He doesn't trust the FBI?

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

Submitted by Stan Beer (Australia), Mar 16, 2003 at 23:10

Pardon me for posing an obvious question, but if this so-called Muslim American doesn't trust the FBI ("them"), why did he join the organisation? First, he refuses a directive to undertake an intelligence operation, citing that he's scared for his life. I was under the impression that being exposed to possible life threatening risk was part of the job description of working for a law enforcement agency. If you can't cut the mustard, you should be discharged.

Second, he declares that he won't tape another Muslim and, in so doing, hampers the progress of a number of important investigations into terrorism.

Thus, we have a man who has openly declared that his loyalty lays not with his adopted country, the US, and the FBI, his employer, but with his co-religionists, the Muslims.

At best, he's a non-cooperative, obstructionist, delinquent Federal Government employee who's soft on Islamist terrorism.

At worst, he's a dangerous counter-intelligence agent actively working for Islamist causes. Whatever the case, he should have been given the boot the minute he disobeyed his first order. Instead, he gets promoted to an extremely important assignment.

Is this merely FBI bungling? Or is something more sinister going on within that organisation? Thank you for bringing this important story to light, Dr. Pipes.
