  •  Well so far, the only claim proved false..... (4+ / 0-)

    ...which was that NC/NI  hacked the phones of US 9/11 victims.

    The FBI IIRC found no evidence of that.  And we have yet to see the civil suits that were to be brought by UK citizen in US court whose phones were hacked while they were on US soil discussed in press last spring by Mark Lewis.

    One reason to assume that it was not happening is that phone hacking is a far more serious crime in the US than it is in England/Wales.  And until 2009, noone had been on trial for the crime --the royal phone hackers pleaded guilty.
