The United States government said no to an international telecommunications treaty over provisions added at the last minute that would broaden the scope of the United Nations to include the Internet.

Terry Kramer, the U.S. ambassador to the WCIT, announced that the U.S. would not sign the International Telecommunications Union treaty on Thursday as the WCIT was wrapping up after 12 days of discussions and negotiations.
