Posted on 05/06/2008 10:31:06 AM PDT by HAL9000
WASHINGTON -- Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided the Office of Special Counsel here, seizing computers and documents belonging to the agency chief Scott Bloch and staff.
More than a dozen FBI agents served grand jury subpoenas shortly after 10 a.m., shutting down the agency's computer network and searching its offices, as well as Mr. Bloch's home. Employees said the searches appeared focused on alleged obstruction of justice by Mr. Bloch during the course of an 2006 inquiry into his conduct in office.

This is about allegations that Bloch hired “Geeks on Call” to erase some computer disk drives.
WTF is this all about? I can’t open the article as I don’t belong to the WSJ club.
What was this guy investigating?
Another satisfied Microsoft customer.
Scott Bloch’s web page -
I’m not a subscriber, so I can’t get any more details. Could you summarize it for us? Thanks.
According to the wiki on Bloch, from the very start he has been the target of the homosexual lobby, who have done their level best to destroy him.
This goes to show how vehement this lobby can be. Truthfully, it says more about their strength as a special interest group than it does for any “agenda”. Sexuality doesn’t matter, only money and power.
So, this was his personal computer in his home? Imagine the trouble he’d be in if he’d asked a government employed FBI computer geek to fix it. It’s a no win situation.
Please see #7 above.
If Bloch was destroying evidence and obstructing justice, I don’t care who exposes it or their agenda.
I realize the need for excerpts, but posting an article that requires membership is a waste of space and time. I won't sign up with any of these news sites just to read their stupid articles. I wish the people who post links to sites that require membership would at least put that info in their post.
If I were intending to destroy electronic evidence, I probably wouldn’t be using “Geeks on Call”. They probably have no concept of how a file system really works, so they wouldn’t know how to eliminate all traces of the data on the disk drive.
How about a heavy duty industrial sized magnet?
I found an article from a different source and posted the link in #7.
Should we slow down news coverage because it is unfair to non-subscribers?
Devices called “bulk erasers” exist for this purpose.
remember fbi raid on curt weldon two weeks before election?
turned out to be a nonstory but it costs weldon his job which
is what clinton’s wanted. maybe this guy is guilty, but i do not
Interesting, he was also responsible for defending whistleblowers.
Next we'll hear rumors, speculation, accusations, pundits that discuss it on TV and radio, hearsay, “expert” testimony from bystanders, former friends, ex girl friends........ When the dust settles he'll be crushed and the fact that he'll be found innocent won't matter either. I am very skeptical of these sorts of things, they tend to reek of political motivation when you look behind the scene, which I can't in this case.
If stuff suddenly appears in the media and there is no source, no real face associated with it, if you suddenly get this trickle of negative crap which is all baseless popping up everywhere in the news, then the red BS flag should go up. -IMHO
Based on personal experience, neither do I.
Paybacks a bitch.
LOL, look at ABC’s headline!
FBI Raids Bush Official’s Office
Can ABC get any dumber? It’s an office that investigates the White House but is required to be nominated by the White House and confirmed by the Senate under the law.
I wonder how many lives they need to ruin, how many laws they need to pass, and how much cultural damage they need to do before they realize, that it's not working. How long before they realize that the nagging anxiety, mental discomfort and shame and guilt that drives them is not being caused by everyone else? How long before they realize that their problems and suffering are coming from within?
I doubt that such a realization would help much because if you examine homosexuals, you find that a much higher percentage of them than the population as a whole have *other* problems.
Not just mental, but physical as well. Often they mask such problems by assuming they have a sexual origin, when that is far from the case.
Unfortunately, they are strongly averse to having a study done to find out what else they should become aware of as common problems. And in truth, there are those that would use such information to assert that homosexuals are defectives.
It does point out what you said, however, that projecting personal problems onto others is ineffective in finding remedies to those problems. But projection seems to afflict a LOT of people.
And being a Republican shouldn't be a free pass for abuse of power. It's about time he's gone, whether guilty of this accusation or not.
Don’t know if this has been posted, but check this out:
[That’s quite an abrupt change from the previous OSC special counsel, Clinton appointee Elaine Kaplan — a union-friendly, open lesbian. It’s not surprising that many of the staffers who liked Kaplan don’t like Bloch. What is amazing is that the current and former OSC employees who bring these allegations fear retaliation from the very office established to protect federal employees from such retaliation. “I really do think he’ll take reprisal action” against subordinates for speaking to the Phoenix, says one current employee, who asked that his name not be used. “Folks are really quite terrified.”]
They’re “terrified”. LOL. What a crock of bs. This is an obvious hit job. Now the MSM is trying desperately to cover up this angle (read latest on Yahoo News) and is making the Bush admin look like the boogeyman targeting him as Bloch was investigating some in the administration. Very clever, but not quite good enough.
See my post #30.
Make sure you read the comments after the article.
Posters on this site are spreading rumours that Bloch is a wacko, anti-gay, anti-Semetic Catholic bigot who is part of a secret, worldwide cabal of Catholics who want to take over the world. LOL.
(shakes head) Some days, I really wonder how the world still manages to function.
If he let those “Geeks On Call” luzers anywhere near a computer containing confidential government documents, that’s reason enough to fire him and prosecute him for criminal negligence right there.
doubt that.. it is so easy a caveman can do it.
