Posted on 02/01/2013 5:39:09 AM PST by TurboZamboni
A former director of the Minneapolis FBI office sent a letter this week to members of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee denouncing B. Todd Jones' performance as U.S. attorney in Minnesota as they prepare to consider his nomination to director of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
Donald E. Oswald, 54, a self-declared Democrat and supporter of President Obama, said he felt "morally compelled" to alert the committee about what he describes as Jones' "atrocious professional reputation within the federal law enforcement community" in Minnesota.
"He was, and still remains, a significant impediment for federal law enforcement to effectively protect the citizens of Minnesota from violent gang, drug and gun activities," Oswald wrote in an eight-page, single-spaced letter.

Jones appointed Kayser as head of the violent crime and drug section after she worked in the office for less than a year, ..... Oswald concluded that Jones did so because he was close to her father, Thomas C. Kayser, 75. Campaign finance records on file with OpenSecrets.org show that Thomas Kayser and his family members have given more than $352,500 to Democrats since 1990.
Kayser and his wife, Marlene, have given more than $17,000 to Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. They gave $14,464 to Klobuchar between 2006 and 2011, and $1,000 to Franken in 2012. Carol Kayser gave $340 to Obama in 2011. "It's evident that Jones protects Ms. Kayser at all cost to ingratiate favor with others in the Democratic Party," Oswald wrote.
There is no one in the Obama administration with one drop of integrity. Including Der Fuhrer himself.
Well golly darn... he's management material.
Wasn’t a gun that killed the beauty queen in Mexico from on of these guys. It was from FnF and he had it in his personnel collection?
I'm guessing - but the really big drug busts of cartels happens when one gang is snitching on another... for advantage. And terrorism? Not a lot of radical Muslims in Minnesota... Was the real job going after conservatives - and branding them 'members of the vast right wing conspiracy'? If so, that's political and it's bad... Yes, there are questions that need to be asked..
Yes, and he sold it.
that is what I thought.
I'd wager that that just doesn't happen anyway until the 'new deal' is cut and the turf is reallocated.
Why is that a good bet?
Because after over 50 years of KNOWING we have an illegal immigrant problem, and over half that time fighting a 'drug war', the borders are ever porous. People in high places or pulling strings behind thrones are making a killing off the trade.
And terrorism? Not a lot of radical Muslims in Minnesota...
Plenty of imported Somalis in the Twin Cities, and they're not blending in. How many does it take to create mayhem? (That's the asymmetric advantage of terrorism--a couple dozen individuals have changed America for the worst, creating new agencies, arming others, and laying the groundwork for the developing police state right here at home.)
