‘Most-wanted’ list has openings … DHS campaign

By Lisa Hoffman




http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | WASHINGTON --- And then there were eight …

The FBI's arrest of Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger this week creates another vacancy on the agency's 10-most-wanted list. The first came May 2 when America's most-wanted, Osama bin Laden, was killed in Pakistan.

Bin Laden's death effectively left Bulger in the most-wanted slot, at least if judged by the reward offered for helping catch him. Bulger's bounty was $2 million.

The remaining worst guys in the FBI's sights are Eduardo Ravelo, alleged hit man for a Mexican drug gang, and Victor Manuel Gerena, an alleged armed robber responsible for a $7 million heist in Connecticut. Each carries a reward of $1 million.

Filling vacancies on the list is a protracted process that begins by headquarters sending out a message to all 56 field offices soliciting nominees. It can take months for proposed names to reach the FBI director's desk. As of Friday, the FBI said no list has made it yet to Director Robert Mueller's office.

As part of its "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign, the Department of Homeland Security has turned many of the nation's big sports events this year into a megaphone for its message.

The Super Bowl, NBA All-Star Game, Indy 500 and, most recently, the U.S. Open all were venues for an educational message to the fans that they play a major role in keeping America safe from terrorists. Posters, announcements and ribbon boards ask the crowds to keep their eyes open for suspicious behavior and tell them how and where to report what they see.

The $2.9 million DHS public awareness campaign has been fattened by contributions from the National Basketball Association and the National Football League. Homeland Security has also established partnerships with national hotel chains, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Amtrak and municipal public transit agencies to enlist workers and customers as lookouts.

DHS and other law enforcement agencies also have used sports venues as anti-terror test beds. Most recently, the Belmont Stakes horse race was the site of nuclear-detection technology tests.

All this is not sitting well with some privacy advocates and civil libertarians, who view the enlistment of citizen surveillants and unpublicized public experiments as ominous examples of government intrusion.

The decision to build the National Museum of the U.S. Army at a suburban Washington, D.C., Army base is drawing fire from several quarters as a waste of money.

The Army, the only service without a centralized museum, announced this past week that Fort Belvoir, Va., will be the site of a $155 million complex that will feature thousands of artifacts and other historical fare in six large galleries, a parade ground, an amphitheater and a "memorial walk" to honor Army vets.

But for some lawmakers and a nationwide grassroots group of Army partisans, the creation of such a museum from scratch is a profligate waste of resources given the existence of the Army Heritage and Education Center in the Carlisle, Pa., area, which could form the fulcrum of just such a complex.

The center is already home to a brand-new, $12.5 million visitor center, the Military History Institute and the Army Heritage Trail. It's part of historic Carlisle Barracks, the second-oldest Army installation and site of the U.S. Army War College.

But instead of putting the national museum there, the Army is considering moving the heritage and education center to Fort McNair in Washington. The Army sees the National Capital area, where the Marines and the Navy have their own national museums, as a better tourist draw.

The museum is slated to open on the Army's 240th birthday in 2015.
