The CIA and Princess Diana

I'll be honest and say that the story of the inquiry into Diana's death really hasn't grabbed my interest. What good is it to know almost ten years later that the driver was drunk? Scotland Yard will issue its report tomorrow and one thing is very interesting--The CIA was likely tapping her telephone. Why was the CIA doing this to a seemingly innocuous figure like Diana? Well, probably because she had the audacity to campaign against the use of landmines. The US has had a gentleman's agreement not to spy on Britain since the end of World War 2. Of course, the NSA and CIA deny this, but this is likely going to cause embarrassment for the US intelligence community.
