Spying on Tony Blair

Has the United States cheated in its "special relationship?" In an interview with ABC News, a former communications intercept operator says he read a file on Tony Blair's private life while assigned to a secret NSA facility in Fort Gordon, Georgia, between 2003 and 2007. While it's common practice for intelligence agencies to collect information on foreign leaders, the U.S. and Britain have a long-standing pact against it. "If it is true that we maintained a file on Blair, it would represent a huge breach of the agreement we have with the Brits," a former CIA official told ABC News. Though the NSA maintains that it obeyed the law, the agency’s inspector general is investigating the allegations.
