                                  REDACTED CENSORED BLOCKED SUPPRESSED

"The FBI still engages in familiar bureaucratic cover-ups when its missteps are made public"

--The New York Times
September 26, 2010

An FBI agent slinking around your quiet American suburbia, knocking on your neighbors' doors and asking questions about you.  Could be disconcerting to some, especially those of the criminal or terrorist persuasion.  But the subject of the FBI's interest was neither.  Nor was he particularly concerned, much less disconcerted, by an FBI agent asking his neighbors about him.  Even if, secretly, it was all about terrorism.

Special Agent Tim Murphy left his card pinned under a windshield wiper on a car in the driveway of the subject of interest, but it should not have been there.  Murphy should not have been there, unless the FBI's standard response to receiving information it solicits is to contact everyone but the source of that information, and even then not until years after the fact.

According to the neighbors, Murphy's interest seemed to be in determining the subject's residence in the home on the North side of the cul-de-sac.  He could have asked the IRS, which had begun doing the same thing a year earlier just after the subject of the FBI's interest had a video conference in February 2010 with two so-called "journalists" at ABC News.  For some strange reason, however, the IRS couldn't quite seem to get the address right for several months despite being repeatedly informed, in writing and by phone.  The taxman did finally get it right just in time to slap the G-man's subject of interest with an illegal and completely unfounded federal tax lien.  No notice -- a violation of IRS rules as well as federal law -- except that his credit report had suddenly and dramatically changed.  Nevermind that the U.S. Government actually owed him nearly $8,000.

After stirring up the neighbors as part of his "secret" terrorism "investigation", Murphy finally made contact with the resident of the house, a retired federal law enforcement officer and whistleblower.  Murphy said he'd been directed by the FBI Washington Field Office (WFO) to interview the subject regarding the whereabouts of indicted TWA 847 hijacker Mohammed Ali Hamadei and whether he was still alive.  It was very odd, not just because the retired federal agent had no firsthand knowledge of those details, but because the FBI had already
known for more than two years how to contact the source that did.

The oddities didn't end there.  In an email on February 22, 2011, Murphy stated that according to a lead originating from the Washington Field Office, the retired federal agent "was reported to be instrumental in communicating the photographs and communicating Hamadi's 'possible' locations".  In reality, the photograph had been "communicated" to the FBI by way of an unauthorized leak from a former CIA analyst in September 2008, just before the retired agent became involved in the case.  And Hamadei's actual -- not "possible" -- locations had been disclosed to the Washington Field Office by someone else in December 2009 in a communiqué that an FBI employee had ignorantly labeled "spam", introducing further enmity and suspicion into the already maddening interaction brought about by, then, 15 months of FBI inaction.

Murphy also made reference to an email address and again stated that according to the lead from the Washington Field Office, the address was that of Mohammed Hamadei.  The problem with that was the Washington Field Office had known that to be false.  Whether Murphy knew is unclear.  Still, he had been given all of this misinformation by the FBI Washington Field Office and tasked to interview someone who had no direct knowledge and no involvement in communicating anything to the FBI.

If that weren't enough to raise serious questions about what exactly the FBI was doing or thought it was doing, at a later meeting that same February involving a second agent acting as an observer, Murphy stated that he had tried to access the VeriSEAL website from his field office as part of his investigation, but that the FBI server was blocking access.  He called it "asinine" for FBI headquarters to assign him to investigate the matter and then block the site.  Murphy said that he'd submitted a written memorandum requesting the website be unblocked so that he could competently conduct his investigation.

But perhaps most bizarre of all was when Murphy asked the retired federal agent why Hamadei's facial mole was misplaced on the botched composite created by the FBI itself and publicly released in January 2010 two weeks after the FBI received the information on Hamadei's locations.

"Asinine" was an excellent word to describe it all.  Had Special Agent Murphy been deliberately mislead by FBI headquarters for some reason?  Or is the FBI's incompetence so deep and vast that it cannot be accurately measured by any instrument known to man?  If Murphy believed the actions of FBI headquarters to be asinine, it would seem that he could simply have accessed the site from his personal computer to review the information somebody in the FBI apparently didn't want him to see, making note of that action and the reason for it in his report.

The FBI "investigation" Murphy cited as the basis for interviewing the retired federal agent was little more than a joke, an after-the-fact contrivance in which the FBI put on an appearance of investigating what it already knew, as if it had all just suddenly come to light.  But what was the origin of the supposed investigation?  What was its impetus?  Had the FBI arbitrarily decided one day to pull a name from a hat, investigate the randomly-selected person of interest and ask him what he knew?  Of equal importance: what was the outcome of the FBI investigation into what amounted to the FBI's failure to take any action for more than two years?

Almost everything that had come from the FBI's Washington Field Office in agent Murphy's email of February 22, 2011 was completely false.  The exception was the FBI's limited description of the retired federal agent's background, notable because it was the only accurate information and it had not originated with the FBI.  It came from an email in October 2008 addressed to blogger Debbie Schlussel.  How did it end up in the hands of the FBI?  Schlussel had forwarded the email to Patrick Stethem, the brother of Robert Stethem, who in turn had given it to the FBI.  In a telephone call to Schlussel on December 30, 2010, Special Agent Greg McNutt of the Washington Field Office stated that he was "now in charge" of the FBI's Mohammed Hamadei investigation and that Patrick Stethem had "sent [McNutt's] boss many documents and emails regarding his communications with VeriSEAL and ABC News Reporter Brian Ross".  However, Stethem had not had any communications with VeriSEAL prior to September 29, 2010 or after, and those "communications" -- in which it was painfully obvious that he was operating on substantially false information -- were initiated by Stethem.

The "many" documents and emails to which McNutt referred must then have been between Patrick Stethem and Brian Ross, if indeed there were "many".  But only one communication, in the first week of September 2010, is of particular interest.  That was when Ross told Stethem that the reason ABC News had not reported that Mohammed Hamadei had been found, photographed and followed for years by a non-governmental group while the FBI did nothing was because "a man with a computer in Brussels was demanding money" -- a preposterous claim that Ross' own source, whom Ross himself once described in an ABC News report as a senior federal law enforcement official, promptly and most appropriately labeled "bullshit".  He wasn't the only one calling Brian Ross a liar.  The FBI later seemed to imply the same.

Among the "many" things that agent McNutt told Debbie Schlussel was that Ross was interviewed by the FBI and had provided a "conflicting" account to that of Patrick Stethem regarding why ABC News had buried the story.  But Stethem didn't work for ABC News and could not have provided any firsthand information.  Unless he decided to make up his own story for no apparent reason, his account to the FBI would have been based entirely on what Brian Ross had told him.  The "conflict" would seem to be the result of Brian Ross telling the FBI something different than what he'd told Patrick Stethem -- that is, if everything in that part of the FBI's account is true.  If so, the FBI would know that Ross had told two different stories.

This is far from the only "conflict".  In his call to Schlussel, McNutt acknowledged, according to her, that the FBI's digitally "enhanced" and "sophisticated" composite of Hamadei, jointly released by the FBI and State Department "Rewards for Justice" program in January 2010, was "a big screw-up".  It was a screw-up in more ways than one, but McNutt didn't specify what aspect he was referring to.  Was it the fact that the FBI already had a real photo of Hamadei before it released an "enhanced" composite that doesn't look anything like him?  Was it the FBI's "sophisticated" relocation of one of his identifying features from one part of his face to another?  Or was it the highly suspect timing of the release?

McNutt also said the FBI had no evidence that Hamadei was dead.  The fact that he wasn't and isn't perhaps had something to do with the FBI's total void of evidence that he'd been killed.  But that apparently hadn't stopped the bureau from advising the Stethems that he was.  Conspicuously, neither McNutt nor Murphy made any mention of the drone strike into which somebody, using sensitive information that had been given to ABC News producer Rhonda Schwartz, attempted to slip Hamadei's imaginary corpse at a time when the FBI was deservedly being mocked for its failure to act on any of the intelligence it had previously been given.

According to Schlussel, Patrick Stethem called her at the time to report that the FBI had told him that Hamadei had been killed in the strike.  Oliver North at Fox News reported much the same thing, saying the information had come from one of Robert Stethem's family members and had been "confirmed by an independent source".  However, according to the sources that had been tracking Hamadei for years up to that point, not only was he not dead, he hadn't even been present at the scene of the strike.  Further, ProPublica reporter Michael Grabell claimed in August to have also confirmed that Hamadei was alive, but asked his source -- the same retired federal agent whom Murphy would interview more than six months later -- to keep it quiet.

How Oliver North's "independent source" managed to confirm Hamadei's death when it hadn't happened is a mystery, as is how North came to be reporting it as fact.  Surely the FBI would want to find out who was behind this justice-obstructing fakery and how it came to pass.  After all, it was a big part of the reason McNutt was on the phone with Schlussel and Murphy was talking to a retired federal agent who was in contact with a source in direct contact with the source of the intelligence Murphy referenced in his email.  But both FBI agents were silent on the leak-enabled drone deception as though it had never happened.

The FBI's avoidance of the elephant in the room, stepping around it while affecting to search for it in drawers, cupboards, and under pebbles in the garden, raises some disturbing questions that should have been asked -- and reported on -- by certain members of the press who were privy to sensitive non-governmental information long before Hamadei's concocted drone killing.  Some of those questions pertain to the media itself.

What, if anything, the FBI's supposed investigation produced is unclear.  It didn't accomplish any of the objectives Murphy had indicated in his February 2011 email.  The FBI once again made no attempt to establish contact with the source of the intelligence on Hamadei, obtained no additional imagery or location information, and did not succeed in coming any closer to capturing him despite the fact that more than six months after he was "killed", and even as the FBI was pretending to investigate, the source was still tracking him.

Apart from two individuals observed prowling around the retired federal agent's home in the middle of the night almost four months after his interview with Murphy -- possibly to retrieve something left behind during a previously detected breaking and entering for which a "welcome" message had been written on a bathroom mirror -- there were no further developments.  The FBI's "investigation" simply dissipated into nothing, which is exactly what fake investigations do.


September 24, 2013, marked five years since the FBI and US State Department received intelligence that would have enabled them to capture one of the hijackers of TWA Flight 847.  But the FBI was too busy manufacturing fake terrorists in order to justify its bloated budget (and maintain terrorism fear levels).  And the State Department ... well, they were too busy being as incompetent as they've always been.  Neither ever acted on the intelligence, never contacted the source, and the suspect still remains on the Most Wanted Terrorists list while the FBI and State Department continue to pretend as though nothing happened.

But something did happen -- the usual something that has become all too familiar when federal government employees screw up and misappropriate government resources to conceal it from the public and their representatives in Congress.

After we began exposing this obscenity in 2010, the FBI came calling.  But it wasn't to find the facts.  It was to double-down on their cover-up.  The FBI chose to continue playing games and more information was released.  There is still more yet to be disclosed concerning the FBI's activities targeting those who responded to its calls for help.

So if you came here for SOF verification, that's all fine and well and we will be glad to help.  However, to paraphrase the Naval Special Warfare Command's PAO in 2005: We've got one hot issue burning every day -- a lot bigger than some guy claiming to be a SEAL.  Bear that in mind, because we're on one frequency and...

Three days after a June 17, 2010 article in The Independent declared ProPublica and its Editor-In-Chief Paul Steiger the new "champion" of investigative journalism, Deutsche Presse-Agentur declared Mohammed Ali Hamadei a new corpse in Washington's drone war.

That Hamadei was, at the time of his alleged killing, the focus of a troubling story that had been exclusively in the hands of ProPublica since the autumn of 2008, has never been reported anywhere ... most notably, not by the new
investigative journalism "champion" itself.

Your Corrupt Government
24 AUG 2010

FBI Director Robert "BS"

When the FBI adds someone to its list of "Most Wanted," asking for help to catch a dangerous terrorist, it goes without saying that the government, up to that point, has been unable to apprehend whoever it is they're after, and seeks outside assistance.  Apparently that's not so obvious to some at the FBI.

A VeriSEAL investigation has confirmed that in at least one major case, the FBI received that assistance, but took no action for nearly two years, during which time numerous chances to capture a supposedly "most-wanted" terrorist were missed.  Then the bureau did something really stupid...

"Please help us ... We ask for your assistance ... Be on the lookout ... Someone, somewhere, has information ..."

b) Would you or teammate give us a taped interview – general idea of questions:  Why were you and your colleagues motivated to bring him to justice?  Level of difficulty – could US Government have done this themselves?  Should they have done it themselves?  What happened when you tried to get the information to them.

c) Is the information I received about [REDACTED] still current as far as you know?

In terms of confronting government officials – in terms of specifics of who we hold accountable:  Which government agencies did you contact first in which order?  (The most outrageous seems to be from the woman who said this wasn’t her department)

US drone attack kills Lebanese terrorist in Pakistan

Peshawar, Pakistan - A major Lebanese terrorist released by the German government five years ago has been killed in a US drone attack in Pakistan's tribal region, Pakistani intelligence sources said on Sunday.

Mohammed Ali Hamadi died when a missile fired by a CIA-operated unmanned drone aircraft destroyed a compound in North Waziristan, a known hub of al-Qaeda and Taliban militants, on Saturday.

"Altogether 16 militants died in the drone attack and 11 of them were foreigners," said a Pakistani intelligence official who spoke on condition of anonymity. The term foreigner is used to refer to al- Qaeda associated operatives of Arab and Central Asian origin.

"We have identified those who were killed and among them is Mohammad Ali Hamadi," added the official.

Another intelligence official who also sought anonymity verified the death of Hamadi. However, there was no government official available who could confirm the killing on record.

Hamadi, 46, is an alleged member of the Lebanese militant organization Hezbollah. He was sentenced by a West German court in 1987 for 19 years for skyjacking a Trans World Airlines flight in 1985. One US Navy diver was killed in the hostage-taking event.

The convict was released on parole in 2005 by German authorities, after which Hamadi is believed to have returned to Lebanon. In 2006, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) put his name on its list of most wanted terrorists.

Pakistani intelligence officials said that Hamadi traveled to Afghanistan to fight NATO troops in November 2009 and joined the Central Asia-based al-Qaeda linked terrorist group Jamaat al-Jihad al-Islami, which is believed to have recruited many Turkish and German nationals.

In March 2010, Hamadi came to Pakistan's North Waziristan district, from where al-Qaeda and Taliban fighters conduct cross-border attacks on international forces in Afghanistan, to join colleagues based there.

"Hamadi and his comrades were in a meeting to plan further attacks in Afghanistan when the drone strike took place," a Pakistani intelligence official said.

Among the other killed were: Atif bin Saeed, believed to be a close associate of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden; Turkish national Abdul Waheed al-Turkey; Saudi citizens Abdul Hamam and Brother Gul (a nick name); and Palestinian national Abdul Wali.

Hunting Down Hezbollah Killers
by Lt. Col. Oliver North 

Hellfire Justice

"On Saturday, June 18, 2010, Mohammed Ali Hamadi was killed by a missile launched from a remotely piloted aircraft [RPA] in North Waziristan, Pakistan. Justice has finally been served via Hellfire missile.

"This information was provided by one of Robert’s family members. It has since been confirmed by an independent source.
The Rest of the Story

TWA flight 847, with more than 100 passengers and crew aboard, was hijacked on June 13, 1985, en route from Athens to Rome and diverted to Beirut, Lebanon. According to eyewitness accounts, Petty Officer Stethem, a U.S. Navy Seabee Diver, was brutally beaten and tortured by the terrorists who then shot him and dumped his body onto the airport tarmac. Thirty-nine other passengers and crew were held hostage aboard the aircraft for 17 days.

Hamadi and three other members of Hezbollah: Imad Mughniyah, Hasan Izz-Al-Din and Ali Atwa were indicted for their involvement in the hijacking and other acts of terror. Hamadi was arrested in Germany in 1987 when he arrived at Frankfurt airport with explosives in his luggage. German officials refused U.S. extradition requests and he was eventually tried, convicted and sentenced to life in prison by a German court.

On December 20, 2005, Hamadi was paroled by German authorities and allowed to return to Lebanon after serving just 18 years of his “life sentence.” Two days later, Susanne Osthoff, a German archeologist, kidnapped in Iraq by a Shiite militia group, was released by her captors. German authorities deny Hamadi was freed in a “hostage swap.”

According to a former U.S. intelligence official, information on Hamadi’s location in North Waziristan was collected by “human sources not technical methods.” Hamadi is the second Hezbollah terrorist implicated in the Stethem murder to die violently. Imad Mughniyah was killed in an unexplained explosion in Damascus, Syria on February 12, 2008. Hasan Izz-Al-Din and Ali Atwa remain at large with a $5 million bounty on their heads. The U.S. government neither confirms nor denies that U.S. RPAs operate over Pakistan.

The USS Stethem, DDG 63, was commissioned on October 22, 1995. Petty officer Robert Stethem’s parents, Richard and Patricia, and his brothers, Kenneth and Patrick all served in the U.S. Navy.

Watch this space for updates.

"I just received a call from Katherine and Patrick Stethem, the sister-in-law and brother of Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem, who informed me that, over the weekend, Mohammad Ali Hamadi–the Hezbollah terrorist who murdered Rob Stethem–was killed by U.S. drones over Pakistan.  The story hasn’t been covered by any mainstream English-language media, but it is all over the non-English foreign press.  One wonders why America is not publicizing and celebrating the elimination of this top terrorist and vile being.  Hamadi is on the FBI list of most wanted terrorists."
