Ex-FBI Agent: No One More Capable of Solving Egyptian Plane Crash Than FBI

When it comes to forensic investigations of acts of terrorism, no one is better than the FBI, former FBI agent Ron Hosko said to Newsmax TV. 

That’s why it’s no surprise that Russian leaders have called on the FBI to help investigate the deadly plane crash in Egypt.

“The truth is the FBI has vast experience in this area and tremendous expertise,” Hosko told host Ed Berliner on “The Hard Line.” “They have a capability that is probably unmatched around the world.

“In the wake of our efforts and Operation Enduring Freedom, the FBI created the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center called TEDAC in about 2003, that brings together not just FBI personnel and experts but those from the military and other government agencies as well. So there’s a great capability here.”

If anyone is capable of finding evidence of a bomb, Hosko said, it would be the FBI.

“The advantage is from a forensics point of view, it was an area essentially over the desert so that many of the pieces ought to be collectable. Even if some have buried themselves slightly into the earth, you could with metal detectors identify, locate, and bring back a lot of pieces over essentially a flat piece of land.

“This is not a remote mountain side nor is it over the ocean. So there’s a great opportunity for forensics experts with the right mindset to collect and then to analyze.

“Yes, some of the device, if it was a device, would be vaporized. However, the FBI has shown repeatedly in investigations here… that you can find those small items. Just look no further than Pan Am 103 where they tracked it back to barometric triggers and sensors and pieced that puzzle back together and went back to Libya.

“So this can be done, it’s over a piece of the world where it ought to be advantageous to do that sort of work.”

Activists Call for Justice for Man Killed by Border Patrol Agents in May 2010

About 100 activists gathered Monday evening to protest the Justice Department’s decision not to file charges against Border Patrol agents in the death of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas, the San Diego Union Tribune reports. 

Hernandez Rojas died in a clash with federal agents in May 2010.

On Friday, the Justice Department said it opted against charging law enforcement officials in the death, saying “a team of experienced federal prosecutors determined that the evidence was insufficient to pursue federal criminal civil rights charges… Neither accident, mistake, fear, negligence nor bad judgment is sufficient to establish a federal criminal civil rights violation.”

But local immigration rights groups counter that excessive force was used against a handcuffed Hernandez Rojas.

“After five years of investigating, with evidence and with witness accounts, with everything very clear, they come to tell us that there wasn’t enough evidence to bring these agents to trial,” said Maria Puga, the widow of Hernandez Rojas through a translator at the protest. “All of us here know that they’re culpable. They murdered my husband. Two autopsies ruled his death a homicide.”

A retired Secret Service agent turned to his 25 years of experience and his imagination to write a thriller novel entitled, “Bratva’s Rose Tattoo,” reports the Washington Times. 

The book, written by Thomas D. Sloan, is now available and selling on Amazon. 

All profits will be donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation and Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Jersey.

Sloand describes the plot: “An Air Force transport plane ferrying the president’s limousine and scores of Secret Service, Marine, and Air Force personnel has been hijacked by Bratva —  the Russian mob — which seeks the release of a brilliant and dangerous cyber hacker named Max.”
