FBI agent busted for child porn

Could a former FBI Special Agent who investigated the OKC Bombing and the 9/11 attacks be the victim of a set-up?

“A former FBI Supervisory special agent who worked on some of the bureau’s most high profile terrorism and bombing cases including the Unabomber case, the USS Cole bombing, the Oklahoma City bombing and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 9/11 attacks, has been arrested and charged with distributing child pornography,” reports ABC News.

Donald J. Sachtleben left the FBI in 2008 after a 25-year career spanning the globe. After searching the computer of another individual, Jason Nicoson, which contained images of child pornography, FBI investigators discovered an IP address and connected it to Sachtleben’s home in Carmel, Indiana.

Agents then searched Sachtleben’s laptop and purportedly found 30 obscene images on his hard drive that were identical to those discovered on Nicoson’s computer.

“Sachleben’s wife was interviewed during the execution of the search warrant and denied any knowledge of the child pornography found in Sony VAIO laptop or any involvement with child pornography distribution or possession,” FBI Special Agent Kerri Reifel wrote in the affidavit.

Given the ease with which Internet Protocol Spoofing can be used to impersonate another computer system, is it possible that Sachtleben is the victim of a set-up? The FBI is notorious for setting people up in the context of everything from manufacturing terrorist plots to nabbing hackers.

Did Sachtleben, as chief investigator of some of the most notorious terror plots in history, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing which was allowed to take place by the FBI after a plan to have their informant Emad Salem replace the bomb with dummy explosives was called off, in possession of information deemed too sensitive for him to remain a free man?

For the FBI to bust one of its own is something of a surprise, given the fact that other individuals and corporations with direct ties to government routinely escape punishment for engaging in heinous sex crimes against children even worse than what Sachleben is charged with.

Dozens of National Security Agency, DARPA, and other Pentagon officials were caught in possession of child pornography back in 2010 but the story disappeared into obscurity as several of the accused fled the country.

In addition, a year after it had been established that Dyncorp was involved in global child sex slave rings, the U.S. government continued to award the company new contracts. Dyncorp and Halliburton subsidiary KBR successfully lobbied against a law that would have barred companies involved in the sex trade scandal from doing business with the U.S. government and the whole story was buried.

The FBI always seems to be happy to burn individuals like Sachtleben for allegedly possessing child pornography, yet when it comes to the big boys, the perpetrators are protected and even rewarded by the federal government for similar and in many cases far worse sex crimes against children.
