Illegal Wiretaps?

Engineers Without Borders, a non-governmental organization operating in Afghanistan, released the following this evening:

EWB is charging that the CIA and other domestic agencies are illegally tapping telephone lines and email correspondence without appropriate FISA approval. ACLU lawyers have requested an immediate injunction against this illegal invasion of privacy of an outstanding U.S. based NGO. This is yet another systematic abuse of executive authority that has been typical of this administration, and we abhor this illegal behavior.

The Central Intelligence Agency had no comment on this allegation.
