Desperate But Not Serious: FBI Added ONLY 10 New Agents in Michiganistan Since 9/11

By Debbie Schlussel
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.

The federal government is just one giant earmark. I’m sure some contractor (let’s pray it’s not the Bin Laden Group) made a fortune on the building contract.
Meanwhile, the barbarians are at the gate and getting in the country with visas while our leaders sleep.

Debbie, This is pretty misleading. You must have been so shocked at the 10 agent figure that you forgot to finish the sentence. Here it is: “and has more than doubled its number of intelligence analysts and translators.” I’m sure these employees need desks and floor space too. I have no idea if there is enough space in their current offices or not. But this statement: “Are the ten agents that fat that they can’t fit into the multiple floors the FBI occupies at Detroit McNamara Federal Building?” – misses a lot of the story.
[S: NOT MISLEADING AT ALL. CHECK THE HEADLINE OF THIS POST. THE MAIN POINT OF MY POST IS THAT THE FBI--WHICH PLEDGED AND CLAIMED IT WOULD ADD 100-200 MORE AGENTS TO THE MICHIGAN FBI OFFICE TO FIGHT TERRORISM--IS A BIG FAT LIAR. IT DID NOT DO SO. WITHOUT MORE AGENTS, THE FACT THAT THERE IS AN INCREASE IN TRANSLATORS AND ANALYSTS IS IRRELEVANT, SINCE THEY ONLY TRANSLATE AND ANALYZE WHAT THE TEN ADDITIONAL AGENTS--WHO ARE NOT EVEN NECESSARILY ASSIGNED TO TERROR CASES--GIVE THEM. THAT THE FBI MICHIGAN ONLY ADDED 10 NEW AGENTS IN THE OVER 6 YEARS SINCE 9/11 IS A HUGE JOKE. BUT ONLY THE TERRORISTS ARE LAUGHING, AS THEY STAR IN THE PUNCHLINE, GETTING AWAY WITH THEIR USUAL OPERATIONS. DS]

Possibly the number of intelligence analysts and translators has doubled, but some questions are still unanswered from the article. How many analysts/translators were there originally? If there was one, and now there were two, the number has doubled. What are their backgrounds? How careful were the background checks on them? We are all aware of the outrages of Govt. translators whose primary loyality is to Muslim terrorists. Finally, it isn’t even clear from the article that the number of agents increased. Is the hiring of 10 agents a net figure? How do we know that for example, maybe 10 were hired & 15 retired for a net decrease? I agree with PJ.

Fair point c f. I guess both the article and the post are incomplete without more numbers.

Let me get this straight. As a result of an attack on America by Muslim fanatics, the Feds created a huge bloated bureaucracy with an increase of billions in the budget. Then they only add ten agents to the capitol of Muslim fanatacism in America. Unfortunately I’m not the least bit surprised. And hopefully your poster Spanky isn’t misled by the other hires by the FBI. Doubled the number of analysts and translators? Sure, they probably hired them from the CIA. Or better yet, I’m sure the translators came frorm the local mosque.

I wonder how many of the ten new FBI agents are Muslim and are there to protect Muslims’ “civil rights.”

The FBI is becoming just like the US Post Office. I use to respect the FBI but after reading about the PC seminars and the behavior of its top administrators, they have become an Agency consisting of keystone cops and traitors.
Any agency that throws parties for the enemy and defends the actions of terrorists within our Country has has been penetrated by the enemy.
What we need is an investigation into the FBI.
