43 Forum: Mission of the FBI

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, OH (3/6/11) - My guest and I discussed the mission of the FBI.  The FBI's main goal is to protect and defend the United States against terrorists and foreign intelligence threats, to uphold and enforce the criminal laws of the United States. 

Here is a list of some of the topics we talked about in detail, combating public corruption; protecting civil rights; combating and keeping track of hate groups; combating major white collar and violent crime; connecting the dots to prevent terror attacks in the U.S.; investigating bank robberies and mail fraud. 

We also discussed how the agency fights drugs, child porn and childhood trafficking.

We talked about the need for all Americans to stay aware of their surroundings and to report anything that looks out of place.
