Nice story, but there seems to be no evidence to back it up. And look at where it is "published", the notorious 2600 hacker's zine. It lacks credibility.

This is one of the most worrying stories I've read in many years.
While I was around Changi jetty, on the bridge across the stream taking pictures of the bumboats ... a police man from the immigration post came and demanded I stop taking pictures of the place. This was on Sunday morning.

It's well documented fact that the USA and others eavsedrop world wide. Several high ranking CIA types have not only confirmed the use of "Echelon" but a recent EU comission has published some pretty daming reports on it's use to give the USA advantages in commercial dealings worldwide.

IS this source any less credible than the mainstream media who actively censor the truth and frequently publish outright lies?

Remember the publicity stunts they used to pull about 10-12 years ago? I still wouldn't trust a story like this from 2600.

Oh yah, their latest update : "We'd like to think that every story reported on in the mainstream media is questioned thoroughly, although we all know this is rarely the case. In the end, whether it's 2600 or Time, the decision on whether there is truth in a report lies with the reader."

No further evidence, nothing. On dpreview, some Denver residents claim that no such event happened. Go figure.
