There’s a reason that local law enforcement and agents in other federal law enforcement agencies call the FBI, “Famous But Incompetent”:
Because it is.
Famous But Incompetent
This is, after all, the agency that spent 14 days and over $2 million digging up a Detroit-area horse barn (to find Jimmy Hoffa’s body) and found nothing. And then, it promoted its Islamopandering Michigan Special Agent in Charge, Daniel Roberts (the guy who dug up the horse barn), to Deputy Director, Criminal Division for the entire FBI.
Given that , I can’t say I’m surprised that the FBI–in its gushing, self-congratulatory review of its “2009 Year In Review–Protecting the Nation Against Terrorist Attack,” missed three “tiny,” “insignificant” episodes, as reader Duane notes, in which it failed to stop Islamic terrorism, despite access to many tips on all three of the perpetrators, tips which got in the way of the FeeBs’ (as they’re called) Islamic “outreach” butt-kissing policy:
* November 5, 2009: Shooting at Fort Hood by muslim they were investigating (Nidal Malik Hasan)
* December 25, 2009 airline bombing attempt by muslim who CIA had info on and did not pass on to FBI et al. (Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab)
You know, just tiny failures. And we can’t let that get in the way of Famous But Incompetent givin’ itself a nice pat on the back.
As reader, “StillShakingMyHead,” apparently an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent, notes:
Just remember this … This is the FBI’s debacle, NOT DHS’ or ICE’s – DHS is NOT part of the intel community, and ICE has been told in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that the FBI is THE lead on terror; we at ICE are not even in the mix on this crap.
Let Mueller choke on this one.
Reminds me of when the FBI put the Unabomber’s hut in its self-congratulatory 100th Birthday exhibit. But the FBI’s investigations led to nothing in that case. The agency didn’t discover Ted Kaczynski. His brother, non-FBI non-Special Agent David Kaczynski, did and turned him in. This is the “I” in Federal Bureau of Investigation?
Yup, unfortunately, that’s often the “I.” And that’s why America is in so much trouble and the FBI is such a joke.
Say what you want about J. Edgar Hoover and whether or not he wore a dress. At least the agency wasn’t this incompetent under his leadership.
