Sept. 11, 2001 U.S. attacked after numerous lapses discovered in FBI terrorism investigations. FBI Special Agent John O'Neill was the FBI's leading expert on Al Qaeda. But to people at FBI headquarters he was too much of a maverick and they stopped listening to him.
FBI alters course after 9/11 attacks -- For the FBI 2001 embarrassments included Robert Hanssen selling secrets to Russia, shoddy record-keeping delayed the execution of Timothy McVeigh, and a withering report by the Justice Department on the FBI's handling of the Wen Ho Lee espionage case.

FBI agent Robert Hanssen pleaded guilty to espionage and conspiracy to commit espionage - 2001
Veteran FBI agent charged with espionage -- Robert Philip Hanssen, a 27-year veteran FBI charged with providing classified information to Russian intelligence agents. Hanssen may have confirmed information given to the Russians by CIA agent Aldrich Ames. 10 US agents were executed in Russia as a result of the information Ames passed on. Priscilla Sue Galey, ex-stripper says Hanssen showered her with gifts and asked for nothing in return. CNN
Robert Philip Hanssen a counterintelligence agent for the FBI, appeared devoted to the crusade against Communism, however, he sold secrets to the Soviet Union and Russia from 1980 to 1999. Without his wife's knowledge, he shared nude pictures of her with a friend, and repeatedly arranged for the friend to watch him have sex with his wife.
Dump the FBI -- The FBI is a menace to the life, liberty and property of decent people. The fiasco with the McVeigh trial evidence wasn't the worst of it. The discovery of thousands of pages of documents which should have been surrendered to the defense, but never were, may embarrass the FBI, but it won't destroy lives. For the heavy hitter stuff, you have to look to the imprisonment of Joseph Salvati for 30 years, even though the Feds knew he was innocent, or the shielding of James ''Whitey'' Bulger and Stephen Flemmi while they engaged in extortion and murder. Once you look at the full picture, then you know why the FBI should be disbanded.
James J. Bulger, known as Whitey, once the underworld boss of Boston -- His road to violence began with beatings and sexual abuse as a child bounced from one foster home to another. After being raped during a drunken stupor by an Army recruiting officer, he turned to his life of violent crime. By 31, he boasts of a criminal record 9 pages long that included ''attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, mayhem, breaking and entering and rape,'' although he claims the rape charges were bum raps. Whitey's corrupting of the FBI in Boston made him a national story. He worked both sides, and as a valuable informant had the Boston office so under his control that he could send an innocent man to prison for a murder he committed, all with the FBI's knowledge. Whitey disappeared in 1995; there is a $1 million reward for information leading to his arrest.
