Titled: House Panel Report Slams ‘Failures’ By Hub FBI, Feds

The Boston FBI and its Justice Department bosses allowed mob informants to lie and commit multiple murders for four decades during “one of the greatest failures in the history of federal law enforcement,” House investigators concluded in a final report for Congress.
Federal law enforcement did “incalculable damage to the PUBLIC’S Respect for the rule of law” through actions in Boston from 1965 until now.

House Government Reform Committee lawyers said in a report titled “Everything” Secret Degenerates: The Justice Department’s Use of Murderers as Informants.”

Then evidence unraveled was so threatening  to the government that the  FBI ( FBI Agent: Michael J. Buckley) offered a man (Robert Daddeico) $15,000 a few days before the committee’s investigators interviewed him, according to an executive summary of the report, which  was obtained by the Boston Herald.

The witness, Robert Daddeico, a former mob associate given witness protection 30 years ago, “provided information to the Committee that false testimony was suborned by federal prosecutors in Boston, Massachusetts U.S. Attorneys Office,” according to the report.

Daddeico was a witness in the 1973 car-bombing case against New Engalnd mob boss Francis P. “Cadillac Frank” Salemme.Salemme spent 15 years in prison for ordering the January 30, 1968, bombing that maimed Hub attorney John Fitagerald, who represented turncoat mob hit man Joseph “The Animal” Barboza.

FBI informant Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi also was part of the bomb plot but was tipped off by his handler, FBI agent H. Paul Rico, in September 1969 to run from a pending indictment.Flemmi  returned to Boston but was never prosecuted in the case.

The investigators’ 110-page report has not yet been approved by the full committee (Jan. 14, 2003, thereafter approved), which is scheduled to vote on the report in the coming weeks.U.S. Rep. Congressman: Dan Burton (R.Ind.) and U.S. Rep Congressman Christopher Shays (R.Conn.) spearheaded the probe into the Boston FBI after learning about the wrongful conviction of Joseph Salvati of Boston, who spend 30 years in prison for a 1965 mob murder based on Barboza’s perjured testimony.

Congressman Burton retired as Committee Chairman last week and was replaced by Tom Davis (R.Vt.). who beat out Shays.The Committee’s Chief Counsel James Wilson, declined to comment on the report yesterday.Other conclusions reached by the Congressional Investigators:

  • * FBI agents and federal prosecutors in Boston’s State’s Attorney’s Office & U.S. Attorney’s Office District of Massachusetts “appear to have tolerated, and perhaps encouraged, false testimony” in the 1965 state death penalty prosecution for the murder of Edward “Teddy” Deegan. Based on  Barboza’s statements, four men were sentenced to die and two others were given life in prison. FOUR were NOT GUILTY, including Salvati, Peter Limone, Louis Greco and Henry Tameleo.

“Federal Officials appear to have taken affirmative steps to ensure that the individuals convicted WOULD NOT OBTAIN POST-CONVICTION RELIEF and that they would die in prison,” the report states.

  • *Legendary FBI Director: J. Edgar Hoover & other senior law enforcement officials HAD ENOUGH INFORMATION TO CONCLUDE THAT THEIR INFORMANT BARBOZA WAS LYING IN THE DEEGAN MURDER TO COVER FOR HIS PAL, VINCENT FLEMMI.

U.S. Rep. Congressman: Dan Burton (R.Ind.) and U.S. Rep Congressman Christopher Shays (R.Conn.) spearheaded the probe into the Boston FBI after learning about the wrongful conviction of Joseph Salvati of Boston, who spend 30 years in prison for a 1965 mob murder based on Barboza’s perjured testimony.Congressman Burton retired as Committee Chairman last week and was replaced by Tom Davis (R.Vt.). who beat out Shays.The Committee’s Chief Counsel James Wilson, declined to comment on the report yesterday.Other conclusions reached by the Congressional Investigators:

The two most widely circulated Boston-area newspapers–the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald–covered these disclosures in laborious detail, often with gripping headlines and prominent placement.

  • See, e.g.,Ralph Ranalli, Ex- FBI Honcho: Agent Tipped Mobsters on Stoolie, Boston Herald, April 23, 1998, at 1.
  • Patricia Nealon, Ex-Agent Says he Told of Informer [:] Fringe Gangster Turned Up Dead, Boston Globe, April 23, 1998, at B1.

The intense publicity continues for several months, frequently reiterating FBI agent John Morris testimony. Some articles included Halloran’s photograph.See, e.g., Shelley Murphy, Cases Disappear as FBI Looks Away, Boston Globe, July 22, 1998, at A1; Ralph Ranalli, Whitey Taunted–Fed About Claim Stoolie, Boston Herald, May 16, 1998 at 15.

Subsequent developments in the Salemme hearings were thoroughly reported by the Boston media.Weld’s suggestion that the FBI knew about the leak of Halloran’s identity before the murder generated front-page coverage.

  • See, e.g., Ralph Ranalli, FBI’s Mafia Bugs in Peril-Key (634 F.3d 621) Wiretap Requests May Have Contained False Info, Weld Testified, Boston Herald, May 28, 1998, at 1.

Similarly, Murray’s un-investigated allegations were reported. See, e.g., Patricia Nealon/Witness: FBI Let Languish a Tip Tying Bulger to Murder, Boston Globe, June 4, 1998, at F8.

Ralph Ranalli, FBI Was Allegedly Told of Bulger Role in Murder, Boston Herald, June 4, 1998, at 4. Flemmi’s acknowledgment that he had been tipped about Halloran’s perfidy was likewise grist for the journalistic mills. See, e.g., Patricia Nealon, Boston Globe, Sept. 2, 1998, at B2.

Ralph Ranalli, Flemmi Admits Tip-Off to Informant’s Identity, Boston Herald, September 2, 1998, at 6. Along the way, these press dispatches reiterated time & again the corrupt BulgerFBI linkage and its tragic consequences for Halloran and Donahue.

  • See, e.g., Patricia nealon, Ground Rules for Flemmi Grilling Eyed, Boston Globe, June 25, 1998, at B4; Ralph Ranalli, Questions Arise over FBI Agent’s Knowledge of Slaying, Boston Herald, August 5, 1998, at 1.
  • FBI agent John J. Connolly Jr., stated on PUBLIC RECORD the following:“We knew what these guys (Bulger, Flemmi et al.,) were all of them, TOP ECHELON informants, are murderers.The government put me in business with murderers.SOURCE: See United States District Court District of Massachusetts Boston Complaint filed by the Estate of John L> McIntyre, March 8, 2001 paragraph 367 of the complaint.

Later, he Congressional Investigative Committee’s final report would state, among other scathing findings, that the FBI’s relationship with Bulger & Flemmi and company” must be considered one of the greatest failures in the history of federal law enforcement.

  • SEE The House Government Reform Committee in their report entitled:”EVERYTHING SECRET DEGENERATES: THE FBI’S USE OF MURDERS AS INFORMANTS,” issued in 2003.
  • In May 2002, FBI agent Connolly was convicted: As reported by Shelley Murphy in the Boston Globe May 29, 2002:”Nobody in this country is above the law.”
  • Associated Press, January 2, 2008:”Stephen Flemmi, the homicidal maniac”Peter Gelzinis’s quoted column appeared in  the Boston Herald on Friday, June 23, 2006.

“When you give us information on one person and they got killed”: As also reported by Shelley Murphy in the Boston Globe on September 24, 2008.

  • In May 2009, Judge Young also awarded an $8.5 million: from article by Shelley Murphy and the Globe Staff, Boston Globe, June 12, 2009:U.S. v. Ferrara, 384 F.Supp.2d 384 (D.Mass.2005)The First Circuit has recently affirmed Chief Judge Mark L. Wolf’s decision in Ferrara, characterizing Assistant U.S. Attorney: Jeffrey Auerhahn’s actions as “Egregious, Outrageous, feckless and as paint[ing] a grim picture of blatant misconduct.” United States v. Ferrara, 456 F.3d 278, 291, 293 (1st Cir.2006).
  • U.S. v. Flemmi, 195 F.Supp.2d 243 (D.Mass.2001) See DOCUMENT 115  Case Number: 98-cv-11104-MLW. (D.Mass), 12-11-2006, in support.

Spotlight series: The series in the Boston Globe ran in four parts between September 20 and 23 1998.

Judge Wolf aptly summed up the entire fiasco: U.S. v. Salemme, 91 F.Supp.2d 141, 181-82:

 

  • See, e.g., Shelley Murphy, In 1980s FBI saw Bulger as Both Informant and Murder Suspect. Boston Globe October 3, 1997, at A1. For example, a front-page article in the Boston Herald suggested that the FBI continued to use Bulger & Flemmi as informants even though they were suspects in Halloran’s execution.See Ralph Ranalli, FBI Used Whitey, Despite His ties to 3 Murders, Boston herald, July 1, 1997, at 1.

  • Also see intentionally placed under seal: Salemme, 91 F.Supp.2d pages 267-269, 311 (exhibits: 188-246) (D.Mass.1999) UNDER SEAL. Documents that Marino is trying to receive that may prove Marino’s actual, factual & legal innocence of Count One RICO & Count Two RICO conspiracy, of the Salemme attempted murder & of conspiring to murder 14 separately named individuals part of the Salemme, Bulger & Flemmi criminal organization. See United States v. Marino, CR-97-40009-NMG. (D.Mass/Boston/Worcester).
  • United States v. Connolly, ( FBI agent), 341 F.3d 16-29 (1st Cir.2003); State of Florida v.

Given the astonishing nature of FBI agent John Morris allegations, it is unsurprising that media outlets other than the Boston newspapers covered this matter. For example, CNN’s broadcast “CNN Impact” reported on March 15, 1998, “that Bulger and Flemmi were FBI informants and the murders of Wheeler, Halloran & Callahan.”
