Records turned over as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit also indicate that the FBI has investigated hundreds of potential violations related to its use of secret surveillance operations, which have been stepped up dramatically since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks but are largely hidden from public view.

2. You must have missed the memo.
The Republic died December 12, 2000. Don't send flowers. They're needed for the planned victory parade in Tehran.
