I find it strange as to not seeing the BATF mentioned or seeing them out there with the BATF Jackets working the WTC Attack. I see them at every other event from WACO to a "Church Bombing" Is it because the use of a "Firearm" was not used. I would have thought that the Law Enforcement Agencies could have used all the help they could get. What Gives???? I want to here from some of you members that are "Agents" on this.

Bomb All Terrorists First. I saw some on the news too. They didn't have any masks on this time though.

They are hard at work trying to find people who have committed paperwork violations. You know the "homegrown terrorist" types.

I have seen a couple on TV walking away and the camera guy nearly ran into while getting close up of he and the fellow agents' windbreakers. Considering they are not guessing what did the damage and they don't have to figure out how the bomb was designed, they are mostly likely more concerned with finding survivors.

On a lighter note, a local NYC reporter was arrested this week for impersonating a Federal Law Enforcement Officer at the WTC. It seems that he donned a jacket with "BATF" emblazoned across the back and crossed through a police line. When challenged for his LE credentials, he claimed that he lost them in Tuesday's attack. I'm just guessing that somebody may have recognized from that other job he does on the side. Dave

This isn't a BATF jurisdiction thing. When there's rights to be trampled on - they'll be out in force. In the meantime, this is an FBI/CIA case.
