billing and directory assistance for 90% of the phone companies in the U.S., and were able to perform "traffic analysis" to determine any ''patterns" in communications. Their main computer systems are located in Israel, and they (along with Comverse Infosys) were fingered for selling their telephone records on the sly, putting a definite crimp on certain law enforcement agencies. Comverse Infosys - They were the primary source provider of computer equipment to the Feds which, in turn, was used for wiretapping. Stated differently, they were responsible for the installation of automatic tapping equipment into practically every phone across the USA. What this vitally important factor means is that Israel was able to hear nearly every7 phone conversation in America - at their discretion -and the taps could not be detected because they were automatically integrated into the telecom system itself. How can I conclude that the nation of Israel had access to this source of information? Well, during his four-part series for Fox News, Carl Cameron reported, "Comverse works closely with the Israeli government; and under special programs gets reimbursed for up to 50% of its research and development costs by the Israeli Ministry of Industry & Trade." As already noted, Comverse Infosys was caught illegally selling telephone data, and it should also be added that they have the capability to build back doors into their phone systems. Thus, anyone with the technology to do so could eavesdrop instantly on a targeted phone conversation whether this access was authorized or unauthorized.
