From AP, with thanks to Dennis Hale:
WASHINGTON – Despite major increases in money and personnel, the FBI is still failing to translate many al-Qaida surveillance recordings in a timely manner and faces a giant backlog of untranslated material from terrorism and espionage investigations, a new Justice Department audit shows.
The report released Monday by Glenn A. Fine, the department’s inspector general, found more than one-third of al-Qaida intercepts authorized by a secret federal court were not reviewed within 12 hours of collection, as required by FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Hmmm. Maybe they should have hired all the Jews and other non-Muslims who have been turned down under curious circumstances for translator’s jobs over the last couple of years.
