Charges against FBI deemed not secret
Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, February 23, 2005 | By Shaun Waterman

UNITED PRESS INTERNATIONAL

The Department of Justice has abandoned its argument that charges made by a fired FBI translator are secret, paving the way for a court case involving charges of incompetence, poor security and possible espionage in the translation unit of the bureau's Washington field office. At issue are accusations by Sibel Edmonds, a contract translator for the FBI hired in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, attacks. Mrs. Edmonds, fluent in Turkish and in the Farsi language spoken in Iran, reported that many of those hired to work in the unit barely could speak English; that they left secure laptop computers lying around while they went to lunch; that they took classified material home; and that one co-worker had undeclared contacts with a foreign organization that was under FBI surveillance.

This is bad. Very bad. Get the damned arabs and muslims out of the FBI. Hire those Jewish translators they refused, a couple of years ago, instead.

Why aren't these contractors supervised very, very closely? Another breach of security.

While I agree with you about the Jewish translators, when it comes to the moon-worshipping heathen murderous b*st*rds, I am leaning towards the "kill them all after we get what little they can tell us".

They do not respect our society, our definition of G_d, nor our tolerance for those who cannot understand or accept our concept of G_d.

They only want to conquer and subjugate us. It's the middle ages all over again, with a new continent thrown into the mix.

NEVER FORGET that the Crusades were a RESPONSE to muslim aggression through the Holy Land(s). Spain (stalwart ally against the horde until 2004) didn't rid themselves of the Moors until 1492 (What year was that?).

There was an article on FR, 1-2 years ago, about the FBI refusing to hire Israeli translators in favor of arabs and muslims.

Pollard is the spy in prison, isn't he?
