Head of Justice Dept. public integrity unit leaving

By Ed O'Keefe

The Post's Carrie Johnson reports:

William M. Welch II, head of the Justice Department's public integrity unit, will step aside and return to Massachusetts, where he spent the bulk of his career exposing corruption in state government, according to two sources familiar with the move.

Welch reached the decision after consulting with authorities about his family responsibilities and professional opportunities in his home state, the sources added. Welch notified subordinates in the public integrity unit late Monday. He will remain an employee of the department's criminal division.

The unit, which leads some of the Justice Department's most explosive investigations of political figures, came under fire earlier this year when Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. abandoned the conviction against former senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), citing multiple lapses by the prosecution team in evidence-sharing.

Six department lawyers including Welch, who supervised the case but did not play a major role during last year's trial, remain the subject of a probe by the department's internal ethics investigators and a separate criminal investigation launched by U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who presided over the Stevens trial.

As Bush-Cheney "leave-behinds" are replaced, perhaps real justice will come...

COVERT USE OF MICROWAVE/LASER RADIATION 'DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS' ON U.S. CITIZENS -- WHEN WILL DOJ PROBE FED ROLE IN THESE SILENT ATROCITIES?

Thousands of unjustly targeted Americans are being damaged by the devastating physiological effects of being silently irradiated by microwave and laser radiation "directed energy weapons"...

...the weaponization of the electromagnetic spectrum, a silent "final solution" that may have the nation's political leadership in its ideological cross-hairs.

This technology is capable of altering moods, emotions, inducing fatigue, weakness, exhaustion, confusion, life-altering injury, disease and a slow-kill death.

And key elements of the Obama administration -- chief among them the defense/security/intel establishment -- are proliferating these technologies by various modalities, reported to include terrestrial and satellite electromagnetic radio emissions, in one iteration, disguisted as cell towers.

American citizens and families targeted by this covert torture matrix also are subject to financial sabotage that decimates their livelihoods and financial resources...

...and relentless "community stalking" -- harassment, surreptitious home entries and vandalism by government-enabled vigilantes affiliated with federally-funded community policing and anti-terrorism organizations.

Warrantless, covert placement of GPS tracking devices and misuse of cell phone technology to hunt down the unjustly targeted enables this grassroots terrorism.

But the Obama administration continues to allow these warrantless intrusions into the lives of unjustly targeted American families.

By its naivete -- its unquestioning rubber-stamp approval of the deployment of these destructive technologies and programs -- the Obama administration risks presiding over the destruction of democracy, the rule of law, and personal liberty.

The bureaucratic saboteurs and Dr. Strangeloves behind these multi-agency crimes against humanity and the Constitution must be removed from power, immediately, before this silent genocide claims more victims -- endangering the Obama presidency while making a mockery of the rule of law.
