CIA Used Snoopware to Track Zarqawi

An excerpt from a book published this week called "Sabotage" by Rowan Scarborough reveals how the CIA tracked down and killed Al Qaeda's top guy in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, last year. They did it with, among other things, secret e-mail snoopware they installed on Iraqi Internet cafe PCs that allowed agency spooks in the U.S. to read terrorists' e-mails AS THEY WERE BEING TYPED. Working with other intelligence organizations, they were also able to follow terrorists around by zeroing in on their cell phones.

The Microsoft "Word" program does
exactly the same thing.

Just type "I think this program is spying on me" and see what happens.
