I worked as a host for guests from New Zealand during the 1996 Olympics in ATL. Most drivers were from Ga Power, I was not. It was my summer off from teaching. On a Monday, my driver-friend Eddie and I met one of his pals (Robert) from GA Power. He didnt seem like he was too fired up about his job as a driver. We chatted a while as we hung out at Five Points Park downtown. After half an hour, we parted ways. The next day, Eddie told me that Robert had loaned his car, a brand new Cadillac loaned to us by the Olympic committee, to his guest on Monday night. We were NEVER supposed to loan out our car!! But he did. And by Tuesday at lunch, he had not seen the car. And had no clue where it was. He stayed at home and told no one of his goofup. Wednesday, no car, no guest. Thursday, no car, no guest. On Friday, Robert's car returned. He didnt even ask where it had been, he was so jazzed that it was back. That night was the Olympic park bombing. Immediately, the FBI said that nails were used in the backpack bomb. They said on TV that if anyone had info, they should call them. At the same time, I learned from a Medical examiner friend of mine that a man named Richard Jewell fit the profile and that authorities were quite convinced he was the guy. So, they werent reeeally looking for anyone else. Well, on Sunday, Robert told Eddie that when he cleaned out the Caddie on Saturday, he found nails under the passenger seat. And they fit the description of the ones used in the bombing!!! Robert refused to call the FBI so on Monday, I called them up. The man was quite flippant and didnt seem too interested. Despite the fact that the person who had the car for 4 days, unaccounted for, nails under the seat, comes back the day of the bombing, was none other than the nephew of Saddam Hussein and the head of the Iraq Olympic delegation!! The Olympics went on, they ended and folks went home. No one from the FBI ever contacted Robert. That is until they realized that perhaps they had wrong guy. So, in late November, Robert got called up and interviewed for 4 hours. But by then Robert had thrown away the nails, the car had been sold, and Saddam's newphew was safely back in Iraq. So, when everyone thinks the FBI is so capable, I always wonder if that's the case.
