I have a question about the usage of the phrase "in detail". Most dictionary definition give example usages of "in detail" like these:
He explained the theory in detail.
They discussed the matter in detail.
They talked about the issues in detail.
, where the contexts appear to be production of information.
But, then there is this wiki article:
U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon said that he had been briefed by the special agent in charge of the Portland FBI field office and said that federal, state, and local law enforcement were monitoring the situation in detail.
"Monitoring a situation" is not quite the same type of context as "explain the theory" or "discuss a matter" or "talk about issues". So, is the usage in the wikipedia article wrong?
