President Obama officially welcomed James Comey to his new post as FBI director during a ceremony Monday at the J. Edgar Hoover Building.

The president applauded what he called Comey’s judgment and commitment, according to a White House blog.

“Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity: That’s your motto,” the President told the men and women of the FBI.  “And today, we’re here to welcome a remarkable new leader for this remarkable institution, one who lives those principles out every single day: Mr. Jim Comey.”

Obama said Comey was the best choice to head the FBI.

“It’s just about impossible to find a matter of justice he has not tackled, and it’s hard to imagine somebody who is not more uniquely qualified to lead a bureau that covers all of it — traditional threats like violent and organized crime to the constantly changing threats like terrorism and cyber-security,” he said.

FBI Agents Are Accused of Bugging Boss’ Office, Buying Sex, Texting Lurid Photos

It appears some FBI agents are having a little bit too much fun on the job, internal disciplinary reports obtained by CNN show.

The reports indicate agents bugged a boss’ office, sent naked photos to co-workers, sexted on the job and paid for sex at a message parlor, CNN reported.

The FBI, whose motto is fidelity, bravery, integrity, has been dealing with “a rash of sexting cases” in which agents are using government-issued phones to send lurid pictures and suggestive texts.

“We’re hoping (that) getting the message out in the quarterlies is going to teach people, as well as their supervisors … you can’t do this stuff,” FBI assistant director Candice Will told CNN this week. “When you are given an FBI BlackBerry, it’s for official use. It’s not to text the woman in another office who you found attractive or to send a picture of yourself in a state of undress. That is not why we provide you an FBI BlackBerry.”

WASHINGTON — And now for the FBI agent who has everything.

The FBI Recreation Association, a non-profit organization which sells official FBI merchandise at headquarters and FBI field offices, has announced on its website that it is selling an official FBI cologne called “Integrity”.

“For the first time ever,  a terrific, light spicy fragrance for the FBI’s man of distinction is now being offered at the RA Services Desk. Purchase a bottle for the man in your life. Only $36.99 a bottle,” the website says.

First off, who knew integrity smelled so good?

Don’t worry ladies. The Association says it will be out with a fragrance for women in 2010.

What would J. Edgar Hoover say?

Who knows?  But the FBI did not have an immediate comment.

By the way, the FBI website says all FBI employees belong to the  FBI Recreation Association free of  charge.

WASHINGTON — The newly minted Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. addressed Justice Department employees Tuesday morning and vowed to fight terrorism and improve the integrity of the department.
“We must restore the credibility of this Department, which has been so badly shaken by allegations of improper political interference,” he said, according to a prepared statement released by the Justice Department. “Law enforcement decisions and personnel actions must, and they will, be untainted by partisanship.”
In the area of terrorism, he said:
“We must strengthen the activities of the federal government as we protect the people – the American people – from terrorism. Nothing we will do will be more important. We must use every available tactic to defeat our adversaries – and we must do so within the letter and the spirit of the Constitution. There is not a tension between the ideals that formed this nation and that which we must do to keep it safe.
The following is the full text of his speech:

Good morning.

It’s a privilege to speak to you today, both as the new Attorney General and as your returning colleague. I am deeply honored to have the opportunity once again to work side-by-side with all of you here at the United States Department of Justice.
The Justice Department has aptly been described as the “crown jewel” of the federal government. It has attained this distinction not because of any laws or regulations, cases or controversies, buildings or equipment, but rather because of the quality, integrity, and dedication of the people who work tirelessly to carry out the Department’s vital mission. Simply stated, you – the employees of the United States Department of Justice – are the backbone, the heart, and the soul of this great agency.
