While on vacation, I had the opportunity to sit in on a discussion with a member of the FBI. His specialty? Counterterrorism.
I asked a question about Osama Bin Laden. If he is on a kidney dialysis machine, how is he getting around? What is his health?
Ultimately, the fed told me that it "was beyond what I could comment on."
Afterward, me and another man asked him specific questions. The man in front of me expressed concern about AIPAC and the Israel Lobby and foreign spying. The fed said that it is generally accepted that allies spy on one another. Say what?!?!
As for my question about the security camera tapes seized by the FBI after the strike on the Pentagon on 9/11 ... no luck. He was escorted away before he could answer.
