The daring US wiretapping operation carried out 400 feet underwater that helped steal Soviet secrets and end the Cold War

    Operation Ivy Bells was launched by the US in 1972 but details remain classified
    The daring wiretapping operation was conducted 400 feet underwater in the Sea of Okhotsk off Russia's east coast
    It allowed the US to uncover a goldmine of intelligence from the Soviet Union
    The wiretapping idea is believed to have shifted the Cold War in favor of the US
    America was able to receive Soviet intelligence for a decade until a former NSA employee leaked details of the operation for $35,000 in 1980
    A former US Navy diver said he believes the old-fashioned surveillance methods could still be happening today

It was the daring wiretapping operation conducted 400 feet underwater that helped the US uncover a goldmine of intelligence from the Soviet Union.

More than 40 years on, details of the surveillance mission Operation Ivy Bells, which launched back in 1972, still remains classified.

But one thing that is clear is that the information the US uncovered proved to be invaluable and helped lead to the end of the Cold War, according to investigative journalist Sherry Sontag who spent years interviewing the men responsible for the wiretapping for her book Blind Man's Bluff.
