FBI Wiretap Cut Off For Unpaid Bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A telephone company cut off an FBI international wiretap after the agency failed to pay its bill on time, according to a U.S. government audit released on Thursday.

The Justice Department's inspector general faulted the FBI for poor handling of money used in undercover investigations, which it said made the agency vulnerable to theft and mishandled invoices.

It cited the case in which a wiretap under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which governs electronic spying in terrorism and intelligence cases, was disrupted due to an overdue bill.

The FISA program, denounced by critics as overly intrusive and unconstitutional, is up for renewal in Congress.

Lie to millions of customers as you help Bush spy on them?

Ignore a late payment?
