    and everywhere February 29 2004 One true spy story tells us more about the murky world of modern espionage than all the novels of Ian Fleming John le Carre and Len Deighton Here is such a story A few years ago the Chinese government grew tired of buying its artillery pieces from Britain we make the best and offered a large lump sum and royalties if we would teach them how to manufacture the guns themselves The deal was done and the British experts went out to a weapons factory in northern China to teach their Chinese counterparts the necessary skills One of the experts was a metallurgist On his first leave back in Britain he was approached by an officer of the Secret Intelligence Service SIS Read the full article How Britain and the US keep watch on the world February 27 2004 From the National Security Agency s imposing headquarters at Fort Meade Maryland ringed by a double chain fence topped by barbed wire with strands of electrified wire between them America bugs the world Nothing politically or militarily significant whether mentioned in a telephone call in a conversation in the office of the secretary general of the United Nations Kofi Annan or in a company fax or e mail escapes its attention Its computers measured in acres occupied by them rather than simple figures vacuum the entire electromagnetic spectrum homing in on key words which may suggest something of interest to NSA customers is being conveyed Read the full article The spooks are untouchable February 1 2004 The Hutton inquiry has confirmed what we all should have guessed Britain s secret intelligence services are untouchable It does not matter how badly wrong they were on Iraq and how often they have got things wrong in the past They will continue to go from strength to strength because as Lord Hutton realised they are in bed with the government and a major power in the land Lord Hutton s narrow terms of reference did not allow him to examine the intelligence services role in making the case for war and the accuracy of the dodgy dossier This was he said beyond my remit Read the full article The big secret of espionage is that spying doesn t work January 16 2004 On the face of it spying should be easy You go out into the world and try to uncover dangers that threaten your nation You recruit agents bribe and blackmail people in the know put all this into a report give it a reliability assessment and then hope that it makes its way to someone with the power to act on it It s a sexy well paid job certainly not nine to five with a reasonable pension and like the mafia secret recognition from those in the know There are downsides lots of moral dilemmas the shame of using people bitter bureaucratic infighting and the constant nagging doubt about whether it makes any difference to the
