Moron Murdoch

I've been giving some thought overnight to the Murdoch "NotW" scandal which has now spread to his flagship UK paper The Sun, and the recent revelations of Rebekah Brooks cozying up to Scotland Yard, which included getting advance warning of the original police investigation into phone hacking.
Not for nothing, but Murdoch's empire is structured rather...interestingly. His UK newspaper assets are held by a corporation known as News International, which is, in turn, owned by Newscorp., an American corporation. Rupert Murdoch himself is an American citizen (naturalized in 1985.)
If the allegations that the News International scandal reaches into the English national government, doesn't that mean that Murdoch is immediately under threat of investigation by the FBI and the CIA  under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act?
