James T. Kirk Joins The FBI

If you can’t beat ’em, cheat

(Reuters) – FBI agents and several supervisors cheated on an exam about new rules for terrorism and criminal investigations and for collecting foreign intelligence, according to a U.S. Justice Department report released on Monday.

The report by inspector general Glenn Fine found that some FBI employees improperly consulted with others while taking the exam, and others used or distributed answer sheets or study guides that essentially provided the answers to the test.

A few FBI employees, including several supervisors and a legal adviser, exploited a programing flaw to reveal the answers on their computers, according to the investigation into four FBI offices around the country and several individuals.

Sounds like these folks are on track for long, highly lucrative government careers.

    A “Kobayashi Maru” scenario that ain’t. But, yeah, you’re right about the long, highly lucrative goobermient careers.

    Hell – if James Kirk really DID join the FBI I’d feel a lot better about life.

    The scary part is that only one of the cheaters has actually left the FBI. That means all the rest will continue to be paid by us even though they don’t know how to do their jobs.

    That depends on what the definition of “job” is.

    Wonder if those count as jobs saved?

  7. Compound this with the tour the FBI sponsored for a muslim who is on a terror watchlist, and you have to wonder if this bureau is past saving.
