The FBI taught its agents that they could sometimes “bend or suspend the law” in their hunt for terrorists and criminals. Other FBI instructional material, discovered during a months-long review of FBI counterterrorism training, warned agents against shaking hands with “Asians” and said Arabs were prone to “Jekyll & Hyde temper tantrums.” These are just some of the disturbing results of the FBI’s six-month review into how the Bureau trained its counterterrorism agents. That review, now complete, did not result in a single disciplinary action for any instructor. Nor did it mandate the retraining of any FBI agent exposed to what the Bureau concedes was inappropriate material. Nor did it look at any intelligence reports that might have been influenced by the training. All that has a powerful senator saying that the review represents a “failure to adequately address” the problem.


I lose more faith every day. I am not surprised at all, just confirms beliefs that intelligence agencies/law enforcement will do anything to fit their agenda

Well then surely that would make any conviction unsafe? Should be a lot of "terrorists" being freed really.

See, this is the type of thing that should have people across the nation protesting. The federal governments alphabet agencies admittedly corrupt and operating above the law as a matter of course.

Yet what are the plebes all occupied with? Hoodies.

This coupled with the purposeful destruction of our economy with the result of zero arrests and the fast and the furious with zero arrests should show that those who defend the law are breaking it left and right and GET AWAY with it scott-free (sorry Scott). The law is not there for any reason other than to suppress those who do not chose to become part of that legal system. So basically do what you want and if its illegal, dont worry about it because if they dont have to abide by it so why should we?

The don't shake hands thing is based on the fact that some cultures who consider whites unclean for hygenic or ritual reasons are offended when whitey grabs their hand and starts pumping it.

In Arab culture, there is a universal rule that EVERYONE wipes with the left hand....

they know that westerners do whatever.....then shake on it.....

So you'e that guy? The one who actually washes his hands as he leaves the men's room?


Seriously, back to the topic. I didn't know I was doing such a derail. Back to the FBI's nefarious ways.

I am not suprised either. The feds believe they are above the law. Its time IMO to knowck the ladder out from beneath them to bring them down a peg or three.

It's not just against shaking hands.. they are saying to avoid Asian people and my best guess is that it has to do with the horrible radiation situation in Japan and the outbreak of Hemorrhagic Conjunctivitis and all sorts of new [[highly contagious]] viruses (ie, EV70 & CA24v) associated with immune responses to the radiation. And then you have all the usual avian/swine flu and H1N1/H5N1 and SARS viruses, mostly originating or proliferating in Asian countries like China and Japan.
