Abe and Joe tour the checkered history of the FBI and its future in Portland.

 The City of Portland and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have had a tumultuous relationship in recent years. First, Portland opted out of the Bush-era Joint Terrorism Task Force, citing concerns over civil liberties. Then, late last year, the FBI foiled its own plot to blow up the Christmas-tree lighting ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Now, the Bureau wants to splash $65 million on a new headquarters building near the airport, and the City is thinking about getting back together again. Abe and Joe take a look at the FBI's past, and weigh in on the question of re-joining the JTTF.
