FBI Special Agents Robert Wright and John Vincent of the Agency’s Chicago Counter-Terrorism Field Office had been conducting a counterterrorism investigation of Saudi money laundering into and in the United States before September 11, 2001. Both of these Agents believed a massive terrorist attack was imminent, and they reported this to then FBI Director Robert Mueller.
Robert Mueller ignored their claims and later led an effort to remove them from the FBI, by attempting to remove their security clearances. Thus, many say this is the biggest intelligence failure in American history.
Why would Mueller ignore what these Agents tried so hard to bring to the forefront? And just what did these Agents observe that led them to report to Mueller?
Both of the Special Agents were working with a “Muslim,” who was a fellow agent. This Agent was working undercover, and the two Special Agents asked him to be wired to gather further evidence of the suspected terrorist operation.
Surprisingly the Muslim agent refused, and his reason is extremely shocking considering he was an FBI Agent himself. He told the two Agents: “Muslims don’t spy and rat on other Muslims.” Of course, Agents Wright and Vincent were in shock, and Wright wrote a book detailing this breach of FBI honor.
How can this lack of accountability by the FBI and then Director Robert Mueller be explained? Could it be that there was a very prominent sensitivity to the ties between the family of President George W. Bush and the Saudi royal family? Former President George H.W. Bush and his Carlyle Group Investment firm were involved in a billion-dollar investment from the Bin Laden family.
Both Agents Wright and Vincent had no choice but to consult a lawyer, and they chose the Honorable Larry Klayman. Klayman went to the late Senator Arlen Specter, who sat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Specter did everything he could to save the careers of Wright and Vincent, but he simply could not do it. The FBI demoted Agent Wright, and Agent Vincent retired; however, Klayman hired Vincent to head Judicial Watch’s Midwestern Field Office.
Klayman continued to fight for Agent Wright, and after Mueller stepped down, he was brought back into the FBI’s counterterrorism fold.
The Honorable Larry Klayman wrote an open letter to Robert Mueller, and he says not one commentator or analyst in the media picked up on the fact that Mueller is not a “man of integrity.”
I think it is high time someone speaks out about this, and that is exactly what I am doing in writing this article. I, also, would love to know how the Muslim FBI Agent was dealt with after his refusal of cooperation, which could have helped the United States of America.
The letter is as follows: www.renewamerica.com/columns/klayman/170529 QUOTE
Dear Special Counsel Mueller
As the founder of both Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch, and a former federal prosecutor of the U.S. Department of Justice, I call on you to carry out your duty to investigate and if necessary indict your longtime friend former FBI Director James Comey for having himself covered up an agency investigation of illegal and unconstitutional widespread government surveillance on not just President Donald Trump and his associates, like Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, but also the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, other prominent Americans and even yours truly. That is in addition to the mass surveillance just revealed by Circa News, disclosing that the Obama intelligence agencies and the FBI, working in concert, have systematically violated Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by illegally eavesdropping without probable cause on hundreds of millions of Americans’ foreign communications, and in untold instances, such as was perpetrated by Obama aide Susan Rice, “unmasking” these communications for political purposes.
Over two years before this Circa report, and the disclosures contained therein about a secret order by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) finding this illegal conduct to be unconstitutional, I brought forth a whistleblower named Dennis Montgomery to then-FBI Director Comey under grant of immunity. Montgomery then provided 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information, much of it classified, disclosing and proving this illegal surveillance, which he later testified to under oath before Special Agents Walter Giardina and William Barnett in a secure room at the FBI’s Washington, D.C. Field Office. This interview was videoed by the FBI and should, if it has not been destroyed at the direction of Comey, still be found in its files.
However, this claimed investigation by the FBI apparently was killed by Comey, as it is likely that the FBI under his stewardship participated with the National Security Agency (NSA), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) in this illegal and unconstitutional surveillance. To put it simply, this constitutes criminal activity.
I therefore call upon you, as special counsel, to subpoena these materials provided by Montgomery to Comey’s FBI and to then conduct, as part of your ongoing grand jury investigation, an inquiry into his cover-up of what is likely the biggest scandal in American history, one which is, in the words of federal judge Richard J. Leon in a successful case which Freedom Watch litigated, “almost Orwellian.” See the case of Klayman et al. v. Obama et al., at www.freedomwatchusa.org.
In short, former FBI Director Comey should be investigated as part of your ongoing grand jury investigation, as he is apparently a material witness in allegations that President Trump has committed an obstruction of justice by firing him. Ironically, and importantly, Comey, not the president, is the one who it would appear has committed a criminal “obstruction of justice.”
I am aware, having represented FBI special agents during my time as the chairman and general counsel of Judicial Watch, that you also covered up investigations, one in particular concerning Saudi terrorist money laundering, while you were FBI director. This cover-up had the effect of paving the way for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack, which occurred on your watch as then-FBI director. I trust that you will now, particularly given your reported friendship with James Comey, not further and thus participate in the criminal “wiretapping” cover-up during his tenure as director of the agency.
On behalf of the American people, we call on you to do your job as special counsel and not to further the corrupt behavior the citizenry has sadly come to expect from the incestuous Washington, D.C., establishment.
Please govern yourself accordingly.
Larry Klayman, Esq.
Chairman and General Counsel

I found more on the Muslim agent who refused to be wired before the September 11, 2001 World Trade Centers attack. The following is shocking, and I am enraged as an American citizen.
Of special importance, however, is Abdel-Hafiz’ explanation of the “a Muslim does not record another Muslim” remark. McGonigle reports it this way: Abdel-Hafiz
did not deny saying to the Chicago agent that “a Muslim does not record another Muslim.” But he said he was discussing a common perception in the Muslim community, not his personal belief. Taping the witness, Mr. Abdel-Hafiz said, was unnecessary and could have destroyed his credibility with other investigative sources if it became known. He said his bosses in Dallas concurred with his decision to refuse to do the taping.
Assuming this account to be accurate, it has two striking implications. First, a Muslim FBI agent cannot investigate other Muslims or this would “destroy his credibility” with them, whatever that means. Second, the FBI brass goes along with this foolishness. Both points leave me feeling more worried than ever about the FBI under Robert Mueller (whose mistakes in judgment I have written about here and here). (January 18, 2004)
Feb. 25, 2004 update: Newsweek reports today that, in an unusual move, the FBI brass overruled the bureau’s top disciplinary officer and ordered Abdel-Hafiz reinstated, despite allegations that he had been involved in a case of insurance fraud and then lied about it to FBI investigators. FBI watchers are reduced to rolling their eyes at another one of Director Mueller’s mistakes; what will the price of his poor judgment be this time?
Here we have another instance of an infiltration of a US government agency, seemingly by a foreign agent, who simply cannot be trusted. Nonetheless, these foreign agents are given the keys to the Intelligence kingdom of the United States. Thus, the Awan Brothers were not the first “foreign agents” to penetrate the Intelligence of the United States. This is a pattern that has been in place before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. These foreign agents are protected, preferred over our own American agents, and, alas, they remain within our government then and now.
