Egon “Dez” Dezihan — Head of the Spokane FBI office. According to his staff, he spent several months in the Middle East in mid-2004, perhaps in regard to Abu Ghraib activities. He is the author of “Color of Law Matters”, an unpublished FBI document, as well as the co-author of “Oleoresin Capsicum: A Natural Alternative” (Oleoresin Capsicum: A Natural Alternative, Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles County, November 1993), a paper dealing with pepper spray.

Rich Kolko — FBI special agent in the FBI’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. In regard to FBI spying on peace groups, Kolko was quoted as saying, “We don’t investigate groups. We investigate criminal activity.” In regard to FBI record keeping, he stated, “We don’t purge records. If we write something down, we keep it.”

Andy Castor — FBI supervisory agent in the Spokane office of the FBI. Worked as special assistant to the FBI chief information officer. Prior to that he was the assistant special agent in charge at the FBI’s San Antonio office. Castor was involved in the FBI’s investigative confusion about the Benites Saimon Sichiro murder-by-jail-guard case and the Otto Zehm murder-by-police case, both in early 2006.   According to Castor, “In this particular case, we did not ask ourselves enough questions to make sure we were talking about the same inquiry…I hope we don’t make too many more errors like this.”  (from Spokesman-Review — 4/7/06)

Castor was also involved in similar FBI confusion regarding the FBI’s involvement in the May 4, 2004 assault on anti-war protester’s David Brookbank and Al Mangan. In that matter, the FBI’s Seattle office reported to U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell’s office that Mr. Brookbank “was assaulted after he assaulted the passing driver”.  The Spokane Police Department’s investigative report and 911 tapes of witness statements contradict this characterization.

The Inland Northwest Joint Terrorism Task Force investigates cases in Eastern Washington and northern Idaho, including domestic and international terrorism. The task force is made up of federal, state and local law enforcement, and is funded through the FBI’s budget. Domestic terrorists — as defined by the bureau — are U.S. residents who commit acts of terrorism on our own soil.
