FBI Could Not Have Stopped Boston Bombing Because They SUCK

In what is increasingly coming as no surprise to anyone who is liberty-minded and knows how corrupt and degenerate Federal law enforcement is, the FBI has stated that they could not have prevented the Boston Marathon Bombing:

The F.B.I. has concluded that there was little its agents could have done to prevent the Boston Marathon bombings, according to law enforcement officials, rejecting criticism that it could have better monitored one of the suspects before the attack.

So let's get this straight: there was nothing that the FBI could do to stop the Boston bombing in spite of the clearly dozens of law enforcement officers and agents on the scene. They had been monitoring the Tsarnaev brothers previously and dropped their surveillance, probably because they like spying on white teenage girls more. And, assuming that the official story is true, they would still be unable to have stopped those boys.

I'm not buying it. This is typical of any organization or institution that is able to get money without having to worry about facing the lose of said money. Instead of taking professional responsibility for their failures as a law enforcement agency, the FBI has held their hands up in the air and said, "We couldn't have done anything".

Notice too that there are no calls for the agency to lose money as a result of their incompetence. Instead we will probably see this report be used as an excuse to give them more taxpayer dollars and expand their already overreaching, unconstitutional powers.

But it gets better (emphasis mine):

The most recent criticism of the F.B.I. from Congress came on Wednesday, when Representative William Keating, Democrat of Massachusetts, sent a letter to James B. Comey, the incoming F.B.I. director. In the letter, Mr. Keating demanded that the bureau respond to several questions about its actions in the years before the attack.

“What I am looking to do is identify our security shortcomings and change them,” Mr. Keating said in the letter. “Without forthright information from the F.B.I., we are prevented from taking the critical steps needed to protect the American public.”

Mr. Keating said in a telephone interview that the F.B.I. had refused three requests by the House Homeland Security Committee to testify about the attack, citing an investigation. “Until they give us facts that we can review as an independent branch of government, I don’t think that’s particularly useful what they think,” he said of the F.B.I.’s conclusion that there was little it could do to stop the attacks.

They are literally refusing to be held accountable for their incompetence. They are acting like they are avoid Congressional oversight and thus, they are a domestic army answerable only to whatever asshole is head of their bureau, with some concessions to whatever asshole is Attorney General.

At this point, I think it is clear that this law enforcement agency should be shut down. They have clearly done next to nothing to keep Americans safe and have done much more harm than good over the past several decades. They routinely stage entrapment operations of terrorists, which is a dangerous operation given that one wrong move and the FBI-encouraged terrorist could actually kill people, much like Timothy McVeigh.

They have also spied on the American public without warrants, gone undercover in peaceful militias encouraging them to become violent, and generally caused more public mayhem and civil unrest.

And when they are caught screwing up, they publicly state that they are responsible for their own incompetence. All you FBI agents can go fuck yourselves.
