FBI conducts clandestine surveillance of citizens

"WASHINGTON, Oct 24: Previously classified documents released on Monday show that the FBI has conducted clandestine surveillance on US citizens and legal residents for as long as 18 months at a time without proper paperwork or oversight.

Some of the violations found in the documents included Improper searches and seizures of bank records. Violation of bank privacy statutes. Improper collection of e-mails after warrants had expired.

FBI officials, however, say that most of the violations were simply administrative errors."
