+ - France Runs Vast NSA-Like Electronic Spying Operation Of Their Own

Submitted by Freshly Exhumed
Freshly Exhumed (105597) writes "France runs a vast electronic surveillance operation, intercepting and stocking data from citizens' phone and internet activity, using similar methods to the US National Security Agency's Prism programme exposed by Edward Snowden, Le Monde has reported. An investigation by the French daily (en français) found that the DGSE, France's external intelligence agency, had spied on the French public's phone calls, emails and internet activity. The agency intercepted signals from computers and phones in France as well as between France and other countries, looking not so much at content but to create a map of "who is talking to whom", the paper said."
