The idea that the United States was spying on Princess Diana on the night that she died in Paris makes for a "sensational accusation," as NBC's Keith Miller put it--but does not appear to have much substance. At the time of her death, she was a leading activist against landmines, a protest movement whose telephone calls may have been bugged by the National Security Agency. She was probably to the other end of some of the eavesdropping, CBS' Sheila MacVicar suggested.
Now why the NSA should be spying on opponents of landmines--that is a story worth covering.
