The war on terrorism:
What is "Camolin"?

A little-noticed report in Der Spiegel in November 2004 (13.11.04) revealed the existence of an intelligence operation called "Camolin" involving agencies from the USA, Germany, France, UK, Canada and Australia.

The operation set up in February 2003 is charged with tracking down Al-Qaeda suspects in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Its headquarters is in a military barracks close to Paris where regular meetings of the agencies take place backed up by a secure communications system. The role of the European agencies is to supply dossiers on suspects which the CIA then acts on.

The Der Speigel article stated the Germany was represented by the Federal Intelligence Agency and the Office for the Protection of the Constitution.
