Mr. Schiff: The FBI has used the undercover technique  for a long time.  Special Agent Dan DeSimone of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division has worked undercover…

Mr. DeSimone: “It’s really about taking on a new identity.  It’s about staying true to who you are but becoming a new person whether it’s an international art thief or an international money launderer.”

Mr. Schiff: DeSimone says undercover work goes back to the late 60s and early 70s…
 
Mr. DeSimone: "Agents from three Northeastern field offices decided that they needed something different; something pro-active to be able to gather intelligence and evidence of crimes.”

Mr. Schiff: DeSimone says there have been some well known FBI investigations that went undercover…
 
Mr. DeSimone: "Probably the most notable, which is ABSCAM, an undercover case against politicians.  Then the Donnie Brasco case which was an undercover case targeting La Cosa Nostra members.”

Mr Schiff: Learn more about undercover operations at www.fbi.gov.  I’m Neal Schiff of the Bureau and that’s what’s happening at the “FBI, This Week.”
