FBI Investigates Shooting of Men Dressed As Women at NSA Building

The FBI does not believe an attack at the guarded gates of the NSA on Monday was terrorism.

The bureau is investigating after two men who were allegedly dressed as women disobeyed commands at the gates of the NSA in Fort Meade, Md., crashing a stolen car into a police vehicle, Gosangelo.com reports. 

One of the men died, and the other was injured from gunshots.

The police offer, who also was shot, was taken to the hospital.

It’s still unclear whet motivated the attack.

The NSA said the suspects ordered “routine instructions for safely exiting the secure campus.”

The FBI is investigating.

Former FBI Agent Gets 10 Years in Prison for Trying to Derail Investigation

A former FBI agent was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday for trying to derail a Utah investigation involving kickbacks from defense contractors.

ABC News reports that Robert Lustyik Jr., 52, created a dossier of fake interviews with former FBI agents to make it appear as if he were a key government source.

Lustyik said he wanted to break one more case.

“No man is above the law, and for nine months I forgot that,” he said. “I took a boyhood dream of wanting to become an FBI agent and I destroyed it.”

Prosecutor Maria Lerner said there’s no excuse.

“He sold his badge and he violated his oath,” Lerner said. “He was desperately trying to get rich off of destroying a criminal case.”

Motorists Defy Border Patrol Orders While Video-Recording Confrontation

Motorists are increasingly using cameras to defy Border Control questions and orders.

The footage of motorists refusing to answer questions on American roads are posted on YouTube and are popular on social media.

The overwhelming majority of people don’t seem to care and perhaps see cooperating as their duty in keeping the nation guarded,” The Houston Chronicle reports. “But a small, and apparently growing, number of people say they should not have to answer any such questions from armed federal agents, and they also refuse to consent to searches of their vehicles. They say that people should not so willingly give up their rights.

There is no telling how many times a day agents and civilians clash over the issue or what most often happens next. But many dozens, if not hundreds of videos are posted on  YouTube by travelers who recorded their moments of truth. Some of the time agents just wave through travelers who said they were exercising their right not to answer any questions. In other instances standoffs ensue in which motorists are forcibly yanked from their vehicles.”

Two former federal agents are accused of stealing bitcoins while investigating the online drug marketplace Silk Road.

The Huffington Post reports that Carl Force, 46, a former DEA special agent, and Shaun Bridges, 32, an ex-special agent with the Secret Service, were arrested and charged, the Justice Department announced Monday.

Force has been charged with wire fraud, money laundering, conflict of interest and theft of government money. Bridges faces charges of wire fraud and money laundering.

Force, whose salary was roughly $15,000 a year, is accused of putting bitcoings into his personal account to pay off “mortgage, a government thrift savings plan loan, and wrote several very large checks for tens of thousands of dollars,” the affidavitt reads.

Bridges and Force worked on the plan together, authorities said.
