Law Enforcement Tales

Some number of FBI wiretaps -- including at least one undertaken pursuant to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act investigation -- were recently halted. Because you're reading about it here, you know which multiple you should choice:

A. A new interpretation of applicable Supreme Court decisions;

B. The targets of the investigations were apprehended;

C. It was determined that too much collateral information was being collected, thus violating citizens' privacy rights;

D. The Department of Justice forgot to pay the fracking telephone bill.

Yes, you guessed it.
