Top official admits FBI had al-Awlaki in custody before letting him go in 2002
“Mark Giuliano, the FBI’s assistant director for national security, testified Wednesday that the FBI knew in advance that he was making his way back to the United States, though he didn’t explain how.
Al-Awlaki was detained at New York City’s JFK airport because a customs database flagged him based on an outstanding arrest warrant. Giuliano, under intense questioning by Wolf, also admitted Wednesday there were discussions between an FBI agent and the U.S. attorney in Colorado about the U.S.-born cleric’s re-entry and the warrant.
“Yes, sir, there was a dialogue, as there always will be,” Giuliano replied. “If a case agent has a case on somebody that is coming into the country, the system is triggered and set up so that there will be a call to that case agent.”
Former FBI agents say there are only likely two explanations: The bureau let the cleric into the country to track him for intelligence, or the bureau wanted to work with him as a friendly contact.”
When has any law efarcement agency pulled back a warrant citing a weak case against the target?
Read this article and the trail of BS. The man dined at the Pentagon FGS.
I smell a faux terrorism setup, just like the Christmas tree incident, the bridge incident, etc. all to keep sucking from taxpayer victims to pay for Orwellian supreme control in keeping tabs on each and every person in the US.
Was al-Awlaki paid by the FBI to act as an instigator within the borders of the homeland? Maybe he was going to tell all and that’s why they drone murdered him.
It’s beginning to look a lot like old Russia here.
PS Don’t talk to the FBI…ever.
