All clear! Go back to sleep. Nothing to be concerned about. “FBI may shift counterterror agents to anti-fraud,” by Devlin Barrett for Associated Press, February 11 (thanks to Anne Crockett):
WASHINGTON — With thousands of fraud investigations under way, the FBI is considering shifting agents away from counterterrorism work to help sort through the wreckage of the financial meltdown.
FBI Deputy Director John Pistole told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the bureau may reassign some of the positions that were reallocated to anti-terrorism work after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Such a move would be a further sign of the government breaking with the Bush administration’s priorities, which pledged to assign every available resource to averting another terrorist attack….
Good idea. After all, we know that there won’t be another terrorist attack, now that Obama is President.
