The Miami Herald reports that Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is being investigated for taking a piece of the airplane that crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11. Members of the FBI are also being investigated for taking other pieces related to the 911 carnage.
Heavily deleted versions of the report show that 13 FBI agents had taken rubble, debris and items such as flags and a Tiffany crystal globe paperweight.
No agents were being charged with crimes because the bureau did not have such a policy during the Sept. 11 investigation.
Many interviewed regarded the debris as sacred, the report stated, ``and were disgusted by the fact that anyone would want to take items, including pieces of the building which were contaminated with blood and human body parts.''
The report discloses that agents had taken World Trade Center security patches cut from the sleeves of shirt pieces found in the rubble.
