I’m glad another generation will get to know the story of this hero and how the corrupt FBI and media did everything in their power to destroy him.

From '97-'99 , one of the many teams I serviced the underwater equipment for was , HRT, Quantico. The gear I received that first time from HRT was filthy, like it had not been cleaned since the '96 Olympics!

The 2001 anthrax case was also a colossal FBI/Mueller/Comey failure. Mueller was the Director at that time and Comey was at DOJ.

This guy should have been throwing out the ball for the World Series. He ranks right there with the Duke lacrosse team when it came to getting screwed over...

That's been dead for a long time now. It's all about the agenda...and even more about the "clicks".

You can throw Steven Hatfill in the group of Americans whose reputation was destroyed by the sheer incompetence of the FBI and DOJ.

Probably worthy of another thread but I'm genuinely curious what the fix to the current state of the "media" is? It seems to me it's the biggest threat we face. The radio can perpetually play shitty tunes, but the next thing you know you're humming along to it...
