EXCLUSIVE: Obama Homeland Security Brass Spent Day B/f 9/11 Golfing w “Resigned” Sexual Harasser Suzy Barr

By Debbie Schlussel

While other federal law enforcement agencies spent the day before 9/11 monitoring terrorist threats and what turned out to be the beginnings of coordinated Muslim attacks against our embassies around the world, top Homeland Security Investigators spent the day golfing, drinking, and partying with the “resigned,” scandalized Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official Suzanne Barr, who is accused of sexually harassing dozens of male ICE agents. Yup. She’s BAAAAACK!



DHS Chief Janet Napolitano & Flamboyant ICE Chief John (Moron) Morton: Their Favorite Sexually Harassing GalPal Suzy Barr is Back!

ICE Agents are aghast that Barr–the “former” top Homeland Security official, who “resigned” under fire after I broke the story of her sexual harassment of male agents–is apparently back in power, welcomed by Barack Obama’s top Homeland Security Officials. On September 10th, only a week after Barr allegedly resigned as Chief of Staff of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), she was welcomed by ICE Director John “Moron” Morton to an ICE Foundation golf fundraiser, making several top ICE officials wonder if she is truly out of the ICE picture. The event was attended by all of the top officials of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), as it is sponsored by all of ICE’s top contractors.

At last week’s ICE golf outing, sources say Barr arrived and was warmly greeted by ICE Chief Morton, as if she had never resigned. The sources also say that ICE agents in attendance, some of whom are potential witnesses against Barr in the supposed ICE Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) investigation of her sexual harassment, felt intimidated by her presence and that she lorded herself over them in the company and presence of ICE’s top officials and contractors. The agents found it ironic that Barr was welcome at the “2012 ICE Foundation Charity Golf Tournament to Help Fight Child Exploitation,” when she was involved in illegal adult exploitation of subordinates at ICE, according to an ongoing federal lawsuit by New York’s top Homeland Security cop and several affidavits from other ICE agents. They say that corporate sponsorships–which ran $1,000 to sponsor a hole and also included a foursome to golf–included an ICE official in each foursome and that Barr was in a foursome as if she were still an ICE official. (It’s also strange to use the term “foursome” in connection with Barr, given the many complaints about her sexual harassment of male ICE agents, especially since some allegations claim that several agents acquiesced to her demands and that their careers were advanced accordingly.)

ICE Agents (& Suzy “Stripper Pole” Barr) Golf @ ICE Foundation Golf Tournament on the Eve of 9/11

The sources say that Barr imbibed alcohol from the early morning start of the event and that she arrived and left with officials of the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), one of Homeland Security’s largest contractors, which houses many detained illegal aliens awaiting deportation. But federal law specifically prohibits government officials from taking jobs with contractors until after a one-to-two-year “cooling off” period, as laid out in Chapter 18 of the United States Code Section 207. Given this, Barr’s fraternization with CCA officials was entirely inappropriate. And Barr’s close fraternization with a powerful ICE contractor intimidated many of the agents in attendance, according to the shocked sources.

The sources also say that Barr was also welcomed by Angela Zutavern, who heads the ICE Foundation, a top official of Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., a large ICE contractor. Ms. Zutavern has not yet responded to inquiries for this story.

As I’ve previously pointed out on this site, there is a very incestuous and unduly opaque relationship between top ICE contractors, ICE officials, and the ICE Foundation, even though the latter is ostensibly a private charity meant to help fallen agents’ families, among other missions. Some ICE agents say the ICE Foundation does good things and is to be lauded and supported. But the amount of money donated by ICE contractors to the foundation isn’t disclosed, and there is at least the appearance of massive conflicts of interest, if not actual ones (which is also likely). Again, corporate sponsorships to the golf tournament were $1,000 per hole (which included a golfing foursome with an ICE official) or $125 per single golfer. The event took place at Westfields Golf Club, a private club in Clifton, Virginia, built by golf pro Fred Couples. The proceeds from the same golf tournament, last year, went to buy computers for “ICE International partners” in the VirtualGlobal Task Force (whatever that means) against child pornography and sex tourism (which has very little to do with immigration and customs enforcement laws, by the way).

Regardless of the ICE Foundation and what it does, ICE agents are wondering why a woman who resigned in the wake of a public scandal involving sexual harassment is proudly showing her face–and worse, that she is welcomed by ICE’s chief, John Morton–to this event, just days after she allegedly left the agency. If Barr were truly gone from ICE and persona non grata at the agency, she’d have been barred from the event (and the event would not have been Barred). But she’s still running the show, apparently. That’s how it appears to agents who were at the event and stunned to see her there.

The fish rots from the head down. And in this case, the rotten fish heads are several: Barack Obama, his Homeland Security chief, Janet Napolitano, and his ICE Director, John Morton.

Will the stink be fumigated on election day? Unless that happens, Suzy Barr is having the last laugh . . . and she still holds power over ICE.

As an HSI ICE agent, this makes me sick to my stomach. The deep-seeded corruption and complete disregard for rule or law by Napolitano, Morton, Barr, and many other top tiered managers, are destroying our country and jeopardizing public safety and national security. Had any white male did what Barr did, they would have been fired and potentially prosecuted. DHS is filled with incompetent cronies who do not have the requisite credentials to investigate popcorn. All these ‘players’ are rogue and corrupt. The American people need to demand justice and accountability and start ringing their elected official phones off the wall.

OPR is an organization who are hell-bent on doing nothing as well. They are a microcosm and tentacle of the Obama administration. They are actually part of the problem and actually engage in corruption themselves by covering for management and whitewashing legitimate investigations. They actually are in bed with management against people who stand up for what is wrong and what is right.

May they all rot in hell. There IS a Judgment Day.

USA1811 on September 19, 2012 at 4:17 pm

I agree with what your saying regarding the corruption and thanks for reporting this Debbie.

However, you really do need to read up on your laws and what HSI as an agency enforces. Honestly, HSI’s laws have nothing to do with child pornography and child sex tourism? Do you not know what we do? It’s not all immigration and it’s not all dope. We do plenty of investigations and its wide ranging and rivals the FBI’s authority. Now look, you might not agree with it, but I feel HSI does a great job in enforcing some of our laws. And to have you misinformed and throwing things out there that is wrong is ridiculous. Child Sex Tourism is a horrible crime that deals with children being moved internationally (which is right under our laws). You may need to read up on who HSI is as an agency before you spout off at the mouth. It makes you look less intelligent than you really are.

You may not agree with what HSI does or what doesn’t do, but don’t put misinformation out there, because then your no better than the rest of the main stream media.

Other than that, keep up the good work with exposing the corruption that is rife within the ranks.

Suzy Barr apparently has NOT been disgraced! Maybe she’ll go if Romney gets elected but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for it to happen.

The message to ICE is: feel free to run the place as Mike’s Place! And you’ll be welcome here.

Some sexual harassers as we see are more equal than others. Especially if the sexual harasser happens to be a woman.

Welcome to Obama’s Washington!

Little Al on September 19, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Where else is a forced resignation not really a termination? Also, if one of your former employees is facing a lawsuit regarding their conduct while in your employ,why would you associate with them? Even if you felt that the charges were untrue, you would as a manager steer clear of such an indivdual until their legal troubles were resolved. To do otherwise would be unethical and unprofessional.

Worry on September 19, 2012 at 4:59 pm

I think Obama & Co. can pretty much do whatever they please since they have the MSM doing their bidding.

DS_ROCKS! on September 19, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    You are right on the mark, DS Rocks. Until we have an honest media, we will continue down the path to islamocommunism. The republicans are a useless munch – and have been for many years. Stick a fork in Romney – he’s done! Obambi will be reelected by the sheeple with the aid of the state run media. I predict his margin of victory at 8%. Romney has surrounded himself with Mr. “Cross the aisle” McCain’s losing advisors. I’m surprised that Romney’s people haven’t brought on McCain’s sock puppet – Lindsay Graham – as a top advisor on “Wimpmanship.” Israel was, and will continue to be sold down the river by obambi. He hates Netanyahu (A REAL world leader) and hates Israel. In a second term, obambi will have sharpton, wright and farrakhan to the white house for dinner-and-a-movie. The First and Second Amendments will be ignored and bypassed in the interest of “Security.” (Am I the only one who sees that parallels between what is happening in our country and Germany in the 30’s?) Today, the “Enemy” in our country is businessmen….tomorrow…..? I’ll give you three guessts!

As a level of force was involved in the demands for sex, the agents involved need to file sexual assault charges against Barr. The DC police will arrest Barr, and that, in turn, will help in the agents’ cases towards negotiating settlements. Whatever the outcome of the prosecution, Barr will have the arrest on her record forever. The arrest could also impede her state/federal Bar standing. The agents should also seek Personal Protection Orders against Barr.

ICE is never going to do the right thing; they have unlimited funds and unlimited legal representation—ICE does not care about things like the rule of law, morals, or ethics. Those that are negatively impacted by Barr’s activities need to learn to play hardball.

King David on September 19, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    You do have a level of sexism here. If Barr had been am male manager who had coerced a female employee into having sex with him, there would rightly be a criminal investigation into such conduct. In fact, a male version of Barr would have probably had to have posted bail to stay out of jail if there had been multiple complaints. However, the female Barr happily goes merrily along to a golfing event with her former superiors.

    Worry01 on September 19, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Congress needs to investigate at this point – no OIG or OPR.

Call Barr to the Hill; watch her plead the Fifth.

Game Over – she’ll be toxic at that point.

StillShakingMyHead on September 19, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Since the era of Hitler parents no longer call their newborn Adolph. Muslims who once named their sons Muhammad will now name him Barak or Shlomo; it would not be fair for a child to carry the name of a loser.

How long until Vannity hosts Fraudkin on his lame TV re-play of his daily radio show, to “cover” this story?? Funny thing, “Anonymous Guy” writes like Fraudkin speaks; diminutive feminine.
How many Sailors and Aviators lost their careers over “Tailhook” in the early ’90’s?? Commanders which lost their commands? Investigated because of simple allegations of sexual harrassment? …but Deborah LeFay (sp?) was “too pretty for jail.”
If Barr did this, in this position, in this day and age, then she has done it before successfully. Acts like this do not just “start” out-of-the-blue.

    IceNoMore on September 20, 2012 at 9:17 am

Debbie, as you said at the end of the article in the very last sentence, Ms. Barr is having the last laugh by attending this event by ICE and DHS. There’s a quote that goes something like this, “He who laughs last, laughs best”, and Suzanne Barr is having the last laugh from what I’ve read in what you forwarded here DS by going to this event. And also, if Ms. Barr resigned for alleged sexual harrassments of ICE male employees, then why wasn’t she barred and forbidded from going to this event? Think about it!

Someone has to investigate OPR in Los Angeles. The SAC, ASAC, RAC, supervisor and all but one of the agents are Customs. They cover for their own while crucifying INS targets.

“whoarethesepeople” is spot-f***in-on! That type of nefarious BS has been going on since ICE was defecated, er, created. OIG and OPR are nothing but Homeland Insecurity’s Gestapo and do the bidding of those cretins in power who want to decimate the people who don’t buy into the whitewash and won’t drink the kool-aid.

Part of the reason why I pulled the pin before I was mandatory…

IceNoMore on September 20, 2012 at 6:27 am

I’d let her sexually harass me lol. I dont know if anyone recalls the incredibly severe recession we are going into, but fundraising isn’t exactly easy nowadays. I seriously do not see a problem with this Barr woman being at a fundraising event unless there was some undue contact with some employee that she had previously harassed. Also, Im sure many people were imbibing alcohol at this golf event, I mean its golf, for pete’s sake, gotta do something to keep things interesting. Ad hominems like that really weaken arguments that could have held much more weight without it.

DGAFasaurus on September 20, 2012 at 6:30 am

    Well, it took ICE a little while to reply to this one. Maybe they were still high from all the booze and partying.

    The problem with “this Barr woman” being at the event is that it denotes a certain management attitude towards someone who has been publicly identified as behaving in a despicable way. An honest and upright management would try their best to avoid any association with her, and contractors who felt they were dealing with an upright and honest management would do the same.

    And “ad hominem” is being misused by this person, as ICE misuses almost everything it touches. Who Suzy Barr is, in this case is the central point. The post is not trying to refute something she is saying by pointing out supposedly negative characteristics about her. The negative characteristics are the central point here.

    And of course this person ignores the central point made in the post about the lack of financial accountability about the donations. This is a bunch of contractors trying to curry favor with their customer. The disturbing fact is that ICE did not think that presenting an identified sexual panderer and criminal would present a negative image.

    That is clearly saying something about both the contractors and ICE management, even if DGAF is to stupid or dishonest to acknowledge it.

    Little Al on September 20, 2012 at 8:42 am

USA1811, don’t paint OPR with such a broad brush. The majority of the men and women in OPR who are down in the weeds, actually performing the internal investigations, are doing the right thing. Their reports tell it like it is. But executive management can bury those reports and close the cases with no action when it comes to protecting their inner circle. DHS OIG is incapable of overseeing the department’s components’ internal affairs functions, and executive management knows it. End of story. Debbie is exactly right. It rots from the head down. All of you younger agents who are reading this stuff–most of you have integrity and want to do the right thing. Just keep doing what you know is right and don’t become discouraged. All of these 30 and 40-something big shots who like to read Debbie’s blog and yuk it up to each other after seeing their shenanigans outlined will get theirs one day. We’re all penciled in and can be erased at any moment.

Does this really surprise anyone with elite communist amateurs running the place? The same for the State Dept.! On 911, even though they were warned, there was no beefed up security at our embassies in the freakin’ Mideast! No extra guards, Marines with NO bullets, etc. But hey, “security” on the domestic front is being beefed up. The purchase of billions of hollow point rounds (not used for practice), joint exercises with the active military, national guard, and local police being trained to go house to house for domestic terrorists (you know those Tea Party members, people who cling to their guns and Bible), and do not forget the veterans.
Keep up the good work, Debbie.

    Sick_Boy on September 20, 2012 at 8:41 pm

Dear ?:

You are correct. My mea culpa. Thanks for pointing it out. I should have articulated my stance better. By no means was I, or am I, denigrating all the hard working HSI agents working for OPR (and DHS) who truly do their job with the highest degree of ethics who take pride in their work. And I think you know where I was coming from. I agree that executive management (most, not all) are the problem who engage in cover-ups into managements follies. HSI ICE is a systemic cancer plaguing the ranks. Morale is completely non-existent. The agency is falling apart. The country is going to hell. How in the world do these people look at themselves in the mirror? These miscreants are the reasons why DHS HSI is consistently rated one of the worse agencies to work for because of the Barr’s, the Morton’s, the Foreskins (Foreman), the Julie Myers, Queen Lezbo Napolitano, et al.

I have had enough of the culture of corruption that OPR and agency management have enjoyably gone to extreme lengths through misuse of their power. I am thinking of throwing in the towel completely, cash out my TSP, and go live off the land in the Midwest where handshakes without lawyers are the norm in doing day to day business. If you sense I am disgruntled, you are wrong. I am only passionate about truth and righteousness – just like DS. I am about always doing the right thing. Always. I have a zeal for justice. I was raised with God and honor in my household. Where in the hell do these people come from? But before I decide to go, trust me, it won’t before I do an all out expose and complete dump of what I know with either DS or Fox News. I cannot handle it anymore. I cannot handle the day-to-day corruption and the complete lack of morale because of this insidious agency and the criminals who run it. I have actually started to look for outside employment. I would rather shovel shit against the tide than to come to work daily only to be told we cannot arrest certain ethnic groups because it might offend them. Enough is enough. I have had it. I am placing honor and country before my paycheck. The time has come to expose these mutanoids and miscreants. And I know alot. ALOT. I have no problem forfeiting my livelihood for the sake of the country and righteousness – and I will.

Coming soon to a blog or newsroom near you……………

USA1811 on September 20, 2012 at 11:11 am

I would think that if this Ms. Barr is and has been as out of control as it appears there certainly would be some whistle-blowers who would be coming forward with information regarding her conduct. For all we know this may be in the process of being investigated as we speak.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. The ? (question mark) is marking young ones’ minds for the future interviews. And he is doing so with the used car salesman’ line “I am here to help you! Confess all your sins to me, so I won’t have to work so hard to actually make a case against you…” The candor charge is there for sheeps, so the wolves could feed on them without mercy. Holocaust Fact: To get Jews to cooperate, the Nazis told the Jews they were being transported to another place for labor. Instead 1,000 people per day were loaded up in trains and sent to either a concentration camp or a death camp. So, cooperate fully and tell OPR the truth and nothing but the truth, see where it gets you. My advise do tell the truth, but attack them like your life depends on it! Because their version of the truth is the one that makes you an offender and that’s all they want to see and hear out of you. OPR and OIG is not a holly church and your confessions will not be hold secret only for the God ears.

Even in the foil-hat-wearing, paranoic, Government-hating, semi-conscious universe where you contruct your twisted hyptheses this would be found to be offensive, specious and ridiculous.

Please, oh master of History, describe for us the OPR/DHS-OIG equivalents to Kristal Nacht, burning the Reichstag, the Warsaw Ghetto, Buchenwald, Auschwitz, Treblinka…yes, make that leap to convince us that they’re one and the same.

To disappoint an ex-OPR agent like you, is what I live for. Not that I care much for your opinion (read NOT in the least), but to set the record straight for others:

1. I did NOT compare entities (i.e. DHS vs. Nazis), but with my Extreme Example from Holocaust era, I did draw a parallel to what cooperation means to government’ bodies in different settings and times.

2. All investigations, no matter who is doing it (SS or OPR/OIG), have the same principles that they are utilizing to get a desired result.

3. Good guys and bad guys, have the same tools in thier disposal to do what they are set on doing. NFTTU’ dope like you should know it by heart, “Guns don’t kill people, People kill people.”

I have known several agents who have worked in OPR with distinction; however, they seem to be the exception to the rule. When the powers that be there have their sights set and their minds made up, far be it from truth to stand in the way. It’s odd that, in the course of a criminal investigation, the investigator needs facts and proof to establish a conclusion. Why isn’t OPR/OIG held to the same standard. Who is watching the watchers?….

Deferred Distraction on September 20, 2012 at 4:33 pm

JAS, USA1811

you are on target. The OPR 1811s are for the most part coming from the HSI ranks, and are busting ass to get the whole truth and nothing but…
The case or action hits a wall when the OPR management folds or is forced to fold when the political pressure (as in sweep it or find another job type of pressure) is on to protect the guilty. There have been many “voluntary” retirements, resignations or transfers to other agencies that should have been in-box prosecutions for the AUSA. Woosley, Bertucci and now Barr are prime examples. Dont think for a minute that Woosley wasnt on the you “better quit before we push” list; DS and others got a hold of it before the broom came out.
OIG is getting gutted because the management was screwing the Fido; its time for OPR to get the same look, ’cause no one is watching the watchers. Its like holding an AA meeting at John’s Pub………….

Getting rid of Suzie ‘Chubbo’ Barr is some kind of start, but I am sure this will quietly die down. Jimmy Hayes, et al will accept a big cash settlement, and the atmosphere at HQ and the field offices will continue to worsten. We won’t be hiring for a long time due to budget cuts, and since there is no danger of EVER being fired, the majority of good agents will grdually slide to the lazy, KMA side of the house. Oh well, it could have been a great agency.

A sexual predator in the company and a guest of CCA officials, isn’t that also the largest private correctional system in the country? I’m sure they can find her a job laying around somewhere, separate from their contracts with ICE, DHS.

I see a DeConcini on the Board of Directors. Wasn’t Barr up on the Hill too?

db on September 21, 2012 at 2:33 pm

zero standards,

Getting rid of Suzy?!? Didn’t you read this article that you are posting under? The witch is back and ICE Contructors, thru ICE Foundation, are paying for her to have fun! Morton and Co. receiving her with open arms. She doesn’t have to work for ICE to have control of its operations and to make decisions for those that are still do, many retired executives still have it too. I know of one contractor that is having more power then any AD or DAD on the books right now. So, what did Suzy really loose, besides her reputation of course? An office in PCN building? All of them are waiting to get out of there and start milking that contractor’s cow or go politicking anyway. They set it up that way from the get go, why would you even become SES if not for that big payout later? And this ICE Foundation is a God sent to them, with a degree of separation from the government and gov contractors, you could preserve appearance of propriety and do all kind of s-t undercover of helping crying babies…public eats that s-t up all the time. Other then that, I see your point.

JustAnotherServant on September 21, 2012 at 2:51 pm

The mere informal presence of Barr is at the very least, extremely poor judgement. Law enforcement entities with Halloween costume parties? management ‘leading by example’ in this case. It is no wonder the agency has turned to shit. I am embarrassed at what I do for a living, I am just too far along to quit now. Sad

#1 Vato on September 21, 2012 at 9:05 pm

They used to have a saying in Customs, “Those who can, do investigations. Those who can’t, do Internal Affairs.” IA was the predecessor to OPR.

OPR is where they put the slugs who are agents. A decent OPR agent will pretty much do anything that management tells him to do; a bad one will actually manufacture “evidence.” OPR agents generally have no honor or integrity, and yet they judge other people. OPR agents call themselves the Rat Squad; the title has nothing to do with who they are investigating, but instead it refers to who is in OPR.

If you want a good read on OPR Google “Miguel Contreras and Narco news.”

King David on September 21, 2012 at 9:32 pm

King David says it like a man with experience. I’ve known more Customs Agents who have been saved by an IA Rat then I know who have been fired and I am sure you do too. If they were all bad then guys like you would have been fired before you quit. Keep spreading bad info about the Agency who allowed a slug like you to make a living. We’ve got enough problem without guys like you making up things. Good luck with you job at Walmart.

Sarge on September 23, 2012 at 12:15 am

Good posting Debbie but I would have to agree with others who point out that HSI does Tremendous work in protecting children. HSI authorities make us uniquely qualified to do this job and with our international offices we do more then any other Agency to protect children worldwide. We put more international pedophiles in jail then anyone else.

Keep reporting on the flaws but give credit where credit is due.

AMEN!!! I agree. I cannot even fathom how many predators I have arrested and prosecuted over the years. But this is what we get paid for. You and I get our satisfaction from this and don’t need kudos or bells and whistles. We are much bigger than this. However, it is situations like this with Barr and the sensitivity crap with Foucart, that truly overshadow the good we do. This is what King Dvaid and othes (and me) are highly agitated about. DS is great in exposing the miscreants who run this agency and their follies. Likewise, she is also very quick to always support the men and women who do this thankless job day in, and day out. Peace.

Gentlemen: Could you reduce your use of various acronyms and jargon so that others of us could follow you? Clearly you are insiders, and I’d love to be able to follow you.
