They must be referring to echelon. What's interesting
is that ABC news is saying that they have echolon
like capabilities in the Continental US. 

This is much rumoured but always denied and probably
technically illegal.

Hogwash.  The US laws prevent only the US Agency from spying on it's
citizens.  There is nothing that prevents the other Echelon partners (I
beleive they are Austrailia, Britian, and New Zealand) from doing the
spying and sharing the results.
