FBI wiretaps dropped due to unpaid bills

WASHINGTON - Telephone companies have cut off FBI wiretaps used to eavesdrop on suspected criminals because of the bureau's repeated failures to pay phone bills on time.

A Justice Department audit released Thursday blamed the lost connections on the FBI's lax oversight of money used in undercover investigations. Poor supervision of the program also allowed one agent to steal $25,000, the audit said.

In at least one case, a wiretap used in a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act investigation "was halted due to untimely payment," the audit found. FISA wiretaps are used in the government's most sensitive and secretive criminal investigations, and allow eavesdropping on suspected terrorists or spies.

"We also found that late payments have resulted in telecommunications carriers actually disconnecting phone lines established to deliver surveillance results to the FBI, resulting in lost evidence," according to the audit by Inspector General Glenn A. Fine.


More than half of 990 bills to pay for telecommunication surveillance in five unidentified FBI field offices were not paid on time, the report shows. In one office alone, unpaid costs for wiretaps from one phone company totaled $66,000

The entire thing is concocted to give a relief to those who are in fear of being wire tapped. Very clever if you ask me.

Re: Telephone Companies Cut FBI wiretaps
Typical of our incompetent government. I think it's hysterical! The wire taps are probably only partially legal and wholly unnecessary anyway. I'm delighted these clowns cannot get their act together to pay for the circuits that deliver the info to the Government!

Fuck em!
