"A Muslim doesn't record another Muslim"
Muslim FBI agent, Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, refuses to tape Muslim suspects.
Has anyone noticed that when it comes to REAL Issues in this Country, and the World: our so-called "Free Press" is Blind, Deaf, and Dumb; and is anything but Free? 
The Clinton-Reno Justice Department refused to allow two veteran FBI agents assigned to the anti-terrorist probe to investigate a key figure tied to Osama bin Laden.

According to ABC News' Brian Ross today, two agents told him they were ordered to stop investigations into a suspected terror cell linked to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network and the Sept. 11 attacks. 

In an investigation of a powerful Saudi Arabian businessman, Yassin al-Kadi, who is one of 12 Saudi businessmen suspected of funneling millions of dollars to al-Qaeda and who had extensive business and financial ties in Chicago.

Assigned to the case was FBI agent Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, who is Muslim; he refused to secretly record one of Yassin al-Kadi's suspected associates, who was also Muslim. Gamal Abdel-Hafiz said: "a Muslim doesn't record another Muslim."

"He wouldn't have any problems interviewing or recording somebody who wasn't a Muslim, but he could never record another Muslim."

Far from being reprimanded, Gamal Abdel-Hafiz was promoted to one of the FBI's most important anti-terrorism posts, the American Embassy in Saudi Arabia, to handle investigations for the FBI in that Muslim country.

Democrat Robert C. Byrd, Senator from West Virginia; former member, Ku Klux Klan.

Fox News Sunday: "There are white Niggers. I've seen a lot of white Niggers in my time." "I'm gonna use that word. But we all just need to work together to make our country a better country." 

In a 1940s letter renouncing his membership: "[I will never serve in the military] with a Negro by my side." "I should die a thousand times and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by Race Mongrels, a throwback to the Blackest Specimen of the Wilds."

---US Legal System learns from Bishops Virtual "Zero Tolerance" Policy
U.S. Catholic bishops were adamant Saturday that they have established the "zero-tolerance" policy on clergy sexual abuse that Catholics had demanded. 

In releasing the newly formed policy Friday afternoon, the bishops stopped short of calling for the immediate defrocking of priests guilty of child abuse as victims had demanded. 

"We did the second strictest thing," said Bishop Donald Trautman of Erie, Pa., "and what we did effectively took these priests out of ministry."

Officer, you are hereby sentenced to, giving back half the money you took; go and sin no more my son. 

Oh yea speaking of sinning, son, tell your mother I'll be home a little late tonight.

---Pilots find way around Hand Gun Restrictions
Pilots of U.S. commercial airlines who will not be allowed to carry hand guns into the cockpit of their aircraft to deter or defend against hijackers, have come up with a solution some say is actually preferable.
---CIA to help FBI upgrade Anti-terrorism Skills
The CIA is dispatching personnel to help the FBI Headquarters' senior management to learn to grab its Ass with both hands, and to upgrade its ability to analyze intelligence and criminal data for use in preventing terrorist acts.

More than 25 agency analysts and at least one senior manager from the CIA's Directorate of Intelligence will assist the FBI director, Robert Mueller, in reshaping the bureau into an agency more focused on counterterrorism, and less on retirement perks. Yea I believe that.

threats that he failed to warn the public about. 

"Maybe it would be better for [Ashcroft] to

----Dan Rather is Dinning on Feet Again!
Rather claims: Bush Issued Bogus Terror Alert to Cover Up 9-11 Bungle
Dan Rather accused the Bush administration of issuing an unwarranted FBI terrorist alert to New York City primarily to distract from questions about its handling of pre-Sept. 11 intelligence information.

Rather said he "believed" his network's report that the White House received a CIA briefing before 9-11 on possible al-Qaeda hijackings prompted the administration to issue the alert for political damage control.

"I believe the president and the people around him were surprised and peeved that the information got out last week with [CBS's] report that President Bush had been briefed about some things that, in retrospect after Sept. 11, would indicate that, well, maybe somebody should have done something."

Hey Dan, not everyone reacts the way you Would.

  ---- ----Feds Nix Pistol-Packing Pilots
 Pilots of U.S. commercial airlines will not be allowed to carry firearms on board their aircraft to deter or defend against hijackers, a senior Transportation Department official said Tuesday.

Under Secretary of Transportation for Security John "Can't-Draw" Magaw, testifying before a Senate committee, said, "Utilizing the experience of my 40 years as a night watchman at Sears, and consulting with all the 'best people,' both of them, I will not authorize firearms in the cockpit."

"Don't they know by now that we will go after them over anything, and everything?"

---FBI 'Super Squad' on Terror to be known as "Freeh Dumb of Information Act."
A new FBI "super squad," in Washington, will lead all major terrorism investigations worldwide under a plan to remake the agency in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The new effort will include the hiring of hundreds of FNGs as agents and analysts as well as the creation of an Office of Intelligence, headed by a former Used Car & Storm Door Salesman.

It was revealed that agents no longer must remove their shoes to enumerate the agency's accomplishments.

Pipe Bombs Found in Texas, Colorado
OMAHA, Neb. –– A pipe bomb was found in the Texas Panhandle and it appears to be from the same source as 17 others found in the Midwest and Colorado, the FBI said Tuesday.

The latest bomb was accompanied by a letter, the FBI said. Most of the earlier bombs were accompanied by anti-government notes that warned "More 'attention getters' are on the way."

"It's another pipe bomb. It looks similar to the others," said FBI agent Larry Holmquist in Omaha. "Upon our initial inspection, it appears it would be from the same source."

The Catholic Church will decree Castration to insure priests remain Celibate
The Catholic Church has reconsidered the impact of enforced Celibacy on its priests. 

In a unprecedented change of doctrine, the Holy See will decree that to make celibacy less stressful, and to reduce the temptation toward pedophilia, all new priests will undergo surgical castration. 

As proof of castration, priests will wear the Medal of St. Castration around their neck, and will wear on their Cossack, their dried and preserved Scrotum.

As atonement, those priests who have been implicated in acts against children will also undergo castration, but without benefit of anesthesia.

Russia Warned U.S. About FBI Agent Robert Hanssen in 1993

A federal study on security inside the FBI discloses that Russia formally complained to the U.S. government after Hanssen tried to give U.S. secrets in 1993 to a high-ranking military intelligence officer.

The FBI also has said Hanssen's brother-in-law, an FBI agent, warned his supervisors in Chicago as early as 1990 that Hanssen might have been spying for the Russians because he noticed suspiciously large amounts of cash in Hanssen's home.

Airport Security: FAA hiring a Few Good Men
It seems as though the Federal Aviation Administration's and DOT's operative assumption is that there's an equal chance that any person, including pilots and crewmembers, who boards a plane is a potential hijacker. That's why FAA and DOT security regulations require that everyone, including pilots and crew, be searched. 

They appearently believe that a 88-year-old grandmother, carrying her knitting needles, would hijack a plane!  We can't put anything past Washington's bureaucrats: they must think that a hijacker with no hijacking tools might search the plane, find granny's knitting needles and stab his way through the steel reinforced cockpit doors.

Israeli Forces Enter Arafat's HQ
RAMALLAH, West Bank ––  Israeli forces entered Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's headquarters on Friday and exchanged fire with his security guards, Palestinian officials said.  The raid came as Israel's Cabinet formally declared Arafat an enemy and said it would isolate him, in response to a string of attacks on Israeli civilians by Palestinian militants.

A Palestinian spokeswoman did say that they had made a request to the Israeli commander for a change of fresh underware for Chairman Arafat.

In an article written before the ceremony, the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported: "It is annoying that they are bringing the Ground Zero flag. ... It doesn't have anything to do with the Olympics."

Bill Clinton unwitting victim of Dyslectic Taxidermist
Buddy, the "First Dog,"  was mowed down by an SUV a week ago when he escaped through the front door of the Clintons' Chappaqua, N.Y., mansion and began chasing cars.

His chisled likeness is so lifelike that a photo released Wednesday gave rise to speculation that the Clintons sent the real Buddy to a taxidermist.

"They REALLY had that poor doggie stuffed?" wondered one member of the website FreeRepublic.com after a photo of the Buddy statue was posted.

But Clinton Library Foundation Director Skip Rutherford said that Buddy's adult likeness had been sculpted in 1997 when he was a puppy, based on an artist's conception of what the full-grown dog would look like. 

Clinton's former Transportation Secretary Rodney Slater said, "I warned the Clintons about those Damn SUVs." 

Bush's Booted Bodyguard Lashes Out at American Airlines while Holding his Breath
January 4, 2002 -- A lawyer for a Secret Service agent accused an American Airlines pilot of kicking the agent off a flight because he is an Arab-American. 

But the pilot of American's Flight 363 said he refused to fly the agent because he became loud and abusive after his identity was questioned. 

The agent, who is a member President Bush's security detail, was booted from the flight at Baltimore airport on Christmas Day as he was trying to travel to the president's ranch in Crawford, Texas. 

"The only reason why he was not allowed on that plane is because he is an American of Arab descent," said his lawyer, "Pure and simple, this is a case of discrimination." 

The agent, identified in published reports as Walied Shater, is demanding an apology from the airlines and civil-rights training for its flight crews.

Reid, 28, requested a court-appointed attorney and was ordered held pending a bail hearing Friday. If convicted, he could be sentenced to 20 years in prison. The FBI said more charges are likely. The explosives devices detected in preliminary tests on Reid's sneakers were functional and could have caused serious damage if detonated, said the Special Agent in Charge of the Boston FBI office.

Sounds Like We Got Their Attention: With Cut Flowers
After U.S. forces dropped a 15,000 lb. "daisy cutter" bomb on suspected al-Qaeda positions, a flurry of "panicked radio and satellite-phone calls" ensued. American intelligence monitored those calls and discovered that Osama bin Laden was near the blast and is now on the run (presumably stopping first to clean out his underwear).

One report said the remaining fighters have split into two groups and that surveillance is following the movements of both. These vicious warriors who vowed to "fight to the death" radioed to the alliance leaders, "Please don't fight us, we want to surrender."

A Maryland town in the very same county that tried banning cigarette smoking in homes, has now told Santa Claus to stay away from a public Christmas tree lighting!

Smokers that fail to properly ventilate buildings, would face fines of up to $750 per violation if they failed to take steps to mitigate the problem.

One observer remarked, "today secondhand smoke, tomorrow flatulence."
