Saved by the "Bell"

If only we'd known it was this easy. . .no need to push back against "W" and his illegal wiretaps - we just needed to allow his past business experience catch up with him and let nature take it's course. He has no time or interest in paying those pesky phone bills. . .

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. In one office alone, unpaid costs for wiretaps from one phone company totaled $66,000.

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 and intelligence 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.



Can you hear me NOW? When da shrub tried to grab the light, you could have heard a pin drop when he found himself left in the dark again. Here's a job more befitting of his intelligence:

LOL! I'm not sure if Bush could do that job, it looks a little too advanced for him. Maybe with six months job training...

Let's see... non-esential eminent domain has ended private property rights, the patriot act has ended personal liberty, and the DOJ wants to deny the 2nd Amendment to D.C. residents. I know, Bush can just end private business by nationalizing all the telephone companies.

He won't have any bill to pay then, and what harm can one more minor change make to this great nation of ours?
