Police and FBI Tracked bin Laden’s Son-in-Law For About 10 Years

By Mark Hosenball

WASHINGTON – U.S. investigators tracked Suleiman Abu Ghaith, a son-in-law of Osama bin Laden, for about 10 years before he was detained in Jordan and brought by the FBI to New York City in the past few days, U.S. officials familiar with the investigation said.

An FBI agent and a New York police detective together spent more than a decade investigating Abu Ghaith, not only for his role as a spokesman for al Qaeda after the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington but for activities they believed he was involved in before 2001, said one official.

On Friday, Abu Ghaith pleaded not guilty in Manhattan federal court to conspiring to kill Americans, becoming one of the highest-ranking al Qaeda figures to face trial in the United States for crimes connected to the September 11 attacks.

FBI Arrests NYPD Cop For Abusing Position

By Danny Fenster

Nobody f–ks with Admir Kacamakovic’s cousin’s place.

That’s what Kacamakovic, a seven year veteran of the New York Police Department, told a patron of his cousin’s Brooklyn bar in the 62nd Police Precinct, according to the New York Post.

On duty and donning a full uniform, Kacamakovic assaulted, pepper sprayed, handcuffed and illegally detained a patron involved in a dispute over a parking spot in front of the bar in 2008, according to an FBI affidavit by agent Warren Y. Chiu.

Another individual was assaulted with pepper spray by Kacamakovic during the incident, according to the affidavit.  FBI agents arrested and charged Kacamakovic with civil rights violations.

Federal authorities are also accusing Kacamakovic of obtaining information from an FBI computer database regarding his cousin, who was the focus of a federal narcotics trafficking probe, for which he later pleaded guilty to in July 2010,  according to an FBI affidavit.  He is also accused of obtaining information from law enforcement data base on the individual involved in the parking dispute after that individual filed a formal complaint against the officer.

Kacamakovic was charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors.
