What happened with the gazillions in new dollars and expanded budget that the FBI got post-9/11 to fight the “War on Terror”? Not much, apparently.
In the past, I’ve told you about the planned new $100 million dollar FBI palace to be built in Detroit. FBI Special Agents in-Charge have constantly whined that with all of their new agents and increased focus on terrorism, they needed a new building. But, as I told you, the FBI Michigan has had little success in finding terrorists and arresting them, and more success in eating falafel with them at “outreach” pander-fests. In short, the agency–especially here in the heart of Islamic America, Michigan–is afflicted with an edifice complex, but not an achievement ethic. And Michigan taxpayers were going to pay at least $6 million in tax incentives for the building for the FeeBs. Why? It’s not like the FBI would leave Michigan for another state with better tax breaks.
Today, though, I’ve come to find out that the FBI added ONLY TEN(!) new agent positions in Michigan, post-9/11. That’s right, you read that correctly. Only TEN new agents in the heart of Islamic America, after leeching billions off of taxpayers in the name of legions of new counter-terror agents. And after they ripped off the former Customs and Secret Service functions of investigating terrorism money-laundering, plus the claimed increased post-9/11 counter-terror work, you’d think the ranks would have increased significantly, but you’d be wrong. And those ten new agents–just ten new mouths to feed at the shawarmeh buffet at “outreach” meetings with extremist Muslims in Dearbornistan.
Incredibly, the ten new agents figure was disclosed in an article in which Michigan FBI Special Panderer in-Charge Andrew Arena a/k/a “Abu Arena” whined that their new FBI palace deal was canceled due to budget cuts. With so many new agents–just TEN!–he claimed their office has been bursting at the seams post-9/11. Hmmm . . . that’s just over 1 new agents per year since the attacks. Are the ten agents that fat that they can’t fit into the multiple floors the FBI occupies at Detroit McNamara Federal Building?
So, where did the tax money for all the new agents–which turned out to be only ten in 6 1/3 years–go?
Well, as we know, it didn’t go to pay phone bills. As you probably know from multiple news stories, last week, the FBI didn’t pay phone bills in multiple offices, over a period of several months. And, as a result, phone surveillance of potential terrorists was cut off.
FAMOUS BUT INCOMPETENT. Desperate But Not Serious.
