Sorry, but if I were in a government post of said nature and I received a report from a credible foreign intelligence agency, such as the FSB, stating a national in the country was speaking about waging jihad, I would have had the person immediately deported. There are provisions under U.S. Law for such legal action. Therefore, the FBI has no excuse. The behavior of someone with deadly views exhibiting intent to kill can be equated to cancer. You don't wait to see where it goes, if it will metastasize. You catch it early enough and extricate the cancer, lest it kills.
I don't understand, did the FBI think the tip was a trick from the Russian government. Use your heads. What would they have accomplished by tricking you regarding a tip from a wiretap (or did you think they were trying to frame Tsarnaev, as you've done to men like scientist Bruce Ivins). America and Russia are fighting the same war against jihadists.
A part of the problem is the FBI's Director, Robert S. Mueller, is a paranoid schizophrenic, with emphasis on the word "paranoid." He thinks everyone is up to something. He thinks every foreign government is the enemy, which is crazy. Mueller also hates blacks, Arabs and Chinese, as illustrated by credible court cases.
This week Obama stated regarding Mueller and the FBI's failures in heeding tips 2-years ago regarding Tsarnaev, "There are still suspicions sometimes between our intelligence and law enforcement agencies that date back 10, 20, 30 years to the Cold War..."
So what was Mueller's excuse for ignoring tips from America's greatest ally, Britain, when MI6 tipped them off about radicalized terrorist, Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab and no action was taken to put him on a no-fly list, barring him from entering the country. As stated before, had it not been for brave passengers, 200 people could have been killed when he tried to detonate a bomb on an airliner landing in Detroit, Michigan.
What was Mueller's excuse for deliberately failing to share intelligence with the British government which could have prevented the London terrorists bombings that killed and maimed innocent Britons (FBI Knew About London Bombing Plot 1 Year In Advance). Once again, Mueller is a sick man with a corrupt agenda. There is no excusing his conduct. There is something severely wrong with his man.
Robert S. Mueller
Time to face facts, the FBI has serious problems. The FBI leadership's way of thinking and operating is archaic, antiquated, illogical and corrupt. People could tolerate unconventional ways if they produced good results. However, the FBI is being given $8 billion dollars per year in taxpayer money and keep failing to act on credible tips, resulting in terrible loss of life and serious injury to survivors. One doesn't have to be a genius to tell the FBI's way is not working.
After being interviewed by the FBI twice in 2005, I got to see what a mess the agency is and the serious problems it was creating for various victims of crime. They took some tips and used them, but blew it on others that went on to cause terrible harm to innocent people.
They are also disorganized and inept. They lose important items in the mail (not to mention their own weapons), have a broken chain of command, had no email and no working computer system. In 2006 I authored a series of articles on how the FBI could get a proper computer system up and running. I noticed after a short while, some of my tips were implemented, but at the same time, over $200,000,000 in taxpayer money and equipment, went unaccounted for, indicating theft, embezzlement and misappropriation. How did the taxpayers deserve that.
Where is the accountability in any of this. Even the FBI's oversight (Inspector General) turns a blind eye to their crimes or comes up with some cockamamie excuse to justify the unjustifiable. The worst part is the FBI would not want anyone to show their families the criminal negligence and carelessness they show others. They'd be beside themselves, but this is how the agency treats people. I don't agree with the FBI's methods. Justice should always be even, fair and thorough, otherwise it qualifies as injustice.
Obama Defends FBI Over Boston, Won't Commit to Action Against Syria
April 30, 2013 President Obama said the FBI and law enforcement officials worked appropriately and swiftly in chasing down the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing and the country should be "proud of their work," although the country might be more at risk to lone-wolf attacks because of the amount of intelligence gathered and pressure put on organized terrorist networks...
"There are still suspicions sometimes between our intelligence and law enforcement agencies that date back 10, 20, 30 years to the Cold War, but they are continually improving," Obama said. "I've spoken to President [Vladimir] Putin directly. He's committed to working with me to make sure those that report to us are cooperating fully in not only this investigation, but how to work in counterterrorism generally."
