In COVER UP in 2004. In it he established evidence that federal officials entered into an ends/means decision in 1996 that buried a treasure trove of al Qaeda-related intelligence in order to preserve a series of Mafia-related cases in the Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn).
Lance presented evidence in the book that a senior Organized Crime Supervisory Special Agent in the FBIs New York Office (NYO) may have been in a corrupt relationship with a Colombo Family killer. It was the FBIs desire to prevent this potential scandal from tanking the mob cases, that led, Lance determined, to the al Qaeda evidence suppression.
A year after COVER UPs publication the Brooklyn D.A. commenced a jury investigation inspired, in part, by Lances revelations. DeVecchio was indicted on four counts of second degree murder stemming from that D.A.s investigation.
In TRIPLE CROSS, the final book in Lances 9/11 investigative trilogy, he provides stunning evidence that senior FBI and Justice Dept. officials may have obstructed justice in their failure to monitor Ali A Mohamed, Osama bin Ladens principal spy inside the USA
