The FBI runs your phone; will it run the Internet?

My co-worker Lee Tien is currently making a great argument (based on a paper by Stuart Baker) that the primary governmental body regulating telecommunications in this country is not the FCC but rather the FBI. They set the standards for technological innovation, they set the standars for privacy, they get to listen in on any calls they want.

Will they get the same power over the Internet via VOIP?
