The Justice Department’s inspector general has concluded that a senior FBI official created the impression of witness-tampering during a discrimination lawsuit brought against the bureau by a disabled Army veteran.
Teresa Carlson, who is currently an FBI acting deputy assistant director, showed “extremely poor judgment” in her statements to Special Agent Mark Crider, a subordinate who was being deposed in the case, the inspector general found.
Crider was called to testify last year in a lawsuit brought by the veteran who had been disqualified from agent training in 2011 because of concerns about his prosthetic left hand.
The veteran, Justin Slaby of Stafford County, Va., won the case last August and resumed training at Quantico in June. When he graduates in October, he will be the first FBI agent with a prosthetic hand.
According to a redacted report by the office of the inspector general, Crider said Carlson told him in April 2013 that “it would be in my best interest to come down on the side of the FBI.” [...]
Slaby’s left hand was blown off by a defective “flash-bang” grenade in a training accident in Georgia in 2004 between overseas deployments. He served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. He left the Army in 2005, earned a college degree and in 2009 applied to the FBI and was offered a job.
Wait for it, last sentence of the video. It says “we are committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all”. This video was made in 2013 and I saw it yesterday on T.V.
The Constitutional duty of the U.S. Navy, and the rest of the military, is to ensure for the “common defense” of the United States and its people, it is not to be committed to the “fair treatment of all”.
In the course of this constitutional duty, the Navy may have to kill people and break things, and quite frankly not be fair to people or things that get in the way of this obligation.
Indeed, seeking to ensure the “fair treatment of all” will ensure that they do not adequately provide for the common defense. As we see with the case of James Foley, dithering around, thinking about who you might offend by acting, ensured that Foley would not be rescued.
Fairness is a direct result of the policy our commander-in-chief, a policy which will endanger our military and can lead to failure, no matter how fine the soldiers.
Moonbat heads explode. Teachers are supposed to teach not act as law enforcement.

A school district outside Dallas will reportedly continue to allow some teachers to carry guns in school, and posted signs on school campuses warning that teachers “may use whatever force is necessary to protect our students.”
NewFix’s CW33 reported that Argyle teachers will continue to be allowed to be armed on campus under the state’s Protection of Texas Children Act.
The report said these gun-toting teachers are required to have a handgun license, pass a psychological test and go through emergency response training.
Wouldn’t be surprised if they found out the other victims were white as well.

Cops arrested two alleged ‘anti-white’ thugs who shot a woman in Central Park with a pellet gun and police sources said they have been linked to a few other pellet gun shootings around the city.
The victim, 36, told police she was jogging near midnight in the far southern end of the park, on the West Drive near West 60th Street, when a pellet hit her in the back of the head August 23, cops said.
She turned and saw a group of five people — three men and two women — “laughing and making anti-white statements,” the police said. “The suspects then fled further into the park.”
“You white bitch,” one of the female suspects said, according to police sources. After the shooting, the suspects fled into the park, police said.
Investigators are still doing line-ups and seeking a third suspect who has not yet been identified, the sources said.
Details on the other shootings they were linked to were not immediately available so it wasn’t clear if they targeted white people in those incidents.
Charges are pending, cops said.
The Islamists are giving the UN a heads up. Update to a previous story.
The United Nations on Friday said it had been informed that the Islamist militants who seized 44 Fijian peacekeepers in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights did so “for their own protection” and that all the detained blue-helmeted soldiers are safe.
UN officials had been trying to establish the whereabouts of the peacekeepers, who were seized by al-Qaeda-linked rebels this week inside Syrian territory along the rocky frontier between Syria and the Golan Heights.
“The United Nations has received assurances from credible sources that the 44 peacekeepers from the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) who were taken from their position on the morning of Thursday, 28 August, are safe and in good health,” the UN press office said in a statement.
It added that UNDOF has not had direct contact with them. [...]
All 116 peacekeepers are part of UNDOF, a UN force that has monitored the disengagement zone between Israel and Syria since 1974 in the wake of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War. UNDOF has 1,223 peacekeepers from six countries operating in the zone.
This is a effort to stop the monster they unleashed before it comes back and eats them alive. That said, if we don’t whack ISIS now, we will pay for it much more later.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — The king of Saudi Arabia has warned that terrorist groups will attack Europe and the United States unless they are faced with collective “power and speed” from the international community.
King Abdullah’s comments come as the Islamic State group has seized wide swaths of land across Syria and Iraq.
While not mentioning any terrorist groups by name, Abdullah said that he is “certain that after a month they will reach Europe and, after another month, America.”
The king’s comments late Friday appeared aimed at drawing Washington and NATO forces into a wider fight against extremists in the region. Saudi Arabia has backed rebels fighting in Syria, but is concerned that extremists there could turn their weapons on the kingdom.
State media carried the king’s comments to foreign ambassadors early Saturday.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel will visit Turkey as the U.S. government tries to build a “coalition of the willing” take on Islamic militants in Syria, the Pentagon announced Friday.
“Turkey is a key NATO ally. And given its border with Syria and Iraq, they share our deep concerns with … the regional threat posed by ISIL,” Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters.
ISIL is one of the acronyms used to refer to the militant group the Islamic State, which has taken over large swathes of Syria and Iraq in recent months.
The U.S. military has been bombing Islamic State targets in Iraq since Aug. 8, and consideration is being given to expanding the air campaign into neighboring Syria.
“Can [the Islamic State] be defeated without addressing that part of their organization which resides in Syria? The answer is no,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Martin Dempsey told reporters last week.
The White House has asked the Pentagon to present military options along these lines.
With any luck they will either self-detonate or take a bullet to the head before they can return here.

It has emerged that almost a dozen Minnesotans have left the Midwestern state to take up arms for Islamic extremist groups in the country.
The revelation follows the news that two Minnesota men were killed fighting for ISIS in Syria this past weekend. The White House confirmed that Douglas McArthur McCain, 33, who went to high school in Minneapolis, died while fighting Free Syrian Army rebels in Syria with the Islamic State.
A Minneapolis father-of-nine, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, 29, has been confirmed as the second American jihadi to die fighting for ISIS in Syria.
They are among almost a dozen Minnesotans out of the estimated 100 Americans who have joined the fighting in Syria.
The FBI’s Chief Division Counsel in Minneapolis, Kyle Loven, told ABC News that the phenomenon began in 2007, with Somali-Americans from the state traveling to Somalia.
‘In Somalia, it started as a nationalistic call… [but] we’ve now seen where some individuals perhaps are not interested or not inclined to travel to Somalia, [they] start to branch out to other hot spots around the globe, obviously Syria being among them,’ Loven told ABC.
Now imagine if these weren’t just Mexicans and Guatamalans, but members of ISIS. Then you’ll get the concept of invasion…
llegal aliens successfully landed on a San Diego beach in a panga boat on Monday and ran to shore – but, when another group tried the same thing on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border (CBP) agents were waiting for them.

For awhile now, the White House has insisted that President Barack Obama would issue a series of executive actions on immigration by the end of the summer.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest declined on Friday to comment on when Obama might act.
“I don’t have an update in terms of timing,” Earnest told reporters at his daily briefing.
Questions were raised because Thursday Obama said again he would act, but dropped any reference to the timing.
The police have stated that Mike Brown “has no adult record”. That would not rule out a juvenile record, since Brown was only 18 for a few months.
The Pastor will need jury nullification.
The Algiers pastor arrested in a shooting outside his church struck a fleeing copper thief twice in the back of the head, an arrest warrant obtained Friday says.
At first, the truck carrying two men drove toward the Rev. W.L.T. Littleton, so Littleton opened fire, the warrant says. But he kept shooting after the truck passed, the warrant says, which is the basis for a charge of aggravated battery.
The man struck in the head, Rodney Mitchell, 50, was in serious condition at an area hospital. The driver of the truck, Joseph Cross, 34, was booked on a copper theft charge.
Littleton, 62, a former New Orleans police officer and a local radio personality, was not immediately arrested after the shooting Wednesday. He was questioned by NOPD after turning over his gun. But he was allowed to go home, and turned himself in about 24 hours after the shooting.
Police said Littleton spotted the suspicious men outside the Greater Morning Star Baptist Church on Vallette Street around 4:20 p.m. He got his semi-automatic pistol from his SUV and confronted the two men, Littleton told police.
