Seems you don't have to worry so much about Uncle Sam listening in on your pizza orders after all. Turns out tons of federal wire taps were cut -- because Uncle Sam didn't pay his phone bills.
The Washington Post reports phone companies held up the information when the Justice Department failed to pay half of one-thousand bills -- including one for $66,000.
The FBI says they didn't lose any information. They got it when they paid their bills -- and late fees.
In a "post-9/11 world," let's hope Washington doesn't get a bill due on 9/12. (WaPo)
