Has the FBI Received the Coconut Treatment?

by baldilocks

Remem­ber this?

Omar Mir Sed­dique, also known as Omar Mateen, was an Amer­i­can mass mur­derer who killed 49 peo­ple and wounded 58 oth­ers in a mass shoot­ing at the Pulse gay night­club in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016. He had been inter­viewed by the FBI three times and was on their radar because he had made com­ments sym­pa­thetic to ter­ror­ists and attended the same Florida mosque as a sui­cide bomber named Moner Abusalha, who had gone to Syria to blow up Syr­ian gov­ern­ment sol­diers in 2014.

When asked why Mateen was dropped from the FBI list, [For­mer FBI Direc­tor James] Comey indi­cated that the FBI’s con­cerns about Mateen were eased after a wit­ness told the bureau that Mateen got mar­ried, had a child and found steady work.(…)

Like­wise, the Boston Marathon ter­ror­ists, the Tsar­naev broth­ers had been inves­ti­gated and the FBI had even received warn­ings from Rus­sia of a pos­si­ble ter­ror attack. NBC reported: In March 2011, the FSB, the Russ­ian intel­li­gence agency that arose from the rem­nants of the KGB, sent a cable to the FBI with its con­cerns about Tamer­lan Tsar­naev and the Tsar­naev family. (…)

The let­ter was a page and a quar­ter long and very detailed. It included con­tact infor­ma­tion, with addresses and phone num­bers, for many of the mem­bers of the Tsar­naev fam­ily, includ­ing Tamer­lan and his mother .…in June 2011. The FBI inves­ti­ga­tion of Tamer­lan Tsar­naev was closed. Accord­ing to the report, “the assess­ment found no links to terrorism.”

Remem­ber the Fort Hood ter­ror­ist, Col. Nidal Hasan? An FBI-​run ter­ror­ism task force knew last Decem­ber that Hasan, an Army psy­chi­a­trist, sent 16 e-​mails to Anwar al-​Awlaki, a rad­i­cal Mus­lim cleric in Yemen who sup­ports vio­lence against the West.

When the Fort Hood Shoot­ing and the Boston Marathon Bomb­ing — and 911 – occurred, Robert Mueller was the FBI direc­tor. Could be a coin­ci­dence, but con­sider this 2008 report by Rowan Scarborough:

[The Coun­cil on American-​Islamic Rela­tions] trains FBI agents across the coun­try on Islam and how to treat Mus­lims. CAIR’s archived press releases show numer­ous instances of CAIR rep­re­sen­ta­tives train­ing the FBI, as well as the Marine Corps, local law enforce­ment and gov­ern­ment employees.

The FBI sev­ered for­mal ties with CAIR back in 2009, but the camel’s nose — in the form of a cor­po­rate mind­set — seems to have remained inside the tent for a few years after­ward. Is it still there?

There’s a new act­ing direc­tor, of course (Andrew McCabe), and a new nom­i­nee for the posi­tion, Christo­pher Wray. But chang­ing lead­er­ship is eas­ier than chang­ing the course of a bureau­cratic cul­ture. (It seems to me that the FBI’s present state is the result of a process imple­mented long before Don­ald Trump or even Barack Obama.) Also to be kept in mind, the FBI is a cog in the National Intel­li­gence wheel.

There are many who claim that our gov­ern­ment has been inten­tion­ally infil­trated by those who long to imple­ment fun­da­men­tal change, whether that change is moral, social and/​or spir­i­tual. Our most recent for­mer pres­i­dent was more open about his desire to shake the foun­da­tions of this coun­try and, to a cer­tain extent, he was suc­cess­ful. But he didn’t start that fire; he only kept it kindled.

Can Trump Admin­is­tra­tion can throw water on it? Time will tell. And, I sus­pect that much of the Orga­nized Left’s present tac­tics are intended to dis­trac­tion the Admin­is­tra­tion from get­ting done to this seri­ous business.

Remember this?

Omar Mir Seddique, also known as Omar Mateen, was an American mass murderer who killed 49 people and wounded 58 others in a mass shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016. He had been interviewed by the FBI three times and was on their radar because he had made comments sympathetic to terrorists and attended the same Florida mosque as a suicide bomber named Moner Abusalha, who had gone to Syria to blow up Syrian government soldiers in 2014.

When asked why Mateen was dropped from the FBI list, [Former FBI Director James] Comey indicated that the FBI’s concerns about Mateen were eased after a witness told the bureau that Mateen got married, had a child and found steady work.(…)

Likewise, the Boston Marathon terrorists, the Tsarnaev brothers had been investigated and the FBI had even received warnings from Russia of a possible terror attack. NBC reported: In March 2011, the FSB, the Russian intelligence agency that arose from the remnants of the KGB, sent a cable to the FBI with its concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev and the Tsarnaev family. (…)

The letter was a page and a quarter long and very detailed. It included contact information, with addresses and phone numbers, for many of the members of the Tsarnaev family, including Tamerlan and his mother . . . .in June 2011. The FBI investigation of Tamerlan Tsarnaev was closed. According to the report, “the assessment found no links to terrorism.”

Remember the Fort Hood terrorist, Col. Nidal Hasan? An FBI-run terrorism task force knew last December that Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, sent 16 e-mails to Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Muslim cleric in Yemen who supports violence against the West.

When the Fort Hood Shooting and the Boston Marathon Bombing—and 9/11–occurred, Robert Mueller was the FBI director. Could be a coincidence, but consider this 2008 report by Rowan Scarborough:

[The Council on American-Islamic Relations] trains FBI agents across the country on Islam and how to treat Muslims. CAIR’s archived press releases show numerous instances of CAIR representatives training the FBI, as well as the Marine Corps, local law enforcement and government employees.

The FBI severed formal ties with CAIR back in 2009, but the camel’s nose—in the form of a corporate mindset—seems to have remained inside the tent for a few years afterward. Is it still there?

There’s a new acting director, of course (Andrew McCabe), and a new nominee for the position, Christopher Wray. But changing leadership is easier than changing the course of a bureaucratic culture. (It seems to me that the FBI’s present state is the result of a process implemented long before Donald Trump or even Barack Obama.) Also to be kept in mind, the FBI is a cog in the National Intelligence wheel.

There are many who claim that our government has been intentionally infiltrated by those who long to implement fundamental change, whether that change is moral, social and/or spiritual. Our most recent former president was more open about his desire to shake the foundations of this country and, to a certain extent, he was successful. But he didn’t start that fire; he only kept it kindled.

Can Trump Administration can throw water on it?  Time will tell. And, I suspect that much of the Organized Left’s present tactics are intended to distraction the Administration from getting done to this serious business.
