FBI Foul Ups On Comey’s

Event Foul Up:
Boston Marathon Bombing  Russia (not our friend), warned the FBI about the bomber Tsarnaev, The FBI interviewed him did nothing, Russia warned the FBI again, and they chose to pursue no further action
New York/ New Jersey  Back Pack Bomber Prior to the bombing , the father of the bomber warned the FBI of his activities.
Fort Hood Massacre  The FBI had Hassan’s emails with Islamic radicals saying he would kill to protect the Taliban, but took no action
Pulse Night Club Massacre The FBI conducted an investigation of Omar Mateen where h e admitted lying to the agency. The investigation was closed with no action taken
Draw Muhamad Attack The FBI not only knew the attack was coming but may have had agents in the group.
Misuse of Govt. Property  Two Gulfstream Jets supposedly being used for counter terrorism purposes were actually being used personal travel and business.
Immunity For Clinton Aides  Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson were not only granted immunity in the Clinton Email Investigation but were also allowed to filter what was viewed on their laptops and destroy them
Clinton Email Scandal  Comey laid out a series of charges that would have had anyone else in the country appearing before a jury, then through them out. Some people see him as a patriot for this, bravely sacrificing himself to protect our institutions, I don’t. He seized control of both our election process and our justice process, short circuiting and tainting both, leaving us with less trust in our institutions than before.

Not exactly an FBI covered with glory on his watch, matter of fact it’s a record that makes Janet Reno’s justice dept look good by comparison.


Quote of the Day

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe

— Frederick Douglass
