A popular exhibit gives the public a rare inside look into today’s FBI.
Mollie Halpern: A popular exhibit gives the public a rare inside look into today’s FBI.
Patty Rhule: People have been always fascinated with the FBI.
Halpern: Never-publicly-seen-before evidence from some of the FBI’s biggest headline cases since the terror attacks on 9/11 is on display at the Newseum—a museum in the nation’s capital dedicated to the freedoms of the First Amendment.
The Newseum’s Patty Rhule says the expanded exhibit shows how crime and the way the FBI fights it has evolved since 9/11.
Rhule: We decided to update it because there was just so much going on in the world of counterterrorism and fighting cyber crime. And also because the FBI’s mission changed forever after 9/11, and we wanted to tell the story from 9/11 until now, what’s been happening.
Halpern: The exhibit also shows the role the media and the public can play in preventing crime, assisting investigations, and more.
Rhule: We think it’s important for people to understand the FBI’s role and how the news media sometimes works in concert with the FBI and sometimes they’re in conflict.
Halpern: With FBI, This Week, I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau.
