    So, why did you join the CIA? To be mobster Henry Hill, shoved into an Agency witness protection program? Except, unlike Hill, it isn't you who's being protected. It's the president, higher-ups, and the Agency itself. You -- you're more a prisoner than a pampered witness. Remember the 60s' cult classic Brit TV series, The Prisoner? Once you're in the Agency, you're never out. You being pressured into signing a nondisclosure agreement with the Agency about that awful night in Benghazi. What was the date? Oh, yes, September 11, 2012. The night U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens was brutalized and killed...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department failed to provide the names of some terrorists in the witness protection program to the center that maintains the government's watch list used to keep dangerous people off airline flights, the department's inspector general said in a report Thursday. As a result of the department's failure to properly share information, some in the witness protection program who were on the "no-fly" list were allowed to travel on commercial flights, the federal watchdog said. "It was possible for known or suspected terrorists to fly on commercial airplanes in or over the United States and evade...

    Today marks the four year anniversary of when ATF Special Agent Jay Dobyns’ house was burned to the ground. The blaze was set to his home while his wife and children were sleeping inside at 3 a.m. As a refresher, Dobyns is a 25-year ATF veteran and worked undercover in the Hells Angels gang for two years in what was known as “Operation Black Biscuit.” When he got out after putting dozens of the Angels in prison, members of the gang in coordination with hard criminals in prisons around the country, issued death threats against him and his family. These...
  • Keith Olbermann: Paid $10 Million to Lose Viewers

    Keith Olbermann is not in the witness protection program, but he might as well be. His show on Al Gore’s Current TV (America’s least watched network) has lost nearly a third of its viewers in four months. Pretty impressive result for $10 million a year. That’s just his salary. Countdown with Keith Olbermann was a major draw when it was on MSNBC. On January 21, the network took a big hit when Olbermann announced on air that that would be his last show for them. Then in June, Current launched Olbermann and Countdown. It was no surprise that Olbermann drew...

    The outing of an Icelandic woman as the snitch who dimed out Southie mobster James “Whitey” Bulger could put her in danger and may have a chilling effect on other witnesses who could think twice before coming forward, former prosecutors warn. The FBI — which vowed confidentiality to the tipster — also could take a hit if it comes out that the agency was involved in the leak, experts say. The FBI did not return calls yesterday. The woman’s identity was made public yesterday in a Boston Globe story on Bulger’s life of the lam. Her background, photo, husbands, career...

    MEXICO CITY — Gunmen burst in to a Starbucks coffee shop Tuesday and killed a former policeman who was a protected witness in a drug corruption case, the second death of a high-profile witness in Mexico in less than two weeks. Edgar Bayardo was gunned down in the upper middle-class Del Valle neighborhood of the capital, and a man with him was severely wounded, city prosecutor Jaime Slomianski Aguilar said. Another customer who apparently had nothing to do with Bayardo also was wounded. Shell casings — numbered by police at up to 23 — lay on the shop floor between...

    Multi-millionaire dog receives death threats A dog left Ł6million by her late owner has been moved to a safe house after receiving death threats. Trouble, a small white Maltese, inherited her fortune from property and hotel billionaire Leona Helmsley. The dog came out significantly better in its owner's will than members of the Helmsley family - two of her grandchildren received nothing. But the so-called Queen of Mean's multi-million dollar trust fund for Trouble may have backfired. The New York Post reports that Trouble's new guardians have received around two dozen death threats directed at the bitch. Two months ago,...

    Informer tells of corrupt Mexico October 25, 2007 By Jerry Seper - An informant who worked for U.S. authorities for more than four years says government, police and military authorities in Mexico have been corrupted by drug smugglers, often carrying out kidnappings and killings on the orders of drug cartel bosses. The accusations are outlined in sworn testimony before a U.S. immigration judge by Guillermo Eduardo Ramirez Peyro, a former Mexican police officer who was paid $224,000 for information U.S. anti-drug agents used to convict dozens of high-ranking Mexican drug traffickers. Ramirez told U.S. Immigration Judge Joseph R. Dierkes in...

    Michael Schiavo's lawyer is giving a statement live I believe at the courthouse. First he calls on people to pressure teh republican 9 NOTto support legislation to save Terri.Next he says nurse who is on tv stating Michael harmed Terri "probably" is doing this because Michael was so demanding of great treatment for Terri. That sounds totally illogical. He doesn't answer her charges except to say they are ridiculous.He just filed a new brief and has another brief due in a half hour he is about to take some questions.Michael's attorney is a real ideologue he attacked many people who...

    SADDAM’S deputy PM Tariq Aziz is pleading to move to Britain. The schemer has told his US captors he will reveal all about the Iraqi regime in exchange for a new identity and cushy life here.Cigar-smoking Aziz, 67, was Saddam’s best-known mouthpiece and condemned the UK. Now he wants to live here because he is terrified of being executed by Iraqis and is desperate to dodge US strict justice.Aziz, who gave himself up on Thursday, is the most senior Saddam aide caught so far.Human rights groups last night said: “The guy is a murderous scumbag and we don’t want him...
