Oh yes, these are the people I want to trust with unlimited access to my communications, a bunch of FBI offices that can’t even pay their wiretapping bills on time. If the FBI has troubles figuring out which accounts bills are being paid from, how can we expect them to even know if they’re watching the right people? And even if they are tapping the right phones, can they be trusted to keep that information safe once they have it? I guess I’ll just have to add this to the long list of reasons why wholesale wiretapping by the government is a bad idea. Item #43: Can’t pay the bills.
