FBI ISN'T DOING IT'S JOB WITH MORE THAN ONE AGENT

Reader comment on item: The FBI Fumbles [on Gamal Abdel-Hafiz]

Submitted by HILDA E. DAVIS (United States), Jan 7, 2008 at 00:22

I've learned over the past 30 years that the FBI doesn't always comprehend what someone is trying to explain to them about the criminal act taking place. They take time to investigate the individual that's trying to lay the case in their laps, and do nothing with what's given to them. Ultimately, leaving me no choice but to take the information to the newspaper editor and two reporters, giving them two boxes of evidence of the criminal acts taking place by individuals who ultimately filed a 64 million dollar bankruptcy, and were on the FBI's most wanted list for a number of years until they were caught just before the story was to appear on "America's most Wanted".

Ultimately, they were convicted, served time in federal prison, their accountant committed suicide, a Va. Senator was reprimanded for his involvement, with the founder's mother also serving time, as well as other employees of the company. The years they went un-found, are not a credit to the FBI. Had they listened, and comprehended what these individuals were doing, the whole situation could have been taken care of quickly. It was basically a FBI screw-up.

Then we go on to several other screw ups. When we found evidence of cigarette smuggling, money laundering, and funneling money to terrorist group Hezbollah and contacted the closest FBI office and gave them the names of those involved they sounded quite interested. On the second contact with their office, it was obvious they had no interest and didn't even come to see what we had in hand (evidence of the crimes). We then learned that when one of the two brothers involved had been caught earlier for smuggling cigarettes from N. C. to Michigan, he faked a heart attack, was taken to the hospital and cut a deal which included his brother with the FBI, therefore, they had no interest, althought there were other crimes involved.

After being able to get ICE and NC SBI and NCIS involved in the investigation, which wasn't easy, they felt the case was big enought to call in the FBI as part of their investigation, and the FBI put a stop to their work to protect the two individuals involved. We were able to get them to pick up the one brother whom we had gotten them to verify that he was in the U.S. illegally. ICE told us all the paper work (evidence) would travel with him to Atlanta. It didn't, had it gotten to the prosecutor and INS Judge this man would not have been allowed a VD (voluntary departure) from our country. He would have been charged with his crimes under the RICO Act and been convicted and served time, instead, as a result of the FBI removing the evidence, he was allow a pat on the hand, and an easy out that will at some point allow the criminal to return to our country.

Then I learned the FBI went to him while he was being held prisoner and tried to hire him as an Arabic translator to go to work for our government. He didn't want to go back to the middle east, and gave his nieces name, and would you believe they contacted her and she went to work for our government, endangering our men overseas, as well as those of us here at home. She was a big part of their cigarette smuggling, money laundering, and funneling money to terrorist group Hezbollah. The FBI had this evidence and yet they did what I've stated.

I have no respect for the FBI at this point. I know that the FBI, like any other agency, has good, bad and indifferent people in their agencies. But to allow those that make bad deals to remain out their and continue their acts is wrong and needs to be cleaned up quickly. CHANGES NEED TO BE MADE IN THE FBI QUICKLY. What kind of agent cuts a deal with a far easterner that's committed a crime, supplies them names he knows have already been given to another agent by his cohort, and that agent goes to our U.S. Attorney and requires him to sign a "Non-disclosure" before he gives them the names they are already working???? They sure aren't very bright, are they? Why didn't that agent contact the U.S.Attorney's office and see if they already had the names and if they were already working the case before cutting his deal? If I'd been the agent, that's what I would have done.

WAKE UP AMERICA, IT'S NOT JUST THE ILLEGALS WE HAVE TO WATCH. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE WATCHING THE FBI, AS THINGS SURE AREN'T WHAT THEY SHOULD BE WITH THE AGENCY.
