In an Ass-Backwards Way, Progress at the FBI

You Can't Make This Stuff Up ..

An audit by the Justice Departments Inspector General found that the FBI has yet to review more than 8,000 hours of audio wiretap recordings related to counterterrorism investigations. While the Inspector General, Glenn Fine, said none of the recordings are associated with high priority investigations, he went on to stress that the FBI has no assurance that they do not contain information that could be crucial for pursuing terrorists. Few were happy with the report.

It sounds very much like business as usual, said Lee Hamilton, the former cice chairman of the September 11 Commission, and business as usual is unacceptable.

The new revelations add to reports last September that the FBI had failed to translate "more than 120,000 hours of potentially valuable terrorism-related recordings."
