Stolen Art Watch, FBI Icon Robert Wittman Vindicated, Warren T Bamford Falls on Sword of Truth, !!!
FBI Icon Robert K. Wittman, Number One, Warren T. Bamford, a Real Number Two !!!!
It is with great pleasure and a personal sense of pride that Art Hostage can report the FBI Icon Robert Wittman has been vindicated in his criticism of Warren T Bamford micro managing him during a real chance to recover some of the Gardner Art.
Warren T Bamford is to retire and has been forced to take a job with a Public Sewage Utility Company.
Warren, you mess with an American Icon you end up with a "Shit" job !!!!
No doubt the internal investigation into the conduct of Warren T Bamford with regards the Robert Wittman Gardner art recovery attempt will be revealed at some stage.
Those of us who are on the inside track know how small the global underworld in stolen art is and some of us know just how close Bob Wittman came to recovering some of the stolen Gardner art from the Corsican Mafia.
Details of this will be revealed in Robert Wittmans new book, which will be a deserved blockbuster, see link to buy a cherished copy:
Now Warren, if you apologise to Robert Wittman publicly, Bob will not only accept it, but will humbly spring to your defence.
Warren, you should have thought about the fights you pick and remember Washington is a fickle place.
FBI Icon Robert Wittman has a special place in the hearts of the American people and this endearing quality has proven to be your downfall.
That said, Art Hostage is prepared to give you a pass and allow you to retire gracefully.
here is the Warren Bamford Retirement article:
Head Of FBI's Boston Office To Retire Next Month
DENISE LAVOIE, AP Legal Affairs Writer
BOSTON (AP) ― Warren Bamford, the special agent in charge of the FBI's Boston office, is retiring from the FBI after 24 years and going to work for a private utility, the FBI said Wednesday.
Bamford will leave June 18 and begin a job at National Grid, said Gail Marcinkiewicz, a spokeswoman for the Boston FBI.
Bamford, 51, is a Lowell native who led the FBI's Los Angeles counterterrorism division before returning to Massachusetts in 2007 to run the Boston FBI office.
Earlier in his FBI career, he worked as a sniper, hostage rescuer, anti-terrorism specialist and gang task force leader.
Marcinkiewicz said there's no word yet on who will succeed Bamford as head of the Boston office.
Bamford declined a request for an interview.
While on the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team, Bamford was sent as a sniper to both the Ruby Ridge standoff in Idaho in 1992 and the government siege at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, in 1993. Bamford said he did not fire his weapon in either case.
"If you break my career down into stages, much of it was spent in violent crime and gang investigations, and those are things I'm really concerned about," he said during a 2007 interview with The Associated Press.
Bamford was an officer in the Marine Corps for six years before joining the FBI in 1986.
He has worked for the FBI offices in Washington, D.C.; New Haven, Conn.; and Baltimore, where he worked on violent crime and gang cases.
Marcinkiewicz said she did not have details on Bamford's job with National Grid. A spokesperson for the utility had no immediate comment.
When Bamford took the job as chief of the Boston office, he listed the search for fugitive gangster James "Whitey" Bulger as one of his priorities. Bulger, who is wanted in connection with 19 murders, is on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list with a $2 million reward for information leading to his capture.
During Bamford's tenure, the agency circulated wanted posters in various parts of the world and took out a full-page ad in the Plastic Surgery News, featuring photos of Bulger's girlfriend, Catherine Greig, who had multiple cosmetic procedures before she allegedly went on the lam with Bulger in 1995.
Bulger has not been found.
