FBI Papers Indicate Intelligence Violations
Secret Surveillance Lacked Oversight

	The FBI has conducted clandestine surveillance on some U.S.
residents for as long as 18 months at a time without proper paperwork or
oversight, according to previously classified documents to be released
today.

Records turned over as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit also
indicate that the FBI has investigated hundreds of potential violations
related to its use of secret surveillance operations, which have been
stepped up dramatically since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks but are
largely hidden from public view.
