How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Critics Question Appointment of FBI Agent to Run Terrorist Explosive Center

WASHINGTON — The FBI has appointed veteran agent Rafael J. Garcia to run its Terrorist Explosives Device  Analytical Center (TEDAC) , but some critics say there are people more qualified for the job, reports Jeff Stein’s Spy Talk column in the Washington Post.

Spy Talk writes that Garcia, who has been with the FBI for about 15 years, “may be a very fine man, but veteran bomb experts are complaining that he comes to the new job without any first-hand experience with explosives.”

Spy Talk writes that critics say the selection isn’t a bad reflection on Garcia, but rather the FBI’s selection of managers. Some critics say the job should have gone to Greg Carl, head of the FBI’s explosives unit for the past eight years.

FBI spokesman Michael Kortan told Spy Talk Garcia “was selected as TEDAC Director because of his proven record of effective leadership within the FBI and among other government partners in the military and intelligence communities.”

Garcia had “experience in Iraq with IEDs,” Kortan told Spy Talk and a “distinguished record in the intelligence field.”

So send him to the HDS Basic course. He needs enough HDS training to enable him to understand the technologies and interact with those who are specialized (“experts”), but his main function will be to administer the unit. He’s not going to be doing RSPs. Being a tech does not guarantee administrative, leadership, and management competence.
