      Sheri,

      Under the oversight of Obama/Holder I think this is a very credable scenerio.

      itakins,

      Our FBI is a cracker jack operation. The unfortunate thing is that on Christmas Day the guy on call was a new employee with the least seniority. He was actually a trainee who was filling in as a Special Agent. All qualified agents were in Hawaii guarding President Obama playing golf. A holliday replacement so to say!!!!!!!!!!!!
