[registrars] Springtime for Spies and Cops

"Connected", dated Thursday, 10 June.   The top of each page has the 
notation "connected@telegraph.co.uk".

The story on page 4 and 5, title above, deals with a U.S. spy operation at 
Menwith Hill in Yorkshire.  Called "Echelon", the operation has set up 
International User Requirements for Interception (IUR).  It is a massive 
system for interception telecommunications messages, voice and 
Internet.  Automated systems watch for key words to permit interception of 
specific subjects.

Perhaps the story is on the Web.  I'm copying The Telegraph to see what can
