Ridge Randy Weaver's Idaho cabin - August 1992 a federal force
of US Marshals, FBI and BATF agents conducted a murderous assault
on the homestead of Randy and Vicki Weaver, resulting in the deaths
of Vicki and their son, Sammy. This incident is highly controversial,
and has raised serious questions about the abusive use of force
by federal agencies against US citizens.
Sept. 11, 2001 U.S. attacked
after numerous lapses discovered in FBI terrorism investigations.
Special Agent John O'Neill was the FBI's leading expert on Al
Qaeda. But to people at FBI headquarters he was too much of a maverick
and they stopped listening to him.
alters course after 9/11 attacks -- For the FBI 2001 embarrassments
included Robert Hanssen selling secrets to Russia, shoddy record-keeping
delayed the execution of Timothy McVeigh, and a withering report
by the Justice Department on the FBI's handling of the Wen Ho Lee
espionage case. But Sept. 11 brought about changes in the FBI.

FBI agent Robert Hanssen
pleaded guilty to espionage and conspiracy to commit espionage -
FBI agent charged with espionage -- Robert Philip Hanssen, a
27-year veteran FBI charged with providing classified information
to Russian intelligence agents. Hanssen may have confirmed information
given to the Russians by CIA agent Aldrich Ames. 10 US agents were
executed in Russia as a result of the information Ames passed on.
Sue Galey, ex-stripper says Hanssen showered her with gifts
and asked for nothing in return. CNN
Philip Hanssen a counterintelligence agent for the FBI, appeared
devoted to the crusade against Communism, however, he sold secrets
to the Soviet Union and Russia from 1980 to 1999. Without his wife's
knowledge, he shared nude pictures of her with a friend, and repeatedly
arranged for the friend to watch him have sex with his wife.
the FBI -- The FBI is a menace to the life, liberty and property
of decent people. The fiasco with the McVeigh trial evidence wasn't
the worst of it. The discovery of thousands of pages of documents
which should have been surrendered to the defense, but never were,
may embarrass the FBI, but it won't destroy lives. For the heavy
hitter stuff, you have to look to the imprisonment of Joseph Salvati
for 30 years, even though the Feds knew he was innocent, or the
shielding of James ''Whitey'' Bulger and Stephen Flemmi while they
engaged in extortion and murder. Once you look at the full picture,
then you know why the FBI should be disbanded.
J. Bulger, known as Whitey, once the underworld boss of Boston
-- His road to violence began with beatings and sexual abuse as
a child bounced from one foster home to another. After being raped
during a drunken stupor by an Army recruiting officer, he turned
to his life of violent crime. By 31, he boasts of a criminal record
9 pages long that included ''attempted murder, assault with a deadly
weapon, mayhem, breaking and entering and rape,'' although he claims
the rape charges were bum raps. Whitey's corrupting of the FBI in
Boston made him a national story. He worked both sides, and as a
valuable informant had the Boston office so under his control that
he could send an innocent man to prison for a murder he committed,
all with the FBI's knowledge. Whitey disappeared in 1995; there
is a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest.
Soldier: My Life as an Enforcer for Whitey Bulger and the Irish
Mob by Edward Mackenzie, Phyllis Karas, Ross A. Muscato
-- In terms of relentless ruthlessness and its obsession
with the almighty dollar, the Irish mob of Boston's James "Whitey"
Bulger could match its New York counterparts hit for hit.
Edward J. MacKenzie, Jr. (a.k.a. Eddie Mac) was a
drug dealer, enforcer, and key associate of Bulger. Mac's account of those
years has more gory details per page than the entire
last season of The Sopranos.In exchange for his tips,
the Feds turned a blind eye toward Eddie Mac's crimes. Bulger himself was an informant for the FBI.
Sinatra Files: The Secret FBI Dossier by Tom Kuntz, Phil
Kuntz -- Frank Sinatra died in 1998. A 1,275-page dossier of decades of FBI surveillance
remained from Hoover's belief that Sinatra had mob
or Communist ties. This details Hoover's search through
Sinatra's past for a bogus medical deferment from military
service. The FBI cooperated with journalists looking for dirt
