Ex-FBI Agent Indicted in Mob Killings
Las Vegas Sun ^ | March 30, 2006 | Tom Hays

A retired FBI agent was indicted on murder charges Thursday for allegedly taking bribes from a mobster to supply him with inside information that led to four underworld slayings in Brooklyn.

R. Lindley DeVecchio, 65, was arrested in a case of "confidential leaks, payoffs and death" dating back two decades, District Attorney Charles Hynes said.

DeVecchio pleaded not guilty and was released on $1 million bail. He did not speak at his arraignment. One of the two alleged mob hitmen behind the slayings was jailed without bail. The other was in Florida, awaiting extradition.

Author Peter Lance wrote about DeVecchio's lawlessness in "Cover-Up". Lance's book contains the actual FBI documents proving that the Clinton DOJ suppressed evidence that convicted 1993 World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef was planning to blow up a commercial airliner in the United States from prison in 1996 through communications with his associates when TWA 800 exploded in July 1996 over Long Island. The reason for the suppression, Lance argues, is that the witness against Yousef was a prisonmate named Greg Scrapa, Jr., and the Clinton DOJ did not want to give Scarpa any credibility because Scarpa was telling people about corrupt FBI agents in NY and the Clinton DOJ did not want those FBI agents prosecuted and did not want the possible unraveling of gangland convictions that had been obtained, even though it appeard that some of those convictions were wrong. 9/11 Commissioner and Clinton appointee, Jamie Gorelick participated in the supression and never told the FAA that investigated TWA 800 or the 9/11 Commission that investigated terrorism leading to 9/11 about the possible link between Yousef and TWA 800.

Again, I urge everybody to read Lance's books, "Cover-Up" and the previous book, "1,000 Years for Revenge".
