[Ed. – Let’s not forget the biggest fail of all. As the New York Times reported on May 2, 2002, ‘The F.B.I. knew by 1996 of a specific threat that terrorists in Al Qaeda, Mr. bin Laden’s network, might use a plane in a suicide attack against the headquarters of the C.I.A. or another large federal building in the Washington area, the law enforcement officials acknowledged.’ These latest findings place that Times report in a new and terrifying context.]
A new study released this week by the DOJ Inspector General found that the FBI dropped investigations on the Islamic terrorists behind several deadly terrorist attacks.
Pulse Nightclub terrorists Omar Mateen murdered 49 gays on a dance floor before shooting himself.
The Boston Marathon bombers killed three and injured 264 people. And then it took the FBI days to figure out the identity of the killers.
The FBI was looking at these individuals but dropped the investigations before these Islamists went on their deadly killing sprees.
Of course, the FBI had plenty of resources available to spy on Donald Trump and his family and to send 25 agents and a CNN camera crew to Florida to arrest Roger Stone and his wife at 6 AM in the morning.
