Could They Come Up With a Lamer Excuse?

I have recently written about the problems which still dog the FBI translation effort. As reported by the BBC, there are some really curious details to the situation.
Another problem for the FBI is limited computer storage capacity.

In some cases, potentially crucial surveillance material is being automatically deleted before it can be reviewed, the audit found.
This is truly mind-boggling. Our industrial data centers maintain terrabytes upon terrabytes of data, yet the FBI can not get enough storage for its needs. Are we to believe that the FBI can not afford a file swapping portal the size of one of the numerous on-line portals where users can swap audio and video files?
