Opinion: FBI Headquarters Should Stay in Washington D.C.

Garrett M. Graff
Washington Post

The FBI lists its official address as 935 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, as if one could wander by the angular, concrete, block-size headquarters without noticing the J. Edgar Hoover Building. The aging 11-story monstrosity — an especially ugly example of the Brutalist movement in architecture — is nearing the end of its life, and not even preservation experts want to save it.

But that doesn’t mean the bureau should leave the District.

The FBI’s requirements have shifted with time: Digital records have negated the need for floor upon floor of fingerprint files, while staff increases have led to workers being scattered across more than 20 annexes in this area alone. The thousands of Hoover Building staffers who spend their days in its drab corridors would almost certainly love a building filled with natural light and less linoleum.

ATF Agent Recalls “Worst Law Enforcement-Involved Shooting in American History”

Steve Neavling

When 29-year-old Clay Alexander heard the first gunshots, the ATF agent quickly realized, “They are shooting at me.”

Alexander, who was shot in the legs, spoke at length to the Tyler Morning Telegraph about the Feb. 28, 1993, raid on the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.

“It was very bizarre. At that point, I had never heard a gun fired in anger,” Alexander said told the newspaper. “I had never been in a gunfight in law enforcement or otherwise. If it would have only lasted a couple of seconds, that would have been one thing, but it lasted about 45 minutes.”

The standoff has caused some “dark times,” he said.

Looming Budget Cuts Prompted Homeland Security to Release Thousands of Illegal Immigrants

Steve Neavling

Homeland Security released more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation because of looming budget cuts, not a few hundred as originally reported, Catholic Online writes.Since Feb. 15, about 1,000 illegal immigrants considered low risk have been released each week, according to Catholic Online. 

The Obama administration said it was not aware of the plan, and Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano criticized her agency’s handling of the release.

“Beyond that normal movement, and as fiscal uncertainty remains over the continuing resolution and possible sequestration, ICE reviewed its detained population to ensure detention levels stay within ICE’s current budget and placed several hundred individuals on methods of supervision less costly than detention,” ICE spokesman Brian Hale said.

Justice Department Faces Serious Cuts If Sequestration Isn’t Avoided Today

Steve Neavling

The Justice Department faces $1.6 billion in cuts – nearly 10% of it budget – if Congress and the White House can’t reach an agreement on the nation’s spending plan by later today, NPR reports.

Obama earlier warned of big cuts to federal law enforcement.

“FBI Agents will be furloughed,” Obama warned. “Federal prosecutors will have to close cases and let criminals go.”

Attorney General Eric Holder said a sequestration would be painful, NPR reported.

“Under sequestration, we’ll do the best that we can to minimize the harm that actually occurs as a result,” Holder said. “But the reality is that there is going to be harm. There is going to be pain, and the American people are going to be less safe. That is just a fundamental reality that people have got to get their heads around.”
