Dublin. Eire - The discovery of a 60-year long Irish Police phone tapping op has been hailed as the world's longest and most successful undetected snoop Dublin Police Commissioner Seamus O'Shergar said today.
Masterminded by the Garda Special Investigation Unit the covert operation saw cops bug every single phone call to and from Irish police stations since the Great Potato Blight Saga of 1953.
Without a soul finding out about it, begorrah.
"To be sure we've outwitted the CIA, the FBI and now the NSA," O'Shergar said, "not to mention that daft twat whistleblower Edward Snowden and his KGB pals."
So secret and well camouflaged was the mission that it even eluded detection by the Irish Police's Internal Affairs Department which conducts corruption probes about itself and other police jurisdictions.
"We could be up for the Nobel Piss Prize gold medal for covert surveillance," O'Shergar continued as he chuckled about 'a lot of red faces at Langley, Virginia, tonight.'
"No wonder they called it the President George Herbert Bush Center For Intelligence, heheh.
"You'd never believe the stuff we have on him, Dubya, Clinton and that Barry O'Barmy!"
Nancy Reagan must be shitting bricks.
