FBI Joins Search for Missing 6-Year-old Girl in Washington State

The FBI is helping search for a 6-year-old girl who disappeared from her Washington state home this weekend, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The parents, who took FBI-administered polygraph tests, said they waited a day – Sunday – to report Jenise Wright missing because she often wanders off in the fenced-in mobile home park in Bremerton, across from Seattle on the west side of Puget sound.

“We are harnessing all this manpower and expertise because we are covering all the bases,” Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Wilson said. “We only get one chance to do this right the first time.”

Local and state authorities also are searching.

“Anything is possible,” he said. “Children do really surprising things. She could be almost anywhere.”

The FBI won’t conduct nationwide background checks on people applying to operate a legal marijuana business in Washington state in stark contrast to the handling of applicants in Colorado, the Associated Press reports.

The FBI’s refusal to conduct the checks surprised officials in Washington because the federal agency does similar background checks in Colorado, where marijuana also is legal for recreational use.

The inconsistent practices of the FBI worries some.

Others in Washington state are worried that people with egregious criminal histories will end up with pot licenses.

FBI agents and local police said the man wore latex gloves and covered his face. When he wore a metallic fabric over his face, he was known as the “Cyborg Bandit.” When he covered his head with shirt, he was called “Elephant Man Bandit.”

The man was arrested Tuesday after authorities followed around his van.

When FBI agents Matt and Katia Litton were arrested in an alleged steroid ring in September 2010, they were shocked.

Sure enough, the charges were dropped two months later.

The couple said they were taking steroids because they were trying to have a baby, the Washington Post  reports.

Still, three years after the arrest, the couple has been all but sidelined at the Washington Field Office and Quantico because an administrative review continues, the Washington Post wrote.

“We’ve been in still water,” Katia said. “There has to be some sort of justice to let people move on.”

The FBI declined to comment on the case.

Douglas E. Lindquist, who recently served as section chief of the Counterintelligence Division at FBI headquarters, has been named head of the agency’s El Paso Division.

Lindquist began his career with the FBI in 1997, and was first posted at the Washington Field Office, where he investigated international terrorism and counterintelligence.

In 1998, as a member of the Rapid Deployment Team, he deployed to Nairobi and Mombasa, Kenya, as part of the KENBOM investigation, which followed the bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa, according to an FBI press release.

In 2002, he was promoted to a supervisor in the Middle East Unit of the International Terrorism Operations Section in the Counterterrorism Division.

Two years later, he joined the Springfield Division as a counterintelligence squad supervisor and program coordinator. He also supervised the Field Intelligence Group squad.

In 2009, he was off to Philly where he became assistant special agent in charge of the division’s counterterrorism and weapons of mass destruction programs and directed the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Before joining the FBI, he was an officer in the Marine Corps.

 

 

Editorial: Justice Department Wrong to Ignore Federal Pot Laws

The Post-Journal
Editorial
 
Marijuana is illegal under federal law. Yet Attorney General Eric Holder has decided not to interfere in any way with two states where recreational use of the drug has become permissible.

Colorado and Washington decriminalized marijuana last fall. Many states allow its use for medicinal purposes, but the two western states in essence allow anyone who wants to get high to buy the drug.

Proponents of legalizing marijuana for recreational use were delighted by Holder’s decision. “The message to the people of the other 48 states … is clear: Seize the day,” exulted Neill Franklin, of one pro-legalization group.
