FBI – A History of Incompetence

“We can’t continue in this country with an intelligence agency with the record the FBI has….You have a record of an agency that’s failed, and it’s failed again and again and again.”
Thomas Kean, Co-Chairman of 9/11 Commission

Despite its hoary reputation as an extraordinary police force, the FBI is a notoriously inept organization.[1]

For several decades, the FBI has been an extremely mediocre law enforcement agency.

There are dozens of examples of how ineffective the FBI has been over the years.

Long time FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was busy cross-dressing as ‘Mary,’ or frolicking with young boys to pay attention to the growing Mafia problem.[2]

When Hoover was not doing any of the above, he was attacking Blacks, civil rights activists, Vietnam war protesters and students, targeting homosexuals and spying on all and sundry.

In 1996, the FBI badly bungled the investigation of the Atlanta bombing at the Centennial Olympic Park.

Stupid FBI agents leaked to the media that Richard Jewell, the security guard who alerted authorities to the bomb and saved many lives, was the prime suspect. Jewell was completely innocent and later several media organizations settled lawsuits filed by him for libel. The real bomber was the anti-abortion sicko Eric Randolph.

Despite multiple warnings of an attack on the homeland, the bureau failed to take action that could have prevented 9/11.

Internal FBI Spy

So inefficient is the FBI that it took the bureau 22 years to catch the notorious spy Robert Hansen, who leaked America’s precious secrets to the Russians from 1979 to 2001.

Hansen’s spying caused immeasurable damage to America and the execution of several Russian agents who worked for the United States.

Guess where Robert Hansen worked?

Ha ha ha, Hansen worked right inside the FBI.

At one time, the FBI schmucks even assigned Hansen with the task of investigating penetration of the FBI by spies. It’s like Europe’s Jews asking Hitler to find out who was gassing the Jews!

When Hansen was finally arrested in February 2001, he mocked FBI agents with the right question: What took you so long?[3]

The Hansen mess was just one in a long line of huge goof-ups by the hopelessly incompetent FBI.

Federal Bozos

FBI agents failed to act on the warnings from Russian security forces about the Boston marathon bombers.

FBI bozos bungled the April 2015 gun purchase background check of Charleston church killer Dylan Roof.[4]

FBI agents badly screwed up the investigation of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen. Before Mateen’s attack on the gay bar, FBI agents interviewed him twice over comments relating to ties with terrorists but failed to do a thorough job and closed the case prematurely. On June 12, 2016, Mateen went on a killing spree that left 49 people dead and over 50 injured.[5]

Although Russian intelligence officials had warned the FBI about the two Chechen brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the arrogant FBI agents failed to adequately investigate the threat tip. The FBI’s incompetence resulted in a carnage when the Tsarnaev brothers bombed the 2013 Boston Marathon in which three people were killed and 264 injured.

FBI crackheads messed up Oregon attorney Brandon Mayfield’s life by falsely linking him to the 2004 Madrid train bombing. American taxpayers had to ultimately pay $2 million to Mayfield as compensation for the FBI’s incompetence and multiple criminal actions.

In the weeks following 9/11, the FBI rounded up 1,200 Muslims and foreigners in the U.S. and tortured them, earning the lifelong enmity of angry, innocent people. FBI historian Tim Weiner writes, “Some were beaten and abused during “their continued detention in harsh conditions of confinement,” as the Justice department’s inspector general later reported.”[6]

In America “assault and abuse” are often narrative control euphemisms for torture.

FBI’s serial abuse of National Security Letters, which combine a subpoena and a gag order, is legendary. No approval of a judge is necessary to send out National Security Letters to Internet service providers, telephone companies, e-mail providers, employers, hospitals, etc., forcing them to divulge information on a person without his consent or being informed of it.

Incompetent FBI agents failed to arrest notorious White American pedophile William James Vahey when they had an opportunity to do so in Miami on March 12, 2014. Vahey committed suicide a few days later.[7]

Despite spending enormous resources and assigning dozens of agents, the FBI never caught or even identified the infamous 1971 hijacker ‘D.B. Cooper’ who fled with $200,000 in ransom money.

FBI agents were probably jerking off when former CIA agent and notorious spy Edward Lee Howard, who was under their surveillance in Santa Fe (New Mexico), fled to the erstwhile Soviet Union on September 21, 1985.[8]

Neither the FBI agents following Howard nor the video surveillance feed of his house alerted the idiots to the various tricks the former CIA agent played on them (planting a ‘dummy’ in the passenger seat while returning from the restaurant, jumping from the car around a corner, the pre-taped call to the psychiatrist, etc.) before flying off to Helsinki where he sought asylum at the Soviet embassy.

Considered “one of the most damaging spies in U.S. history” in news reports at the time of his escape, Howard betrayed CIA spy Adolf Tolkachev, (a Soviet electronics engineer with knowledge of military aircraft) to the Russians.

Tolkachev, an extremely valuable CIA asset, was arrested by the KGB and executed on September 24, 1986.

FBI=Chronic Liars

Even FBI officials admit the bureau is full of liars.

Pat Gray, who became acting director of the FBI after Edgar Hoover’s death, wrote in his memoir that the bureau’s top agents “lied to each other and conned each other as much as they could.”[9]

FBI agents and lab technicians lied in testimony about hair samples in the 1980s and 1990s. Over 200 people were convicted in federal and state courts based on the FBI’s lies and at least 12 people were executed.[10]

Sometimes, it’s hard to distinguish between FBI’s incompetence and lies.

It’s hard to say whether the FBI’s leak to the media in 1996 that security guard Richard Jewell was the prime suspect in the Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park bombing was a lie or shoddy investigative work. In reality, the actions of Jewell saved the lives of hundreds of people.

The FBI stings in the twenty-first century to arrest crackpots and idiots on charges of terrorism amid a blaze of self-serving publicity are often based on a plot of lies.

FBI’s lies prompted Andrew Napolitano, former judge of the Superior court of New Jersey, to write: “will FBI agents who lie, cheat, break the law, and testify falsely be brought to justice? …. Does the FBI work for us or do we work for it?”[11]

Never Ending Mess-Ups

The chronicle of FBI’s mess-ups is never ending.

FBI agent Richard Miller traded precious intelligence information with the KGB in exchange for sex with Svetlana Ogorodnikov and $15,000.

FBI bozos made a terrible mess of Ruby Ridge in 1992 and the Waco siege in 1993 angering many Americans including Timothy McVeigh (who later blasted a federal building in Oklahoma in 1995 and killed several hundred and injured so many).

Despite a counter-terrorism budget of $300 million per year when Bill Clinton was President, the FBI under director Louis Freeh did a lousy job as he was distracted by other events like the Chinese spy scandal and Khobar Towers housing complex bombing in 1996.

Failure to prevent 9/11 was easily the FBI’s worst goof-up in a long history of preventable disasters.

Former Special Agent Coleen Rowley has described in letters to senior FBI officers how badly the bureau bungled in preventing 9/11.[12]

FBI’s rank incompetence and serial lies are matched only by the sick behavior of its agents who now focus on stupid stings to catch mentally handicapped people to boost their arrest record and bask in media glory.

FBI’s actions in Orlando, Boston and elsewhere to disregard media requests under FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) is most likely a ploy to cover up its gross incompetence.

Despite employing several thousand cyber-technologists, the FBI messed up recovery of data from the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone and then got into a nasty fight with Apple.[13]

In 2014, Ahmad Khan Rahami’s father told the FBI his son was a terrorist.

Yet the FBI bozos failed to act appropriately on the information and in September 2016 Rahami bombed neighborhoods in NYC and northern New Jersey injuring 29 people.[14]

Thomas Kean, Co-Chairman of the 9/11 Commission, delivered a blistering critique on the FBI: “We can’t continue in this country with an intelligence agency with the record the FBI has….You have a record of an agency that’s failed, and it’s failed again and again and again.”[15]

Time and again, the FBI’s failures have shown that the bureau’s legendary investigation skills are mostly fiction.

The few successes of the FBI have come only because of large bribes (a multi-million dollar bribe to a Russian traitor for information that led to the arrest of the FBI Agent/notorious Russian Spy Robert Hansen in the 1980s, bribes to the Klan in the 1960s, a $1 million check to the Unabomber’s brother, a never ending supply of money to snitches/informants, etc.).

After it was informed about the serial sex predator Larry Nassar, the sports doctor, the bureau took almost 12 months before it found the time to interview him. In the meantime, Dr. Nassar is alleged to have molested another 40 young girls.

Florida School Shooting

Despite receiving multiple strong tips about threats by Nikolas Cruz, the bungling idiots at the FBI neglected to investigate the teen who went on to kill 17 people at the Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018.

A woman close to the Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz called the FBI on January 5, 2018, and told the bureau about the danger posed by the disturbed teenager.

Some months earlier (in September, 2017), another person had complained to the FBI that a person named nikolas cruz had posted a comment on Google’s video site, YouTube, on September 24, 2017: “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.”

Despite the multiple warnings, the FBI failed to take any action against Nikolas Cruz.

Was it because Nikolas Cruz was a young White teenager?

Well, who can fathom the idiocy of the FBI agents.

On February 14, 2018, the 19-year-old disturbed teenager Nikolas Cruz took a AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle and multiple small capacity magazines and massacred 17 people and injured 16 others at the Stoneman Douglas High School.[16]

A few days after the tragedy, top officials of the FBI fessed up to the bureau’s incompetence.

But it was too late!

So many precious young lives were lost because of the bureau’s gross incompetence.

Federal Bungling Idiots

If you ask me, FBI should be renamed as the Federal Bungling Idiots.

A hopelessly thuggish police agency, the FBI has stifled dissent on dozens of occasions, frequently exaggerates national security threats, often harasses and unjustly arrests people exercising their right to protest.

Victims of the FBI’s illegal actions include Blacks (remember COINTELPRO?), anti-war protesters, civil-rights activists, environment supporters and native Indians.

The FBI illegally wiretapped the phones of Dr. Martin Luther King) and infiltrated the ranks of protesting organizations on multiple occasions.

The chronicle of FBI’s abusive behavior extends over several decades.

President Trump’s repeated attacks on the FBI in 2018 should please many people who suffered at the FBI’s hands.[17]
