according to the most comprehensive report on her death, to be published this week.

Among extraordinary details due to emerge in the report by former Metropolitan police commissioner Lord Stevens is the revelation that the US security service was bugging her calls in the hours before she was killed in a car crash in Paris.

In a move that raises fresh questions over transatlantic agreements on intelligence-sharing, the surveillance arm of the US has admitted listening to her conversations as she stayed at the Ritz hotel, but failed to notify MI6. Stevens is understood to have been assured that the 39 classified documents detailing Diana's final conversations did not reveal anything sinister or contain material that might help explain her death.

I'm still waiting on more news sources to come out, confirming the validity of the story.

I like how the article claims she may have been pregnant. Suspicious... Maybe her hubby got mad and KILLED HER! DAAHHHHHHH!

This is why people are in favor of abortion :D

I see a much bigger problem in industrial espionage employed probably every country that has the power to do so.

For example ... ever wonder why the russian Tupolev 144 looks incredibly similar to the Concorde?

Just conspiracies and gossip rumor crap....

...sad that what was once reserved for tabloids in the check-out lane at grocery stores has made it's way to major network news. Then again, maybe Bat-boy really is helping Marines hunt Osama in caves...

"Ok, so Clinton was bugging Diana while Atta was plotting 9/11 and libs are upset we're bugging terrorists. What a strange world we live in."

i think this sums it up well

Clinton was scouting future prospects. Unfortunately for him, Di dying limited his options to Monica and the 97 year-old White House chef.

To my knowledge it was a joint effort. And the 144 is faster and bigger.

Anyway to the story: very refreshing to see you posting on different subjects, Heather. And I'm not really too sure what to think about us spying on Diana. It doesn't seem like we would have much use for her phone conversations, a waste of our tax dollars. And the action also undermines Britain's intelligence agencies: we don't really have much right to do this stuff in other countries, that's MI6's job.
