It surprised even the closest member of the White House staff. In a swift turn of events FBI Director James Comey was fired from his position, informed of his sacking by a news broadcast while visiting the Los Angeles field office yesterday afternoon. What followed was a bizarre cacophony of voices from the Washington establishment, questioning the president’s reasoning. Many on the left who were critical of the FBI director turned coat and publicly lambasted the decision as interfering on an investigation targeting the president himself.
Precisely at the moment of Comey’s firing, the FBI had been struggling to find their way around an investigation alleging Russian interference during the last presidential election. It would have revealed a number of possible outcomes. First, that the Russians had, in fact, manipulated elections results. This would place the United States in war footing, as such actions by a foreign sovereign would have been an act of war. This is a dicey predicament reminiscent of America’s most recent foreign adventures, which saw the country go to war on faulty evidence, that of placing WMD’s in the command of Saddam Hussein.
Moreover, if their investigations were to discover Russian interference, it would bring the unpalatable revelation that the FBI is ineffective in protecting the US from trained foreign operatives. We may reach the conclusion that their successes as a counter-intelligence organization can only be counted on if used on ordinary Americans. Many of whom they have no business investigating.
Another and equally troubling possibility is that the Bureau engages in staging events to affect policy. There are still noises around the country about successful terrorist attacks on US soil as being faked, including 9/11, Boston Bombing and the San Bernardino Attacks where the timeline of the suspect’s actions were impossible to reconcile.
The latest of a series of failures saw the ‘World’s Most Powerful Law Enforcement Organization’ admit to paying $900,000 to access an iPhone. The mobile device was alleged to have been owned by the suspected terrorists of the 2015 San Bernardino attacks that saw 14 individuals dead and 22 injured.
The American people are tired of the FBI’s bungling and buffoonery. Remember, they are one of the reasons why we now have the Department of Homeland Security. That makes the Bureau redundant, in certain ways. Every time the Bureau fails the American people takes a deduction on their right to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness.
The president would be wise to abolish the Federal Bureau of Investigations and place more of the policing where it belongs, in the laps of local police organizations. With the Department of Homeland Security in the hands of a proven leader, there will only be some lapse in the security until integration or replacement of the Bureau has been made complete. But, it almost instantly ends the stupidity being perpetrated on Americans by this rougue-sh organization – America’s perfect criminals.
