The Country’s in the Very Best of Hands

Posted on | February 22, 2013 | 9 Comments

Good thing there aren’t any criminals to investigate:

It sounds like the plot of a bad movie: bugging your boss’ office. Sending naked photos around to co-workers. Sexting in the office. Paying for sex in a massage parlor.
But it all happened in the federal agency whose motto is “fidelity, bravery, integrity” — the FBI.
These lurid details are outlined in confidential internal disciplinary reports obtained by CNN that were issued to FBI employees as a way to deter misconduct.

Via Memeorandum.

    Even if Hoover had worn women’s clothing (which he didn’t) this sort of thing would never have occurred when he was around.

    Do any one of these to an FBI agent and see that you get 10 yrs in a federal prison, but the sexting agent only got a 10 day off penalty (vacation).
    And these are the people who are protecting us from world terrorism? Ohhhh, I feel safe.

    And these people, and their colleagues are the only ones in the US who should have firearms. Because the rest of us are not as responsible.

    Something about this administration inspires its employees to hire hookers ‘n stuff. It’s almost like they’re partying before the end arrives.

    Heh. And these are the folks that called ME a crook. Time for a flush, I smell a large turd.

    There are many,many, many great FBI agents, but we have unfortunately been finding out during the last 20years that the myth of the FBI that was created Hoover, is just that, a myth.

    It’s just another bureaucratic frat party

    It’s been running on momentum from the rep created by Hoover’s FBI. The momentum is running out and the trash is getting uncovered. As pointed out above, Hoover would not have tolerated this kind of behavior. he would have dismissed them and inflicted the maximum amount of shame in doing it. The Lib weenies,as they have done with everything else, have worked to tear down what previous generations built.

    QM is quite right, Matthew. Read the chapters in G. Gordon Liddy’s autobio, Will, about what it took to become and stay an FBI Agent under Mr. Hoover – quite demanding.

    In fact, read GGL’s memoir for the pure enjoyment of it.
