These Are The People Keeping Us "Safe"?

Stretch sent in this story about the FBI catching - and releasing - the #2 man for Al Quaeda back in 2002. There's another link in that story that's worth noting:

FBI did not investigate Fort Hood shooter 'because of political correctness' according to new report

In emails to a known terrorist, the man charged with killing 13 people in a 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas, expressed his support for suicide bombings and killing civilians — glaring signs that the FBI did not act on but should have, a report has claimed.

Army Maj. Nidal Hasan told a radical Islamic cleric that he advocated using suicide bombers and that he believed it was OK to kill civilians.


Got it? One of the largest mass shootings in US history and the FBI could have prevented it, had they not been more concerned about being politically correct. Hasan was talking to the #2 man in Al Quaeda, telling him that he agreed with their agenda and his willingness to murder civilians to further their aims. And no one did a damned thing, because it wouldn't have been politically correct.

Let me put this plainly: We. Are. Screwed.

What other plots are out there right now that will result in dead Americans all because the squishy idiots don't want to hurt feelings? It is positively dumbfounding that the FBI would have ignored these signs under the PC umbrella - that they would rather leave this ticking time bomb running loose on an Army base just hoping that he won't snap.

Well, they chose wrong, and as a result of that some 13 people died. Because of rampant incompetence coupled with irrational fear of offending people, our soldiers were put at unnecessary risk and wound up paying the butcher's bill for the FBI's idiocy.

The amazing thing is that we haven't been attacked more giving the stunning incompetence on display...

That is all.

Articles like this only go to prove one thing FEAR is a strong component and we should not fear being locked up for an indefinite period of time because we pissed off the government.

Sadly, because these people are politically connected they most certainly won't have to fear being arrested as an accomplice, nor being fired for incompetency.

When the Muslim Brotherhood has representatives in the DOJ, FBI, and the White House, how could it not be what happens? The FBI has purged training materials of any references to the Brotherhood and other violent islamists, so the new agents are guaranteed to be useless...

Got that right. I concluded long ago that the only thing saving us is that the terrorists are even more stupid and less competent than the Feebs and company.

I mean, look at what one jerk with an AR-15 did around DC a few years ago. Then picture several such teams around every major city in the country. What do you think would happen?

Wolfwalker - I'm been saying the same thing for years. Who needs to smuggle a shoe bomb onto an airplane when you can terrorize an entire city with a scoped rifle?

I shudder to think what would happen if 4-5 scumbags across the country simultaneously targeted elementary schools or malls or whatever. The entire country would likely shut down for a period of time.

As awful as 9/11 was, can you imagine if the terrorists flew an airplane into a packed stadium during a football game?

We should count our blessings that the "evildoers" are indeed incompetent......
