You'll never be told how many FBI agents cheated on the Bureau's exam testing their knowledge of the law of surveillance:
"I've got a general idea. But I do not know how many," have cheated, [FBI director Robert Mueller] said in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "And I'm not sure the IG knows how many either."
But, Mueller added, the IG "has pointed out instances orally to me where there may be persons and a particular office where it was widespread. And it may be attributable to a lack of understanding and confusion about the procedures."
Bullshit. To become a special agent:
You must possess a four-year degree from a college or university accredited by one of the regional or national institutional associations recognized by the United States Secretary of Education.
The cheating agents were trading answers during the open-book exam testing their knowledge of the constitutional and statutory law that governs the basic requirements of their job.
It's pathetic enough that the FBI gives these people, who we're told are the elite, an open-book exam, but each and every one of these agents must have graduated from college. Everyone who graduates college, even the football and basketball players, knows that trading answers during an exam is cheating, even if they do it. Now we're told that the creme de la creme of our nation's law enforcement agents lack understanding, and are confused, by this simple rule that most kids learn in elementary school.
Hell, even a meter-maid should know that's cheating.
But few of the agents in question will be fired. None will be named and disgraced.
Question (no looking in the book to see the answer):
If X special agents are willing to cheat on the exam testing their knowledge of legal surveillance procedures, what is Y, where Y is the percentage of X who will go on to file false affidavits and commit perjury during their careers as special agents?
