Jihad in the Federal Bureau of Prisons

Reader comment on item: The U.S. Bureau of Prisons Explains Jihad

Submitted by Pauline A. Halacka (United States), Jan 18, 2006 at 21:21

As a well-seasoned and former Correctional Officer from 1987 to 2003 at the Penitentiary in Lompoc, California I can offer first-hand experience that the "intelligence gathered" is not shared between federal agencies.

It is the same case as in 911. The intelligence was out there, it was not shared as it should be between agencies. For if this intelligence gathered in the Federal Prison System was sent up the chain instead of given a "blind eye" it would have assisted greatly in alerting us to 911 prior to the events of 911.

There are individuals in management positions that are not properly trained to handle this type of intelligence. When intelligence is received they make less than appropriate decisions on how to handle this information, when it is very clear by policy and procedure, how to handle such information. Many times such decisions are based merely upon that individuals personal ignorance, abuse of power and authority in that position, or autonomy of position.

Reform needs to take place in the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

While we continue to debate, "jihad" inmates are using this time to continue their efforts in the federal prison system.
