Strange case - CIA Impersonator or Not?

May 2, 2008, 12:50AM
In his final moments, Carnaby made calls to FBI, HPD as he fled

Copyright 2008 Houston Chronicle

The patrol officer who stopped Roland Carnaby for speeding Tuesday morning was about to detain him as a possible CIA agent impersonator when he took off in his SUV, Houston police said Thursday.

Two days after officers shot Carnaby to death at the conclusion of a high-speed chase, more details emerged about the bizarre chain of events, including phone calls Carnaby made after he was pulled over.

First Carnaby called an acquaintance in Houston Police Department's internal affairs division, trying to get someone to vouch for him to the patrolman. Later, as he raced away from pursuing officers at speeds up to 120 mph, the man who had for years projected the persona of a federal intelligence officer apparently called a contact he knew in the FBI.

Carnaby initially had thought that by showing an ID card bearing the seal of the Central Intelligence Agency he could be on his way. But the officer who stopped him along Texas 288 near West Orem, already suspicious because of Carnaby's nervous behavior, did not recognize the ID card and told Carnaby he would check it out, HPD homicide Capt. Steve Jett said.

2. Why is former FBI special agent Don Clark lying about knowing Roland Carnaby's name?
Why is former FBI special agent Don Clark lying about knowing Roland Carnaby's name?

The rabbit hole gets deeper.

Don Clark, former Special Agent-in-Charge of the Houston Field Office of the FBI and now a Fox news 'analyst', claims that he never saw the name Roland Carnaby until it came out in the paper.

HOUSTON -- Roland Carnaby claimed to work for the CIA. But the suspect who police shot at the end of a citywide car chase Tuesday was known by a different name to the former agent in charge of the Houston FBI.

"I only knew him as Tony," said Don Clark, FOX 26's security and law enforcement analyst and former FBI agent. "I had no idea what his name may have been or was. The name that was in the newspaper, I had never seen that name before."

But on Feb. 16, 2007, Clark and Carnaby shared the bill at an AFIO event in Houston.

You may remember their great Inaugural Dinner Meeting! Seating is limited by capacity and security. Kindly Respond in the affirmative ASAP: Provide name, address, email, phone and names of your guests to the Houston address 1302 Waugh Dr. # 520 Houston, Texas 77019 no later than February 12, 2007.

AFIO Weekly Intelligence Notes

As Carnaby was the President of the Houston chapter of the AFIO and Clark was a senior FBI agent in Houston, it's a little hard to believe Clark's denials. Methinks the agent doth protest too much.

The only good thing to come out of it is the proof, like we need any more, that the FBI and the media both lie.
