What does a letter from the FBI mean...

... besides nothing?

Read this:

A familiar name will jump out at you - Angela L. Byers, at that time (September 22, 2008)  Unit Chief, Initial Processing Unit of an FBI office.

That name surfaced in a letter to Undersheriff Andy Zinke dated January 4, 2011, when she wrote as Assistant Special Agent in Charge, Chicago Field Office, FBI. She affixed her signature under the signature plate of Robert D. Grant, Special Agent in Charge, whose signature did not appear on the letter.

The very first thing I noticed about that letter was that it did not bear a File No. That immediately caused me to wonder whether her letter was genuine. Actually, what I wondered was whether her letter was fraudulent. What comes out of an FBI office without a File No., which is needed for any reply sent.

What was the topic of her January 4, 2011, letter? That was the one that said, in effect, that Scott Milliman had "...provided information in confidence..." and that the FBI had decided that none of the information had "prosecutive merit."

Nice, huh? Since when does the FBI "out" an informant or even acknowledge an investigation, especially if it involves the boss of the person to whom the letter was addressed?

That letter should have been enough to get Angela transferred to Paducah. Or maybe it was a red herring, designed to create a false sense of relief to "certain" people.

The letter continues to be highly suspect to me and, indeed, meaningless and worthless.

I'm just waiting for the day when some FBI agent shows up at my door with one of those self-written search warrants. What are they called? You know the ones - the ones that you cannot tell anyone about. Not even your attorney. Under penalty of imprisonment. It's a felony with a 5-year prison tag on it. Hey, this is the U.S.A., folks.

The Patriot Act ought to be catching terrorists, not making criminals out of law-abiding citizens.
