Formerly focused on "law enforcement", the Federal Bureau of Investigation has since 2013 been officially prioritising "national security". Director for life J. Edgar Hoover used it for multiple purposes over the decades - most notably muckraking for information to be used later as blackmail material.

Official Narrative

A screenshot of an FBI game to promote the story about vulnerable people being "radicalized" into "violent extremism" by exposure to "fake news" from independent media outlets on the internet.

The 'primary mission' of the FBI, formerly "law enforcement" was noted to have silently changed in 2013 to "national security". FBI spokesman Paul Bresson stated dryly that "When our mission changed after 9/11, our fact sheet changed to reflect that".[1] [2] A webpage posted at cve.fbi.gov in February 2016 claimed that "It’s the FBI’s primary responsibility — working with its many partners — to protect the nation from attacks by violent extremists."[3]

Problems

The FBI has a roster of 15,000 spies who not only infiltrate and report back information, but actively assist and encourage people to commit "terrorism", so that the FBI can then catch them. In 2012 Project Censored reported that the "majority of terrorist plots in the United States" are actually incited by FBI agents, and reports that such informants receive cash rewards of up to $100,000 per case.[4][5]

Origins

Hoover-JEdgar-LOC.jpg

J. Edgar Hoover

Full article: J. Edgar Hoover

More than anyone else, J. Edgar Hoover was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director until his death in 1972 at age 77. Hoover built the FBI into a large crime-fighting agency, and used it as a an information gathering apparatus to collect blackmail material on political dissenters, activists and political leaders.[6] According to President Harry S. Truman, Hoover transformed the FBI into his private secret police force; Truman stated that "we want no Gestapo or secret police. FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him".[7] However, biographer Kenneth D. Ackerman considers these kind of statements to be hyperbole.[8]

Public relations

Russ Baker wrote in 2014 that "What the FBI excelled at, especially under its long-time chief J. Edgar Hoover, was a non-stop public relations campaign that portrayed the agency as a heroic band of G-men who skillfully tracked and felled dangerous criminals."[9]

"After a few tentative steps into the realm of publicity during the late 1920s, the Bureau became a key element of FDR’s New Deal war on crime in the mid-1930s. Two journalists, independent author Courtney Ryley Cooper and Neil (Rex) Collier, collaborated with Hoover and his top lieutenants to create a template for FBI news stories emphasizing responsibility and science and featuring Hoover as America’s always careful and reliable top law enforcement officer. With the creation of the public relations-oriented Crime Records Section in 1935 and the establishment of clear lines of public communication authority, Hoover had both a public relations message and a management team to amplify and enforce it."[10]

Activities

A video by James Corbett

In the days of Edgar Hoover, the FBI was widely feared as a tool of blackmail. In the 21st century, however, its activities are more blatant.

Child pornography

The FBI has run child pornography websites. The ACLU obtained documents indicating that it was "actually authorized to takeover 23 child-pornography websites in addition to The Playpen."[11]

Entrapment

The FBI coerces thousands of young people, as the price for settling a minor legal problem, into dangerous careers as an informants.[12] Sarah Stillman, writing in The New Yorker' that "The snitch-based system has proved notoriously unreliable, fuelling wrongful convictions".[12]

Mass Surveillance

Since at least 2010, the FBI has been planting hidden microphones in a range of places from light fixtures in courthouses to carparks, bushes and bus stops.[13] January 2016 guidelines (based on the UK's widely criticised Prevent programme) told high schools across the USA to report students who criticize government policies and “western corruption” as potential future terrorists.[14]

Assassinations

Although the FBI tracks how many police officers die in the line of duty, it keeps no such record for how many civilians are killed by police each year.[15]


Statements

Matt Connolly, a former Deputy District Attorney noted in 2015 that the FBI does not record its interviews. Instead, "two FBI agents ask questions and listen to the answers—without tape recording or obtaining a certified transcript. Instead, they return to their office and, based on their recollection and any notes they may have taken during the interview, write up a summary of what transpired. Summaries are, in most cases, written hours later, sometimes even the following day." This record, inaccurate as it might be, then becomes the "official record of what was said during the interview."[16]

Investigations

September 11, 2001

Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI, asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Ossama Bin Laden's "Most Wanted" web page,replied that “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.” [17]

3 of the 5 "Dancing Israelis" on Israeli TV

On September 11, 2001, the FBI arrested 5 Israelis spotted in Manhattan behaving suspiciously. They referred to the group as the 'High Fivers' (after their apparent glee at the 9/11 attacks) but who are elsewhere known as the "Dancing Israelis". The group, which included two Mossad agents, were detained for 70 days and then deported. Three of them later stated on Israeli TV that they were in New York City that morning "to document the event".

2001 Anthrax attacks

Full article: Rated 4/5 2001 Anthrax attacks

The 2001 Anthrax attacks prompted the most expensive investigation in the FBI's history, costing around $100,000,000.[18] This blamed Bruce Ivins, a "lone nut" who had just been found dead, avoiding the need for a trial. Richard Lambert, the FBI officer who was put in charge of the investigation, says that the investigation suffered from intense compartmentalisation and lack of critical resources (such as bioweapons experts). He sued the FBI in 2015, alleging that they were concealing evidence that could have exonerated Ivins.[19][20][21]

Vince Foster's Death

Full article: Vince Foster/Death

The US Congress concluded that the death of Vince Foster was a suicide.

Non-investigations

FOIA documents have revealed telling cases of FBI failures to investigate.

Dallas occupy plot

Full article: Rated 4/5 Dallas occupy plot

FBI documents uncovered in 2013 through FOIA reveal that the FBI either turned a blind eye to or abetted a plot to assassinate leaders of the Dallas Occupy movement.[22][23]

Loyd Jowers

Full article: Loyd Jowers

In 1993 Loyd Jowers confessed to involvement in the assassination of Martin Luther King. In spite of this, the FBI took no steps to investigate him. In 1999, a jury unanimously found him guilty of involvement in the killing, but the FBI still took no action, according to a FOIA response.[24]

Organization Structure

FBI-organizational-chart.jpg The FBI Directorate of Intelligence used to be part of the NSB but as of 2014 operates as a separate organizational entity within FBI.
