American Muslims Claim FBI Placed Them on No-Fly List for Refusing to Be Informants

No one has accused Naveed Shinwari of breaking the law.

But that hasn’t stopped federal authorities from placing him on the no-fly list, which has prevented Shinwari from seeing his wife for the past 26 months, the Guardian reports.

Shinwari said he believes he can’t fly because he’s refused to become an informant for the FBI.

“I’m just very frustrated, [and I said] what can I do to clear my name?” said Shinwari, 30, who has lived in the U.S. since he was 14. “And that’s where it was mentioned to me: ‘you help us, we help you. We know you don’t have a job; we’ll give you money.’”

Shinwari is among four American Muslims accusing the FBI in a lawsuit of retaliating against them for refusing to become informants.
The FBI declined to comment.

It was a 80-year-old lesson the FBI will never forget.

Tuesday was the 80-year anniversary of the bureau’s bungled attempt to arrest gangster John Dillinger and his gang at Little Bohemia Lodge in northern Wisconsin, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Agents acting on a tip tried to raid the lodge but were met with a gun battle that killed a Civilian Conservation Corps worker.

Another gangster, Baby Face Nelson, killed one agent and sounded another.

The gang escaped.

“The FBI learned a lot from its early years and during the tragic incident of Little Bohemia in northern Wisconsin,” Special Agent in Charge Robert J. Shields Jr. said Tuesday.

“The lessons we learned back then would shape how the bureau trained its agents, prepared tactically and even how we developed important partnerships with local law enforcement in the many years that followed.”

It was just Scott S. Smith’s third day as special agent in charge of the FBI’s Pittsburgh office when a student slashed and stabbed classmates in a hallway at Franklin Regional High School last week.

“It was a horrific incident,” Smith told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for a story. “Behind the scenes, though, there’s a lot of investigative activity, evidence collection, witness interviews that have to be done, and they have to be done then.”

Smith allotted 20 agents to the investigation, which includes interviews and evidence reconstruction.

“He was battle-tested in his very first week,” said U.S. attorney David Hickton, who was on the scene with Mr. Smith.

Smith is in charge of 145 FBI agents, in a addition to other support staff and local law enforcement.

The Justice Department has declined to open a criminal investigation into the FBI-involved shooting that left a New Orleans man dead during an undercover drug sting last summer, the Times-Picayune reports.

It’s the second time an agency has opted against pursuing charges against the agent, who shot 37-year-old Allen Desdunes on July 30.

“The Civil Rights Division reviewed the information collected by the FBI regarding the shooting and declined to open a criminal investigation,” said spokeswoman Dena Iverson.

Whatever prompted the shooting remains unclear because the FBI has been tight-lipped.

This much is known: Agents were investigating Desdunes following a drug deal when the shooting occurred.

A 16-year-old boy survived a five-and-a-half-hour trip in the wheel well of a flight from California to Hawaii despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, the FBI said.

CBS News reports that the boy was questioned by the the FBI after he was discovered Sunday on the tarmac without identification at the Maui airport.

“I would imagine flying (at that altitude), it would be very cold. Also … that wheel well really is not pressurized or temperature controlled, so it would be a miracle to have survived,” Maui Airport Duty Manager Marvin Moniz said.

What’s worrisome to federal authorities is how easily Simon hopped a fence to get on the plane at Santa Clara.

Authorities said he was running away from home after an argument

“He was unconscious for the lion’s share of the flight,” FBI spokesman Tom Simon said.
