Harvey Bursteen, a former FBI agent now retired from teaching criminal justice at Northeastern University, said he was not surprised by Bulger’s admission.

WBZ News Radio 1030’s Mary Blake reports.

“He’s a wise guy. To me, this is very little different from his statement to the magistrate judge, that ‘Yeah, I can have my own lawyer if you give me my money back,'” said Bursteen.

Bursteen objects to what he calls the ‘potshots’ taken at the FBI’s Boston office, and says the team in place will act professionally and honorably as legal proceedings against Bulger continue.
