NATO Takes Out 2nd-Highest al Qaeda Leader in Afghanistan

Shoshanna Utchenik

The U.S. led-NATO forces chalked up a major score in Afghanistan.

Al Qaeda’s second-highest Afghan leader, Sakhr al-Taifi, was killed by a NATO airstrike in eastern Kunar province on Sunday, reports the AP.

Al-Taifi, also known as Mushtaq and Nasim, commanded foreign insurgents in Afghanistan and directed attacks against NATO and Afghan forces, the coalition told AP. He often traveled to Pakistan communicating with al Qaeda higher-ups and transporting weapons and fighters.

NATO reported no civilian casualties in the Sunday strike.

Kentucky Gun Shop Owner Charged with Threatening ATF Agent

Shoshanna Utchenik

Anger management is a great idea for those working around firearms for a living.

Unfortunately former Kentucky gunshop owner and former prison employee Ted Ray Schlenker, 48, of Louisville didn’t get that memo.

Schlenker is charged with mailing threats and a gun to ATF agent Dan Volk in Bowling Green. Reports AP, he’s been in federal custody since his April 28th arrest.

Damning evidence was found at Schlenker’s home, discrepancies were found in his gun shop records, and he may have also had a motive.

ATF considered Schlenker a person of interest in two prior incidents. In January 2010 a grenade exploded on the property of a former co-worker’s family, after Schlenker had faced disciplinary action at work. That March a letter containing white powder and a grenade pin was sent to the same worker at the prison.

This recent ‘care package’ was sent to the ATF agent overseeing Schlenker’s investigation.

Mexico Police Officer Pleads Guilty to Hiring Hit Squad for Mexican Drug Cartel

Shoshanna Utchenik

Carlos Cosme, 36, a Mexican police officer was working in Mexico’s Baja California  Attorney General’s Office as a  supervisor in the sex crimes unit — that is until he decided to trade it all for a piece of Mexican drug cartel FSO. Baja California is the northern most state in Mexico.

Cosme pleaded guilty to federal RICO charges on Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego said in a statement, according to the Courthouse News Service.

Cosme admitted to hiring Jose Ortega Nuno to run a ‘hit squad’ for multinational crime organization the FSO, which amounted to federal conspiracy to murder charges. Cosme also confessed to importing and selling meth on behalf of FSO.

Going down with Cosme on RICO charges are the former Director of International Liaison in the same Baja Attorney General’s Office, Jesus Quinonez Marquez, who pleaded guilty last week, and Jose Ortega Nuno, who was extradited to the United States from Mexico and pleaded guilty in December of 2011.

FBI Has Reason to Doubt Pedro Hernandez Confession to Killing Etan Patz

Like the rest of the Etan Patz disappearance, the murder confession of Pedro Hernandez is not an open-and-shut case.

Lack of evidence, inconsistencies in the suspect’s story, and mental health issues are bringing Hernandez’s confession into doubt, according to the NY Daily News.

Since the 6-year-old Patz went missing in 1979, there has been an emotional parade of suspects and revived searches, including the recent deconstruction of a SoHo basement that revealed no new evidence. When Hernandez, an 18 year old neighborhood bodega worker at the time of the disappearance, confessed in great detail last Wednesday, it appeared something had finally gone right. Hernandez was charged Thursday, and arraigned Friday for second-degree murder.

Several witnesses reported that Hernandez confided to them about hurting a child in the years since Patz went missing. Hernandez said he lured Patz into the bodega by promising treats, only to strangle him to death and discard the body in a garbage bag. However the bipolar suspect appears to be an unreliable source and there is no material evidence linking him to Patz. The child’s body has never been recovered.

“The bosses are very skeptical,” a police source in contact with the FBI told the Daily News. “They don’t believe him. He’s got mental problems and there’s no other evidence. They think we moved too fast.”

Column: Should FBI Be Allowed to Wiretap Facebook?

By Adam Cohen
Time magazine

We may all be getting a new Facebook friend soon: the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The FBI wants to shift its wiretapping from old-school telephone lines to person-to-person platforms like email and instant messaging and even social media like Facebook.

To help it make the switch, the FBI is asking Congress to require tech companies to rewrite their software so it has a “back door” that the FBI can use to listen in.

It is all part of an initiative known as “Going Dark.”

Exciting Ride for Detroit’s Top FBI Agent Andy Arena

Andy Arena

By Allan Lengel
For Deadline Detroit

DETROIT — On Christmas day in 2009, Andrew Arena, head of the Detroit FBI, made a beeline to the airport to deal with a young Nigerian man — aka The Underwear Bomber — who tried to blow up an airliner.

“He slipped up and gave us some stuff,” Arena explained of the valuable global terrorism information the bomber gave up during the interrogation. ” I can’t get into because it’s still classified. We exploited a lot… We got some key stuff.”

Arena was directly involved in the decisions about the interrogating the bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab — including when to read him the Miranda warning, an issue that would later become a “political football” in Washington.

Some conservative Republicans like Michele Bachman were highly critical, insisting the FBI shouldn’t have read the Miranda warning to a terrorist because it may have stifled the flow of valuable information. Many Democrats defended the FBI and Justice Department, which delayed reading the rights, but ultimately did after six hours. The Obama administration claimed it got plenty of valuable information about the plot and terrorism around the world.

“People used the national security issue for political purposes,” he said of the partisan bickering in Washington. “Yeah, that did bother me.”

In his FBI office on Michigan Avenue in downtown Detroit, Arena, a personable man who speaks fondly of his native Detroit, sat down earlier this month with Deadline Detroit reporter Allan Lengel to discuss his 24-year-career in the FBI, including the last five as head of the Detroit office.

He’s set to retire at the end of the week, on May 31, and take over as director of the newly formed Detroit Crime Commission. The commission, he says, will try unearthing corruption and other crime and try to fill some gaps law enforcement hasn’t been able to address.

There’s also the expense for example, the fire department in Kansas City, Kan., calculated it spent $57.26 on gas responding to 14 cat in tree calls in one year.

If that first book and, now, its sequel have not made Phillips rich, they have given him some singular pleasures. It was a remarkably peaceful day, and if the crowd sometimes wandered aimlessly rather than marching in any kind of precision order, it was a happy mayhem: People seemed buoyed by a message of uprising and resilience after an interminable election campaign that divided the country. “This is the upside of the downside,” Ms. Steinem said from the stage.
