The British press are full up with stories of some American intelligence agency bugging Princess Diana, although this seems to have been only incidental to the bugging of Ted Forstmann. We know it's hard but try to follow along at home. Princess Di was dead long before 9/11 so this wasn't some War on Terrorism Bush administration paranoia. It was the Clinton administration spying on Forstmann. What exactly were they afraid Ted was telling Di? Anyone care to venture a guess?

American intelligence agencies were bugging Princess Diana's telephone over her relationship with a US billionaire, the Evening Standard has learned.
She was even forced to abandon a planned holiday with her sons in the US with tycoon Teddy Forstmann on advice from secret services, who passed on their concerns to their British counterparts.
Both US and British intelligence then forced Diana to change her plans to stay with Mr Forstmann in the summer of 1997, saying it was too "dangerous" to take her sons there.
