Operation Vulgar Betrayal was a counterterrorism probe, allegedly targeting Middle Eastern terrorist funds used to finance attacks on U.S. soil. The program also targeted those on U.S. soil planning such attacks.
It was an operation through the late 1990s and possibly into the early 2000s. FBI Agent Robert Wright was the case agent of Operation Vulgar Betrayal, who has spoken out extensively about the cancellation of the program, and the fact the FBI did not adequately pursue the many known U.S.-based Middle Eastern terrorists and their financial supporters identified via Vulgar Betrayal.
Below, I have archived thousands of pages relating to the program which the FBI has released. In a follow up FOIA request, the FBI says the below 9,425 pages is everything they have on the program.
