Agent Reinstated After 9/11 Criticism

News from The Associated Press:
"CHICAGO (AP) -- The Justice Department ordered the FBI to reinstate a Chicago anti-terrorism agent who had faced possible dismissal for accusing the bureau of not doing enough to prevent the Sept. 11 attacks.

The FBI had suspended and was trying to fire Agent Robert G. Wright Jr. for alleged insubordination, unprofessional conduct and talking to the media without bureau approval.


Wright held a news conference in 2003 during which he referred to FBI's International Terrorism Unit as a "complete joke" and also appeared on a network news program."

Nice to see a whistle blower win his case, but why do they always have a case to win or lose in the first place. Isn't there a law against punishing whistle blowers in the first place?
