FBI SEEKS TO BUILD SPY NETWORK OF 15,000 INFORMANTS

ABC News is reporting the FBI is recruiting thousands of undercover informants to help the agency spy inside the United States.

According to a recent unclassified report to Congress, the FBI wants to build a network of more than 15,000 informants. ABC reports the aggressive push for more secret informants appears to be part of a new effort to grow its intelligence and counterterrorism efforts. Other recent proposals include expanding its collection and analysis of data on U.S. persons, retaining years' worth of Americans' phone records and increasing so-called "black bag" secret entry operations.
