Description

CBS 60 Minutes investigates flaws in the FBI system. The first story reveals that FBI's Language Department is delaying translations crucial for terrorism investigation in order to appear overworked and demand higher budget for next year. The second story shows how Sibel Edmonds, a whistleblower translator, has been fired for exposing the deliberate delays. The third story is about the wrongful conviction of the suspected mobster Joseph Salvati, who was arrested in 1968 for a murder he did not commit. Then-FBI director J. Edgar Hoover was aware of Salvati's innocence, but the accused man still spent 32 years in prison, as challenging the government conviction took him more than 25 years.
