FBI Failed to Investigate Fort Hood Shooter Despite Danger Signs

 Despite strong evidence that U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan wanted to kill civilians and supported suicide bombings before he killed 13 people in the 2009 attack on Fort Hood, Texas, the FBI never launched an investigation because of concerns over political correctness, The Associated Press reports, citing a lawmakers briefed on a new report about the terrorist attack.

Hasan was even communicating with terrorist  Anwar al-Awlaki, according to the AP.

The review by former FBI Director William Webster shows the agency was concerned over the fallout of investigating an American Muslim and never pursued the case.

Saying the issue was too sensitive, the agency never investigated Hasan, according to the AP.

The FBI wants to begin using tattoo identification to track down criminals and learn more about them, MSNBC reports.

The plan is to add the data to the bureau’s Biometric Center of Excellence, which creates information such as fingerprints, irises and DNA.

The idea is to help identify perpetrators through body art and to understand more about tattoo affiliations, according to MSNBC.

Some tattoos, for example, show whether some people are members of a gang.

There are times when car thieves hit the jackpot. And there are times they try ripping off an FBI agent.

Early Wednesday at 5 a.m. in the South Ozone Park neighborhood of Queens in New York, three men  were breaking into a red Lexis sedan usually driven by an agent’s wife, the New York Times reported. It was parked outside his home.

When he spotted the burglars, the off-duty agent fired a shot from his second story window, wounding one of the suspects, the Times reported. The agent told police the suspects fled in dark colored vehicle, and the one who was believed to be wounded by the agent showed up at the hospital later.

Grassley and Issa Concerned ATF Director’s Comments Could Put a Chill on Whistleblowing

Todd Jones

Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa, two of Capitol Hill’s chief critics of ATF, expressed concern about comments the agency’s acting Director B. Todd Jones made to employees earlier this month.

Specifically, the two were concerned about a comment that could put a chill on whistleblowers.

Todd said: “… if you make poor choices, that if you don’t abide by the rules, that if you don’t respect the chain of command, if you don’t find the appropriate way to raise your concerns to your leadership, there will be consequences. …”

A press release from Grassley and Issa stated:

Grassley and Issa wrote to Jones, stating that the essence of whistleblowing is reporting problems outside of an employee’s chain of command, and whistleblowers were instrumental in exposing the shortcomings of the government’s botched gun-walking operation, Fast and Furious. Grassley and Issa wrote to Jones, “Your ominous message – which could be interpreted as a threat – is likely to have a major chilling effect on ATF employees exercising their rights to contact Congress. Therefore, it needs to be clarified.”

Grassley and Issa also wrote, “On numerous occasions, we have stressed to ATF and the Department of Justice the importance of protecting whistleblower disclosures and preventing retaliation against whistleblowers.”

 

Court to decide FBI’s Power over Phone Records

Can the FBI force a phone company to turn over its customer records for an investigation?

The question is at the center of a rare civil complaint filed by the U.S. Department of Justice, which claims the phone company was interfering with national security, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The case, which is shrouded in secrecy, is expected to answer important questions about the USA Patriot Act.

“This is the most important national-security-letter case” in years, Stephen Vladeck, a professor and expert on terrorism law at the American University Washington College of Law, told the Wall Street Journal. “It raises a question Congress has been trying to answer: How do you protect the First Amendment rights of an NSL (national security letter) recipient at the same time as you protect the government’s interest in secrecy?”

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn said Tuesday he’s optimistic the city can avoid a U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit over police reforms, the Seattle Times reports.

City attorney Pete Holmes said the DOJ will sue by the end of the month if an agreement on police reforms is not reached.

The cause of the holdup is unclear.

The Justice Department raised concerns about the Seattle Police Department repeatedly using unconstitutional force and is negotiating a court-monitored consent decree.
