FBI hires civilians to help find local terrorist hot spots

(NBC Universal) Authorities said the six people suspected of planning a terrorist attack on Fort Dix were captured because of a tip, but now the FBI is beefing up efforts to fight homegrown terrorism in the Philadelphia area without tips, too.

Jorge Garcia, Assistant Special FBI agent in charge in Philadelphia, said his new taskforce is expected to find potential threats without called in clues.

The most interesting part?

Garcia’s taskforce members are not FBI agents, but civilian analysts.

“We have former engineers, former associate professors, former high school teachers and police officers,” Garcia explained.

Analyst Bill Dietze, a former computer programmer, said part of his job includes analyzing the Delaware Valley’s population, trends in violence and a number of foreigners moving in and around the region.

“We’re trying to be predictive in where the next trouble spots are going to be,” Dietze said.

Dietze — who studies several FBI investigations at the same time looking for connections — passes his findings on to FBI officials to help answer specific questions like which infrastructures could be targets for terrorist attacks and other areas that could be problematic that the bureau or division hasn’t already checked out.

Ultimately, federal agents said they hope to ensure there will never be another 9-11.
