Bugging Diana

Clarice Feldman
The British papers have reported the Commission looking into Diana's death found that the U.S. secret service was bugging Diana's phone on the night she died. Mickey Kaus has the best explanation. The word "service" following "secret" in the report is in lower case, meaning intelligence service.

Kaus notes that we don't know which one of the branches of our intelligence service was involved but that Homeland Security has flat out denied it was the Secret Service. We don't know why Diana was judged an appropriate subject, and by whom, but Kaus notes that Forstmann (whom the princess was seeing at the time) was a big Republican contributor and it had been reported in 2000 that he was thinking of running against Hillary. He sarcastically says he thinks maybe the Clintons were afraid she was going to come out in favor of school choice.

Macsmind
  has more details on Forstmann
and Strata-Sphere, notes how odd it is that the Clinton administration had no problem bugging Diana's phone, but had a major problem listening in on Al Qaeda.

I expect that our intrepid press, zealous of  invasions of personal privacy, will soon get us some answers.

Update: NSA denies it was eavesdropping on Diana.
