Dereliction of Duty by the FBI

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

Ref: "Solidarity with Terror" by Lee Kaplan

Dear Daniel:
I'm sure you are aware of the referenced article currently published on the Front Page Magazine site! I read the article and was so enflamed by the fact that this sort of thing could go on (in the open) in America, that I was inspired to send it to the FBI recommending that they fully investigate this recruiting and training course, and the people involved. Since Mr. Kaplan named names and even had pictures in his article, I assumed it an easy task to verify (by the FBI) the illegal conspiracy, insurrection and disruption being planned here in the USA against a lawfully constituted state (Israel) in the Middle East, and one that is also an primary ally of the USA in the War-On-Terrorism! Boy, was I wrong! What follows is a copy of the response I received back from the FBI which I believe is Dereliction of Duty of the first order of magnitude!...

Subject: FBI Response

Dear Mr. Wing,


Thank you for your submission to the FBI Internet Tip Line. After evaluating your Information, it is our determination that your
case is one in which the FBI does not have jurisdiction to further investigate. Due to freedom of speech, the FBI may only investigate when a website contains an explicit, specific threat against a group or individual.

For your information, the Internet Tip Line was created on 9/11/01, in response to the terrorist attacks upon America. We quickly established a mechanism for the public to submit information to the FBI via the Internet. Our operation is completely automated and paperless. Submitted tips are received immediately, reviewed within minutes and prioritized by trained Professional Support personnel, and Agents set action leads within the hour, as appropriate.

We encourage you to share this information with your family, friends, and co-workers, and encourage them to not hesitate to submit information they may deem of interest to the FBI.


The FBI does not maintain an email address to submit information or attachments to directly; therefore, please do not reply directly to this message via your email client. The FBI maintains an automated system that is designed to track all
information received, to ensure that all tips are addressed in a timely and efficient manner. Therefore, please visit the FBI.GOV Web site again should you have occasion to submit additional information.


Daniel, maybe you can put enough pressure on the FBI to get appropriate action since you seem to live in the proximity of Washington! I'd like to suggest that you contact l office of the FBI and get a first hand response from them on the article and the people involved. There is no excuse for the brush off they gave to the information in the article and especially when they have the author to use as first hand testimony to the illegal activities being conducted by the ISM! The college professors and the others named in the article are traitors to our country as much as they are to our allies, the Israelis! Also, if any of the trainees, do arrive in Israel, I'd sure like to have them appropriately greeted at the airport or other port of entry by a contingent of informed IDF troops and maybe spend a few days with some Mossad interrogators before being deported back to where they come from....or better yet put them on a plane to IRAQ!

Richard Wing

P.S. I also sent a copy of this e-mail to the Dept. of Homeland Security, to Jamie Glazov, of Front Page Magazine, and to Charles Johnson at LGF, and I posted it to the comments page of the article on Front Page Magazine hoping to get some further action! NOTHING!!!! Please Daniel do something to give this experience of mine some publicity.
