Politicization of FBI continuing under Obama

(WMR) -- Seasoned FBI agents on the trail of foreign spies and U.S. election fraudsters were routinely transferred off their investigations and out of their jurisdictions as political �payback� by the Bush administration.

WMR has learned the policy of punishing FBI agents who get too close to criminal enterprises involving politically-connected individuals and companies is continuing under President Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder.

WMR also has learned that an FBI agent in Florida who was investigating ties between a NASA and Florida state contractor, Yang Enterprises, and Chinese intelligence was abruptly transferred to Alaska. Then-Representative Tom Feeney, who served on the House Judiciary Committee, was connected financially to Yang.

WMR has, in the past, reported on an FBI agent on John O�Neill�s Joint Terrorism Task Force being transferred to Lahore, Pakistan, and then to an insignificant desk job at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC. The agent had been the lead investigator of a number of Israeli furniture movers, including the Mossad-connected Urban Moving Systems of Weehawken, New Jersey, who were seen in and around the World Trade Center before 9/11.

O�Neill, punished by the FBI for having a brief case containing classified information temporarily �stolen� in Florida, died while heading up security for the World Trade Center on 9/11.

We have now learned that the Obama Justice Department is pressuring FBI agents in Ohio not to investigate documented cases of Israeli industrial espionage being committed against a number of high-tech firms in the state.

Many FBI agents know that investigating Israeli espionage, industrial- or national security-related, in the United States is a virtual �third rail� that will end their FBI careers.

Under the Bush administration, FBI agents in Ohio were ordered not to investigate election irregularities in the 2004 election -- electoral fraud which handed the state�s electoral votes to George W. Bush, ensuring him re-election.
