Cisco Systems Inc's chief executive officer has written a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama urging him to curtail government surveillance after evidence circulated showing the U.S. National Security Agency had intercepted Cisco equipment, a company spokesman said on Sunday.
The letter follows the circulation of pictures on the Internet showing NSA staff opening boxes of Cisco gear, the Financial Times reported on Sunday. "There have been allegations that the NSA has intercepted IT equipment in transit from manufacturers to customers to help monitor and gain information on surveillance targets," the paper wrote.
They have been doing this ROUTINELY for years.
Western Australian police do it. Australian Federal Police do it.
Police have "informal" people going through stuff without warrents. Serving special forces on leave - based at SAS Campbell Barracks - go work in postal services and get up to all sorts of mischief. Not to mention all the other "places" they get put into. Totally INFORMAL and part of their "training".
Still no one talking about Israel.
