Day 1 – A request that we do our best to avoid posting videos in the comment section. You can refer to the location of one on the net describing in your opinion how it relates to the matters under discussion but the naked posting takes away from the discussion aspects of the comments.
Day 5 – According to the Bureau of Prison (BOP) website Whitey is still in transit. How is it that it takes so long to go from Pymouth, MA to some other U.S. location. Maybe I was wrong when I said Whitey would be subject to the deisel therapy. Perhaps because of the cut back in federal fundings (called by the strange name: sequestration?) the BOP has decided there is a more money saving way of transporting prisoners, have them walk. It’s especially good therapy for guys over 80. Right now Whitey should be somewhere near Milford. If you see a guy in an orange jump suit limping along surrounded by 37 plain clothes Marshalls carrying AK-47s let us know. Do you think it will take as long to transport him out to ADX as it has taken the FBI to tell us how and why it killed Ibragim Todashev?
Day 187 – the number of days the FBI takes to investigate or cover-up the killing of Todashev who was shot down by one of its agents. We neither know the name of the agent nor of any of the others involved in this killing. The extent of the FBI’s powers is that it can prevent two states from discussing the incident and stop the release of the coroner’s report. I find it amazing that those in positions of power don’t care that a person can be killed by law enforcement officers and they can cover-up the crime. Surely keeping what happened for six months is equivalent to a cover-up.
Day 224 – since the Boston Marathon Terrorist Attack – the FBI will not disclose, not even to Congress, whether Tamerlan Tsarnaev was an informant for it. MSFreeh points out that McVeigh’s buddy Terry Nichols says McVeigh was an FBI informant which I doubt since he never used it in his defense. Since we will never get the truth from the FBI, we will have to wait until Joker goes to trial to find this out. One thing I’ll never understand is why the FBI publicly released the photographs of the Tsarnaevs when they had agents in its office who knew them.
Day 828 – (I use August 17, 2011 as the date. The Boston Globe reported on that date that Congressman Stephen Lynch demanded a briefing from the FBI on why they used Mark Rossetti as an informant) This all comes about because Massachusetts “State Police recorded more than 40 conversations between Rossetti and his FBI handler in the spring of 2010, through a wiretap on Rossetti’s FBI-issued phone, according to the court documents.” The FBI agent told Rossetti “my job is to keep you anonymous and keep you safe.’’ or as the article noted “His handler promises that [Rossetti’s] safety is his biggest concern and that he will deal with the fallout from the upcoming state wiretap [this wiretap] as it progresses.’’
This is a complicated investigation because it has taken so long. The FBI is investigating what happened within the FBI.
