I hate to write this, but it’s the truth… The F.B.I. is no longer the agency it used to be.
Truth is, there was a time when the agency was highly respected, but not today. The disgusting and dishonest behavior of disgraced director James Comey is just one example of how the F.B.I. is no longer a trusted organization.
Another example is the botched investigation into the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Adding to the log of bad acts and questionable behavior is a story running in The New York Times Thursday. The Times is reporting that an agent had his gun stolen after inviting a woman back to his hotel room. Allegedly, the agent was drunk.
FROM THE TIMES:
“An F.B.I. counterterrorism supervisor is under internal investigation after a woman stole his gun following a night of heavy drinking in a North Carolina hotel, according to documents and government officials.
In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.’s international terrorism section, had his Glock .40-caliber handgun, a $6,000 Rolex watch and $60 in cash stolen from his room at the Westin hotel in Charlotte, N.C., according to a police report.
The episode is an embarrassing mishap for the F.B.I. As a unit chief assigned to the bureau’s headquarters, Mr. Manson oversees all terrorism investigations in the Midwest and the Carolinas. An F.B.I. spokesman, Michael P. Kortan, said the incident was the subject of an internal investigation and declined to give additional comment.”
The reporter continues, “Investigators determined that the victim, Robert Manson, met a woman in the hotel bar the prior night and took her back to his hotel room,” Robert Tufano, a spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, said in a statement.
At 6:30 the next morning, police officers for the department were called to the hotel. Mr. Manson was incapacitated because of alcohol, according to the police report, which he did not file himself. A fellow agent, Kevin Thuman, gave the report, which says the theft happened from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. The hotel bar closes at 2 a.m.”
