Overheard: FBI Director On Egypt Air
Recently FBI Director Louis Freeh was overheard complaining about the
Egyptian government's reaction to the November 1999 crash of an EgyptAir
jet an hour out from New York's JFK.
Freeh was miffed that the Egyptian government has been spending large
sums here in the U.S. to investigate the crash.
Apparently the Egyptians are out to prove that disaster was not caused
by a fanatical Muslim pilot - the official story offered by the FBI.
The FBI director thinks the Egyptians could better use their money now
to pay off the claims of surviving families.
The Egyptians believe the pilot was stable, but Freeh also told one
congressman that the suicide pilot was "sexually deviant."
