    (December 20, 1954- )
    F.B.I. Agent out of Minneapolis
    Uncovered weaknesses in the F.B.I.
    As a fifth grader, she wrote to the producers of 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' asking how she could join U.N.C.L.E.
    They told her U.N.C.L.E. is fiction and she should write to the F.B.I.
    The F.B.I. sent her '99 Facts About the F.B.I.'
    Her memo chastising her agency for ignoring leads, was intended only for the F.B.I. director. The Senate Committee on Intelligence leaked it to CNN and became public.
    Some of her criticism and suggestions were quite naive (asking if the computer system could have a searching system so they could look up 'flight schools').
    Some higher F.B.I. agents have considered criminal action against her.
    As a child, she would nag and bully other children into doing what she wanted.
    Her husband is a stay at home dad to their four children.
    Prior to the September 11, 2001 attack on the U.S., she had information on Zacarias Moussaoui taking 747 flying lessons.
    Suspecting terrorist activity, she reported to the higher ups who ignored it completely.
    Along with Cynthia Cooper and Sherron Watkins, named Time Magazine Persons of the Year (2002).
    When she was child, the F.B.I. told her they do not hire women agents.
    Although she is her family's only wage earner and was 2½ years from retirement, she put everything in jeopardy to report the truth of how the F.B.I. ignores critical leads.
    She said the F.B.I. could be great if they put the goal of protecting Americans over that of protecting itself.
    She runs the triathalon.
    She graduated Wartburg College and earned her law degree at the University of Iowa.
