UK and NSA

This headline news on AT&T & Yahoo online is remarkable as an example of “ignorance of corporate history.” Actually it is ignorance of any history. Why this was deemed such a news-breaking story is what is astounding. If one had read THE PUZZLE PALACE in the mid 1980s, it explains a lot of the connection of the UK to the USA ever since the revolution and in spite of War of 1812. We have always been allies and ever more so in the clandestine world of global intelligence from the cold war era to the present. The history of the NSA is given in detail in that publication also. The author made all the rounds on the talk shows of that era. For the news piece referenced today, go to:

Conspiracy – again?

Art - cover The Doc
This book cover will no longer be able to be used, as the contract for the e-book has been terminated. If some of you, fans, had tried recently to buy it on Amazon, from either my author page or from Amazon books, it is no longer there. That is because the ebook was the publisher’s property. I am not supposed to use the cover for promotion as the cover art is the publisher’s property. I understand that the the publisher even “owns” the edited version, even though I have it copyrighted in my name. That’s not a huge problem as I can re-edit it myself. Am currently seeking a print publisher. The Doc story may be available, again, soon, with a different title and in an edited version.
And that brings up the conspiracy thriller premise of the story. The questions still persist, I suppose, in the somewhat current news of the day. Regarding acts, actions, operations, hacking private personal accounts and data systems, NSA business, security v. privacy …..
If it’s true, is it a conspiracy?
If it’s legal, is it a conspiracy?
If government does it, is it a conspiracy?
