How to Become a Bounty Hunter



FBI Tried to Enlist Member of 9/11 Defense Team, Prompting Abrupt Recess in Case

Did the FBI try to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant?

The question, which was raised by defense lawyers at the first 9/11 hearing of the year Monday, was enough to prompt a judge to abruptly recess the case, the Miami Herald reports.

Defense lawyers argued that the actions, if true, may compromise attorney-client privilege in the case against five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Defense lawyers said two FBI agents tried to turn a civilian on the defense team into a confidential informant.

The FBI declined to comment.
