Irresponsible Writing By Herald Columnist

Wondering How Someone Could Be So Irresponsible.
Wondering How Someone Could Be So Irresponsible.

It’s hard not to get drawn away from discussing Whitey when events all around seem to cry out for some type of response. I understand you aren’t really interested in anything I have to say outside of the narrow confines of the Whitey saga sometimes tolerating me running a little off the reservation but preferring I stay on the home ground. Yet, there are some things that absolutely have a similar pull on me as that of the earth on the moon and I find myself slipping out of my comfort zone.

I use Sunday (and sometimes other days) to go off topic. I’m pulled away this time by an article I read on last Friday which is one of the most outrageous columns ever written by a person in the mainstream media. It was by Peter Gelzinis of the Boston Herald.

In his May 3 column Gelzinis made this statement. If Dias Kadyrbayev makes the call to the FBI when he finds the backpack he knows belongs to one of the marathon bombers, it’s possible law enforcement could have pinged off Dzhokhar’s cellphone and moved to intercept the Tsarnaev brothers before Sean Collier was assassinated.

“Obstructing justice” is far too clinical a term for the decision Dias Kadyrbayev made to get rid of his friend’s backpack and protect him just long enough for Sean Collier to be killed. . . .”

Dias Kadyrbayev is the 19-year-old student at UMass Dartmouth who has been in the US since 2011 having come here from Kazakhstan. He is  allegedly studying some subject or another but seems to be enjoying the life of a rich oil kid. His old man is a politician in that country and apparently has a job that pays well enough to send his kid to the USA to play around for a while.

Gelzinis is apparently looking to make Dias some sort of accessory to the murder of MIT police officer Sean Collier.

It’s important to start off by looking at the timeline in this matter to see how outrageous is Gelzinis’s statement.  The FBI made its public showing of the suspects sometime after 5:00 p.m. on April 18, 2013. A little over five hours later at about 10:20 that evening Sean Collier was murdered.

Here’s the other timelines you should know about.

” Between 8:43 p.m. and 8:48, [Dias] Kadyrbayev then texted [Joker] Tsarnaev, telling him he looked like the suspect. Tsarnaev replied, “lol,” then texting other comments Kadyrbayev assumed were jokes, like “you better not text me” and “come to my room and take whatever you want.” It’s worth noting that there is no mention in the complaint of Tsarnaev calling his friends and asking them to hide evidence, as had been reported.

At about 9 p.m., Tazhayakov [the other Khazakhstan student indicted] was shopping when he got a text from Kadyrbayev reading, “Have you seen the news?” Kadyrbayev told him that Tsarnaev was pictured by the FBI. Tazhayakov returned to their apartment, and Kadyrbayev showed him the images on CNN. Kadyrbayev texted Phillipos at about 9 p.m. and told him to “go to Jahar’s room.”

After 9:00 the three students went to Joker’s room. They initially watched a movie and then discovered the back pack with the fireworks.  By that time Sean Collier had been murdered. How then can Gelzinis be so irresponsible as to suggest that Dias could have prevented his killing?

Even assuming Dias rather than texting Joker at 8:45 pm had the FBI telephone number and picked up the phone and notified the FBI of his suspicions. Do you believe  the FBI would have immediately believed the kid and tracked down the Tsarnaevs and stopped them from murdering Officer an hour and a half later?

The great difficutly we face is that we have no idea of how the events unfolded during this time period. I know that because the FBI has imposed a blackout on these things except for when it leaks selective items to its favorite reporters like Joker’s statement they were going to go to Times Square or the latest that they were going to do a 4th of July bombing.

What the FBI has not told anyone is how the operation unfolded from the day when it should have started, the time the Russians told us we had a terrorist in our midst to the time it asked for the public’s help in identifying the Tsarnaevs.  More to this issue it has not told us how many people did call with the identity of the Tsarnaevs prior to the time officer Sean Collier was murdered and what it did with each of those calls.

I read that there were several people who went to school with Joker in Cambridge who recognized him. Some of those may have called in with that information. What happened to that? What about those Cambridge kids who recognized him and didn’t call in. Are they too responsible for the death of Officer Collier?

Then perhaps we can move back. What about the FBI people who first interviewed Tamerlan? Do we say that not only are they responsible for not knowing he was a terrorist and watching him but are responsible for all the deaths that followed. What about the FBI’s premature release of the pictures of the men. Could they not have been more thorough, isolated other and better pictures as they seemed to have done, worked with local police departments or the passport bureau to see if they could have identified him and not have gone out publicly with it. Isn’t the fact the Tsarnaevs were alerted they had been identified the proximate cause of their decision to murder Officer Collier? The public display of their pictures occasioned their flight.  Was it necessary?

You get my gist. There are tens, hundreds or even more who can end up taking the blame yet Gelzinis focuses upon this one 19-year-old student, ignores the actual facts and suggest the Feds may want to charge him in connection with Officer Collier’s murder. Knowing of the propensity of the Feds to follow the local mainstream media, we may yet see that happening.

  1. mtc9393 – It was not I who used the word “co-conspirators.”

    And quite frankly I am not sure what you mean by gets “swept up by the great vaccuum.” Would that be the “Hoover” (pun intended) kind of vacuum???

    1. Alex:
      You are right, it is Jay who used that word. My apologies. I hope the feds don’t get confused.

      The Great Vacuum which I will write about soon is the big machine the US government uses to suck in every communication made by an American for future reference. As I have reminded people in the past everything that is written here, or in any other site, is kept in perpetuity by the government. It may or may not be used against you at some time but whether it is or not you will never know. You are right when you suggest it is something like a Hoover who had many less tools at his disposal.

      1. Dear Matt,

        To substitute for the term “co-conspirators,” is there a top secret code word which could be used instead, to circumvent the vacuum? I propose perhaps the phrase “dirt devils,” if that may serve this purpose?

        Sincerely,
        Jay

        1. Jay:

          I’m not sure there is anyway we can avoid having our utterances being swept up by the Big Vacuum. It sweeps up every word written or uttered. But if we use words like dirt devils we may avoid having a mark put next to our names and no FBI surveillance will take place. Good suggestion.

      2. Ahhh. The great information vaccuum. The difficulty is this: Even the vaccuums themselves occasionally have to be cleaned out and emptied of the bad gunk that can build up in them or they get clogged, jammed, and don’t work right. The metaphor of course being thus – sometimes even the “dirt devils” themselves have to “come clean” in order for things to always work smoothly and at an optimum level.

        Yes, everything we write and say electronically is monitored. Our GPS systems in our cars are monitored. Our purchases at the grocery stores are monitored. Our card swipes at the pharmacy are monitored. Our facebooks are monitored, Our dating sites are monitored. Our applications to job sites are monitored. Our online purchases are monitored. Kids tests and grades at school are monitored. Yet somehow, with all the monitoring the terrorists are getting through, the pedophiles are getting through, the wacko Craiglist killers get through….Ironically, what I get from your readers and commentators though is this and I may be speaking out of school, and after all who, am I to judge, but this is what I sense – they “care.” You and your readers actually “care” about this country. You “care”; which I know is quickly becoming the worst four letter word in the book.

        Unfortunately, the great vaccuum will strike fear in many of those who “care” and have a chilling effect on their comments. The great vaccuum will thus inspire less intellectually stimulating conversation and render us all to mundane subjects that focus on Kim Kardashian’s weight and wear or Lindsay Lohan’s latest faux pas. Notice even how much attention is spent commenting on Mr. Bulger’s orange jumpsuit repeatedly and how he looks.

        Mtc9393, I dare say, at the vaccuum’s rate, your intellectually stimulating blog of infotainment may have to come to an end soon and submit to mere empty fashion reports on the color of the day. Which, of course, will be orange for some – but alas perhaps you can still capture some sort of audience out there by jazzing it up, you know, flair it with fluffy words like: “he entered court today wearing an all cotton jumpsuit in a stunning color some call Santa Monica Sunset.”

        Oh, how stimulating the audience will be for you and your readers then. Sorry, I am off to see what Ryan Seacrest is up to now. Does he have a blog? How about Joan Rivers so I can talk about the red carpet all day? OR do I have to stick with Fox and Friends to be “safe”. Heads up Sean Hannity – and O’Reilly – you don’t scare me.

        1. Alex:
          Great post – a lot of hidden gems which pretty much tell the story of where we are heading. I wrote a post saying the 2nd Amendment in so much as it is intended to keep America free is out of date because no group of civilians could ever compete with the police power of our states and country. Some people called me a communist for making that suggestion. It’s getting that any criticism of the government is not appreciated by the majority of the people who fail to understand that the essence of being an American is to criticise the government when you think it is doing something wrong. I’m sure the people in charge would prefer us to concentrate on whether Hi Lo wore an Orange see through dress to the local KFC outlet but for some of us it’s just not that important.
          I’ve got an idea though, when I go to the trial Whitey won’t be wearing his orange jump suit. The jurors are not supposed to know that he is in prison so he’ll be dressed as a normal dude. I’ll have to make it a point, if I remember, to start off each report about his tie. My first one will go like this, “Mr. White entered court today with a blue tie with red stripes, the old colors of South Boston High School. Mr. Wyshak who wore a tie of purple and hazel advised the court that he believed Mr. Bulger’s tie was symbolic of his loyalty to South Boston. He then asked Judge Casper to take judicial notice of that and to direct a verdict of guilty on all charges unless Mr White removed his offensive tie. Judge Casper declared Mr. White guilty and the trial ended. Mr White left court holding up his tie in defiance of the court and singing “I was born down on A Street, raised up on B Street, Southie is my home town.” Sentencing is set for March 17, 2014, for three in the afternoon after the parade has finished.

          Oh, and as for the Big Vacuum – it is unbreakable and like a certain deity will live forever.

          1. Please, don’t forget to include commentary on Judge Casper’s hair-do and whether her fancy “reverse” french manicure as she gavels over the “gallimaufry” of it all holds up – Inquiring Minds Want To Know.

            1. Alex:
              Of course, that goes without saying. I will also bring in the real flavor of the trial by describing the wearing apparel of the lawyers, the legal clerks, the stenographer and many of the women who will be present. I understand from some of my gal friends about town that this is going to be Boston’s version of the Kentucky Derby where women come to court wearing their finest hats, the larger the feathers the better. In fact, I might write nothing about the evidence and stick with what really matters, the dress and identity of the spectators. I hope Hi Lo shows up.

  2. To clarify, I misstated “criminal indictment” above which should properly read “criminal complaint.” Of course, only a grand jury can issue an indictment, not one sole criminal investigator. 🙂 -Jay

    1. Jay:
      I din’t notice and I’m sure few others did. Although I would suggest in the federal system (and perhaps the state system) the grand jury has no relation to the original idea behind creating a grand jury which was to stand as a wall between the state and the people. No one could be charged unless this group if disinterested civilians were convinced a crime had been committed. Today it has been turned into an arm of the prosecution, rather than what it should be as an arm of the court. It is used as a tool to gather up evidence, to punish people who will not cooperate, and to rubber stamp anything the prosecutors put in front of it. That’s why for all purposes complaint and indictment mean the same thing.

  3. Dear Matt,

    As much as some may lament your occasional deviations from direct coverage of the James Bulger saga, I appreciate the larger connections and commentaries and the reflections these have about the administration of American justice. Ultimately, I believe that your deviations connect to that big picture, which is a purpose which your Bulger trial coverage faithfully serves.

    As we consider the role of connections, I’d like to point out an interesting one. As we see from the complaint against Tsarnaev, it is attested to by FBI Special Agent Daniel Genck, as noted here: http://www.politisite.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/criminal-complaint-united-states-vs-dzhokhar.pdf. Next, as we consider Genck’s credentials and background, we discover other cases on which he has worked. One such case is the trial of pharmacist Tarek Mehanna, who was convicted by a federal trial jury in Boston, late in 2011. See Milton J. Valencia, FBI Agent Testifies About Mehanna’s Online Postins, BOSTON GLOBE, November 24, 2011, http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2011/11/24/fbi_agent_testifies_about_mehannas_online_postings/.

    Subsequently, on April 12, 2012, Mehanna was sentenced to 17.5 years in prison for providing material support for terrorists and conspiring to do the same, inter alia. See FBI PRESS RELEASE, Tarek Mehanna Sentenced in Boston to 17 Years on Terrorism-Related Charged, April 12, 2012, http://www.fbi.gov/boston/press-releases/2012/tarek-mehanna-sentenced-in-boston-to-17-years-in-prison-on-terrorism-related-charges; see also Andrew F. Marsh, A Dangerous Mind?, THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 21, 2012, http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/22/opinion/sunday/a-dangerous-mind.html.

    The above article from the NEW YORK TIMES turned the Mehanna case into yet another scathing criticism of U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz for alleged overreaching prosecuting a “thought crime” and infringing First Amendment freedoms. Civil rights issues aside, as we consider the role of FBI Special Agent Daniel Genck, we also learn who served as Mehanna’s defense in that case… It was none other than J.W. Carney, Jr. and Janice Bassil!

    So, the same FBI Agent working on the Mehanna case was a lead investigator in the Tarek Mehanna case; he is the same lead investigator in the Tsarnaev case, as the criminal indictment bears his name, attestation, and signature as the affiant. Carney and Bassil’s performance at trial for Mehanna was well-publicized in the press, and they have appealed Mehanna’s conviction. See WBUR, Sudbury Man Found Guilty of Conspiring to Help Al-Qaida, December 20, 2011, http://www.wbur.org/2011/12/20/tarek-mehanna-guilty.

    The ACLU announced its filing of an amicus brief in December of 2012. See ACLU, USA v. Mehanna, http://aclum.org/usa_v_mehanna. As there appear to be no subsequent updates, I am assuming that the Mehanna appeal remains under review. We also can see Carney himself making statements about the guilty verdict there in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OaKvO_H5MM.

    So the conclusion, I think, is that this is all related. Shakespeare reminded us in THE TEMPEST that “what is past is prologue.” Accordingly, the past is rich with important lessons for how today’s players — such as Genck, Carney, Ortiz, and others — shall fulfill their respective roles in the future.

    Thank you, Matt, for sharing these thoughts about the interjection of subjectivity and opinion under the guise of “fair and balanced reporting.” Unlike Carr, this article by Gelzinis does not appear to come in the form of a political column, thereby making it all the more dangerous to vulnerable uninformed minds.

    Thank you for informing us all.

    Sincerely,
    Jay

    1. Jay:

      Another great comment that helps us connect things. What I like is that you are doing a lot of work that substantiates your statements. That’s why I suggest you would do well to have a blog yourself because you have a skill at writing clearly and backing up your assertions.

      I recalled that Tarek Mehanna case but have to go back and look at it again. There seemed to have been a real First Amendment issue in that case. I have to go back to it again. Your comment will make it easy to do. Thanks.

      1. To Mtc9393 (and Jay)

        Dear Mtc9393, at the risk of being so bold, and if I may request, please don’t suggest that “Jay” start his own blog even though we agree he is a terrific writer, both from a substantive as well as style standpoint. I only have time to read one “blog” on this subject and I have chosen this one for so many reasons. In fact, I find that Jay’s comments often lend further “oomph” and “insight” and a sense of “two-way” trust that the communications along this line reach out to people of “all” kinds and educational backgrounds. Moreover, while I occasionally sit-back and say nothing, please know I am tuning in and enjoying the verbal volley between the two of you very, very much. (Jay – please don’t go anywhere~)

        Lastly, to the both of you – the big picture and “connections” is where it is at for some of us out here in “reader land.” In fact, the focus being put on “weaving together the intricate web of informational sources in such an inter-disciplinary way” is the very foundation upon which the entire future of education is being built. You are, in essene, the very educational model for the future of English language discourse.

        Please know, I am humbled to be in your “commentary company.”

        That said, I read with significant interest Jay’s comments about the connections to “Sudbury.”

        Sudbury – Sudbury – of all places.

        Truth be told, I think there is a higher-writer than both of you – than all of you – than any and all of us – in all of this. If I am not mistaken, there was a reference to “Sudbury” in direct connection with the Bulger’s together in the past. I hate to raise his name as many readers consider him vile – but if I am not mistaken and recollection serves me right. I think it was in Howie Carr’s book. I can’t remember precisely what page it was on since I read the book years ago when it came out, but if I remember correctly – there was a reference to Senate President Bulger talking about “Sudbury” maybe half-way through or 2/3 of the way through the book. It wasn’t a big book so I am going to guess it was around page 300 or so, give or take (forgive me if I am off a few pages –it’s been so long since I have read it). All I remember or can see in my mind’s eye is that to the left, maybe on the left hand side of the page, the top began with at the words “But 75 State Street…Jeremiah O’Sullivan….” Again, I’m a little fuzzy, but Mr. Connolly’s name appears somewhere in there too (maybe lower on the page?) Then on the right hand side, I see in the middle – Senate President Bulger said something about “Sudbury.”

        Sudbury?! Fascinating.

        You know, there is another connection to “Sudbury” too in all of this –

        Anyway, Mtc9393, Jay, et al – Thank you ALL for keeping it interesting and keeping up the focus on for simple readers like me!

        1. To Clarify – the “higher writer in all of this” to whom I was referring in that last post was NOT Mr. Carr, in any way. To be very clear: the “higher writer” to whom I was referring is the “highest writer of them all.”

          1. Alex:

            Of course everyone knows now who you are referring to. Most people when they think of Sudbury do not think of the highest writer but do think of the highest hitter who lived in Sudbury, Babe Ruth.

        2. Alex:

          I agree with you. I would hate to lose Jay’s comments because he does write so well. But if he had another blog we could always link over to it and it would be fascinating.

          I checked out the reference in Howie’s book to Sudbury and he said that Billy Bulger sadi he did some work for the Quinn brothers “in Maynard or Sudbury” and Jay’s pharmacist friend came from Sudbury. But Howie told us in the book that Salibury Beach was in New Hampshire so when he puts Sudbury in his book he mighj be referring to Sudbury, Vermont.

          When you talk about Sudbury and “the highest writer of them all” I can only think of the lines, “”The moving hand writes, and having writ moves on. Neither all your tears, nor all your wit, shall lure it back to erase half a line, nor change a word of it.”

          1. Alex McCoy and Matt,

            For once, I am rendered virtually speechless by the entertaining and thoughtful feedback. Good memory on the page citation in Carr’s book. And mark my words, one day he shall be held accountable for the rampant plague of disinformation which he has unleashed upon the City on a Hill with the assistance of a few willing and powerful co-conspirators.

            Sincerely,
            Jason

            1. Alex:
              Be careful with the use of the word co-conspirators. It is one of the terms that is swept up by the Great Vacuum.

          2. Hmmm – kind of an eeery message in your last paragraph. Not sure how to read it. Sounds a bit like a warning. As such, I won’t go into too much detail…

            Accordingly, I will say only this: Sudbury. Maybe not as famous a zip code as 90210, but it’s a symbolic zip code nonetheless – 01776. It was the first postal zip code issued in the United States in commemoration of the birth of our nation. That was pointed out to me once before as the primary reason why a certain someone chose to live there.

            Most people of course choose to live in a certain “zip code” because of its association with wealth, status and prestige, or because it has access to commuting options, or it is near the beach, or they grew up there – say like in Savin Hill or Southie. But it was once clearly pointed out to me that “numbers often belie other significance” and people who are not from here, when they move here, might choose to live in Sudbury by virtue of that alone. That comment from him “stayed” with me. Again, the reference to Sudbury, having had its historically significant zip code pointed out to me as a primary “motivator to move there” had merely a haunting ring to it, that is all. As such maybe the reasoning might be that the “terrorists” chose to operate from there as a base due to its numerical/symbolic significance, as well??? After all, Sudbury’s demographics would seem to suggest that a couple of young foreigners/terrorists wouldn’t blend so well there – even if they were pharmacists. In fact, they would stick out like a sore thumb – so why on earth would they choose “Sudbury” for a base of “jihad?” Does it all come down to something as odd as the “symbolic numbers” in the zip code after all?

            Accordingly, could other “target locations” for setting up bases of operation be somehow buried in other “numbers of symbolic significance” linked to area towns?

            Just a random thought. (The other thoughts I will keep to myself for now).

            1. Alex:
              I don’t think many of the jihadists would know much about 1776 but would probably prefer to live in Pasedena which is 91101. Or now 41513 which is in Belcher, Kentucky. I’d certainly prefer the former over 01776. Add I can say about numbers is sometimes they don’t add up.

  4. You have to be more creative when you title your posts. “Irresponsible Writing by Herald Columnist”?
    What’s next? “Sun Rises on Schedule?”

    But seriously, please feel free to veer away from being a strictly All-Whitey blog whenever you feel it’s appropriate. I understand your passion but that subject is most of the way through his sunset years and you may soon find that you have to change focus anyway.

    I enjoy your opinions, even though the legalese and inside-baseball code can be a bit dense at times, I’m picking it up (thank Google).

    1. Jeff:
      You are absolutely correct in saying I lacked creativity in calling the Herald irresponsible. I’ll try to do better next time.

      Thanks for enjoying the blog and I’ll try to cut down on the legal stuff but remember even when you run into the legal talk just ask yourself if it is making sense. If it isn’t, then ignore it because no matter how much the lawyers try to hide things it still has to come down to making sense or it is meaningless.

      I’ve thought of life after Whitey. Haven’t quite figured out what it will be yet. But there is a temptation to keep pointing to the faults and frailties in the criminal justice system in the hopes that things might improve and that the rights we used to have before 9/11 don’t get too trampled on as I see happening with the new police force, the Homeland Security Police. I’ll write about that soon if I can figure out what they do. That is unless they come and get me for daring to expose them.

  5. It appears that possibly the FBI in Boston is once again responsible for innocent US citizens murder to cover up their inefficiency or worse.

    The FBI had ample opportunity to ID bomber #1. His photos were readily available with his passport, immigration, Cambridge PD and the FBI own files. The agents that interviewed Tamerlan didn’t recognize him from the videos ???

    The FBI is spinning away to cover their involvement.

    Was Tamerlan an FBI informant gone bad ? Is that the real issue here?

    1. Notaboyo:

      There’s a good report on some of this in the Washington Post at http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/boston-case-highlights-limitations-of-us-counterterror-network/2013/05/04/9ece77e8-b368-11e2-bbf2-a6f9e9d79e19_print.html

      It probably raises as many questions as it answers but it does give an insight into the official FBI leak line. I hope to post on it soon.

      Others have raised the issue of Tamerlan being an informant. The FBI has yet to answer the question. But you are right, the FBI did have the chance with a little extra effort to stop this. I don’t see how that can be denied.

  6. Yes, a ruse, very likely, which would be why the FBI waited till Obama made his visit and was clear out of town, out of harms way before they released the footage, possibly knowing the Tsarnaev’s were still in Cambridge and knowing the mayhem that would ensue. BTW, did they ever release The Lord and Taylor footage across from bomb site #2 ? The video footage first released was from Whiskey’s on the next block between Fairfield and Gloucester and pictures from the general public at the actual bomb site. I do believe had the friends called the authorities Collier might be alive, then again, had they called the authorities, that would have most likely been the FBI they’d have been calling and that brings us back to square one – the FBI should have been monitoring the older brother which means the plot never would have/should have unfolded at all. God bless the victims. Yes, as has been said, Boston will be stronger, the marthon will be better next year, however, I think it’s more than unfair (words cannot describe) that innocent people lost their lives and were maimed when this never should have happened, it should have been stopped in the early stages, it should have been thwarted as soon as in the early stages of the Tsarnaev brothers thought process (when tipped off by the Russians) before a single component was even purchased to construct these bombs. Very sad . God bless the victims.

    1. Jan:
      You are right we must not forget the victims ,

      The best way to do that is to demand we be told the truth. All I see is a cloud of smoke as if we’re supposed to forget the FBI was told this guy lived among us and had become radicalized. There just can ‘t be that many radical Muslims in Boston that it is beyond the FBI’s ability to keep tracking them. How can you interview a person who has been identified as a radical and close out the case? Is it difficult to revisit it every few months? Yes, the FBI dropped the ball but no one will call it on it and Obama us already telling us all is well behind the curtain.

  7. Did you expect anything better from the Herald. All Carr has produced for decades is total fantasy or Mafia propaganda in his coverage of OC. Gelzinis is just as bad. 2. The FBI had to know who Tamerlan was when they had the press conference. They had to know he was a Cambridge resident. Why weren’t there hundreds of State Police in Cambridge looking for him. The most important fact is at what time did they decide the two people with the black back packs were the bombers. Was it Monday night, Tuesday or Wednesday? Within hours of their decision Tamerlan’s name should have surfaced. The press conference was a ruse to mislead the public and cover up their knowledge of the Russian tip. Very good post. Another example of the malignancy of the media.

    1. N.
      I really should have expected that from the Herald. Has there ever been a newspaper in America that has been so dependent on one person as the Herald is on Carr?
      2. The FBI is into covering up its trail there’s a lot of leaks coming out through friendly media types from the usual “unidentified source.” You know there’s a BIG problem with Obama running around telling us all is well. Well it isn’t unless we know the truth.
      3. I’m at a loss why the media won’t demand an accounting about these things. Maybe the new boys in town the HOMELAND SECURITY POLICE are now editing the news.

  8. Very good post. If the FBI did its job, the photos would never have been released and Sean Collier might be alive. People also seem to forget that the friends had no affirmative obligation to turn in their friend. They aren’t facing charges for that. I’d also like to know who DID call after seeing the photos — I find it hard to believe that nobody did.

    1. Pam:
      There is much that we still do not know. The FBI is in full cover-up mode. The important matters are not being addressed. Could this have been prevented? By the way, did you notice the new police force in town? Standing outside the courthouse during the press conference with the accessory after the fact defense attorneys were the HOMELAND SECURITY POLICE. Do you have any idea who they are and what they do?
