the buried lede in all these stories is that cooperation agreements mean
Canadians can spy on US citizens (but are only ever asked about Canadians,
& Canadian pols only talk about protections for their citizens), US can spy
on Canadians (but are only asked about US, & US pols only talk about
protections for their citizens), etc., etc.--esp. for UK, NZ, and Aus-- &
share the info as they like. and "not spy on their own citizens" and (kind
of) tell the truth when they say it. or a half-truth that makes them feel
better and appears to comply with letter of the law.
