Kreidie getting greedy?

Reader comment on item: The FBI Loses Its Way [with Marwan Kreidie]

You wrote "How, then, did this anti-counterterrorism, anti-Bush, anti-Ashcroft, anti-FBI figure exactly help in "identifying, preventing and disrupting acts of terrorism"? Presented with this record of Kreidie's remarks, the Philadelphia FBI office declined to comment."

My comment: perhaps he was helpful, by protesting too much.

Maybe the spooks figured that if he wasn't helping them, they would destroy his credibility with his islamic colleagues, by suggesting he did?

The FBI is hardly a model of transparency.

Still, I'm satisfied that on average pointing out these inconsistencies does more good than harm.

Keep it up.
