"There are a lot of things that we are watching," [special agent in charge Jim] Davis said in a Thursday interview with The Associated Press. "I think it's fair to say that we don't have any specific credible threat information with regard to the convention, you know, from a terrorist standpoint."On the other hand:
"We do have quite a bit of intelligence, information on anarchist groups, on protesters who are intent on coming here to disrupt the convention with other than legal means," Davis said. "These groups are drawn from all over the country."Funny how FBI agents who probably weren't even born when J. Deadger kicked the bucket still talk like he's looking over their shoulders--"specific credible threat information"; "disrupt the convention with other than legal means" (are there legal means to disrupt the convention?)
Anyway, Davis has had at least one cool career highlight:
After Saddam Hussein's capture in Iraq, Davis oversaw Saddam's fingerprinting and swab sampling for DNA. He stood next to Saddam as an agent took a mug shot. . . .What the hell were their names? Oopsy and Foopsy? Dudsy and Crudsy?
Davis served at FBI headquarters before becoming assistant special agent in charge of the Indianapolis division. While there, he served tours in Afghanistan and in Iraq [neat trick], where he came face-to-face with Saddam the day he was captured on Dec. 14, 2003.
Davis listened as Saddam refused to answer questions about his escape from Baghdad and told about being proud of his two sons, who were killed in a shootout with American soldiers.
"I just happened to be there," Davis said modestly.
Why "modestly"? Didn't you hear him? He just happened to be there. Whaddayawanna, give him a medal?
