Reno Admits She's Under FBI Guard

by Jack Thompson
Monday, Jan. 29, 2001 -- On April 30 of last year, at the height of the Elian Gonzalez matter, The Miami Herald reported that three police squad cars were "quietly keeping vigil" over then Attorney General Janet Reno's home in the 11200 block of Kendall Drive in suburban Miami.

Police sources recently informed me that even though the Elian saga is long over and Reno is no longer a government official, security personnel have remained at the Reno family residence.

Janet Reno this day sits inside the home her mother built illegally without the required building permits.

Outside the home sits Reno's brand new red pick-up truck. Sure enough, roaming around the premises are security personnel you can plainly see as you drive by.

My police sources suggested I file a Freedom of Information Act request to determine who is paying for these security personnel for a person who is a private citizen.

But FOIA requests can take a lot of time. I decided to call Janet myself, as I have in the past.

At 1:15 pm today, January 28, 2001--Super Bowl Sunday--I called Janet and gave her my name. I welcomed her back to Miami, and I told her I was working on a story about her return to Miami. I asked her this question:

"Madame Attorney General, who is providing the security personnel at your home?"

She startled me by answering the question: "They are provided by the FBI. I decided to leave that decision to Director Freeh. You'll have to ask him for the details."

I thanked her and said good-bye. So now the question for Director Freeh:

Why is the FBI providing a private citizen protection at taxpayer expense?

Another question: Why is it that Johhny Chung, the man who testified about the People's Republic of China's illegal campaign contributions and was nearly killed by PRC operatives, is receiving no FBI protection?

Further, is it a matter of national policy that we protect the woman who used her office to thwart an independent counsel's investigation of Chinagate while leaving open to assassination its whistleblowers, of which Chung is only one?

Put another way, why is Janet Reno's life more valuable than thousands of other men, women, and children who today are at greater risk, and demonstrably so, than is hers?

As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. Justice William O. Douglas, US Supreme Court (1939-75)
