Louis Freeh: Hypocrite?
My print column is up.
Meanwhile, Louis Freeh had his own scandal to deal with when he was the head of FBI in the 1990s. According to the main whistleblower in the FBI crime lab fiasco, Frederic Whitehurst, Freeh was no truth seeker. He was a vindictive, institution-protecting bureaucrat.
“While I was reporting issues at the FBI crime lab, FBI Director Louis Freeh was doing every thing he could to shut me down including coming at me with proposed criminal charges, referrals for fitness for duty (psych evals), destroying my career, moving me around the lab like a rag doll, ruining my wife’s career. This man has no conscience and he is accusing Penn State managers of not taking any steps. He ought to be ashamed. Before the lab scandal is over you will find that Freeh was right in the middle of it. He did EXACTLY what the Penn State folks did.”Over the years, the deficiencies in the crime lab resulted in hundreds, if not thousands, of people being found guilty of crimes they did not commit.
