gah…the fbi and the patriot act.
One FBI e-mail from 2003 complains that the Office of Intelligence Policy and Review (OIPR) “should be embarrassed that the FBI has used this valuable tool to fight terrorism exactly ZERO times.”
The e-mail goes on: “The inability of FBI investigators to use this seemingly effective tool has had a direct and clearly adverse impact on our terrorism cases. While radical militant librarians kick us around, true terrorists benefit from OIPR’s failure to let us use the tools given to us.”
