Officials To Pull Plug On Hoffa Search Today

Wed May 31, 2006 1:44 am

Your tax dollars at work!


"The latest search for missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa is ending today without resolving the 30-year mystery.

Searchers are wrapping up their excavation of an Oakland County horse farm today after finding no trace of Hoffa in nearly two weeks of digging, said a federal official who spoke on condition of anonymity."

Umm, no offense to the G-men, but, uhh...they should've pulled the plug on the Hoffa search oh, about...25 years ago!  Yeah sure

Imagine all the many wonderful things they could've done if only they'd stayed current with their case files!

Everyone loves to solve a good mystery, but I too thought it was kind of pointless. After all, we're all pretty sure that the dingo ate his baby - Hoffa's been long dead.

I agree! The man's body was probably scattered across the country. There is absolutely no way in hell anyone would find his body!

Geraldo Rivera must have shown up, therefore they realized there wasn't nothing to find.....

Well, since they obviously like their puzzles, perhaps they need a few copies of this series:

I'll bet it'll cost the government $2 million to rebuild that $70,000 barn.
