>The only reasoning I can see here is that the DOJ and other US agencies don't want to have to go to the time and effort or dealing with foreign governments

Which raises the question that this was a fishing expedition and that if the real details of the investigation were to be made public, it would sound alarm bells in various friendly governments and also alert the subject(s) of the investigation to the investigation... It is this adverse consequences angle along with the blind belief in the supremacy of US law that probably goes far to explaining why the DoJ haven't explored other legal options.
