Democrats-Obama Asking FBI to Retask Agents from Counter- Terrorism to Bank Fraud

Will Malven

Are they kidding me?

This story comes from News Channel 8 in Washington DC:

FBI may shift counterterror agents to anti-fraud
posted 02/11/09 6:48 pm

Washington - With thousands of fraud investigations under way, the FBI (web) is considering shifting agents away from counterterrorism work to help sort through the wreckage of the financial meltdown. FBI Deputy Director John Pistole told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the bureau may reassign some of the positions that were reallocated to anti-terrorism work after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Such a move would be a further sign of the government breaking with the Bush administration's priorities, which pledged to assign every available resource to averting another terrorist attack.

Pistole told Congress his investigators have 530 active corporate fraud investigations, and 38 of them involve some of the biggest names in corporate finance - cases directly related to the current crisis.

Senator Patrick "Leaky" Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has been urging the FBI to put those guilty of committing mortgage fraud behind bars. Now I'm all for putting criminals behind bars, but really Senator Leahy are you quite sure you have your priorities straight? Mortgage fraud may be a serious crime, but preventing terrorists from killing several thousand American citizens might be slightly more important that your little Liberal anti-capitalism crusade.

Liberals have never really believed in the war against terrorism. Just as they proved during the Clinton Administration, Democrats view terrorism as a subject for criminal investigation. That is one reason that they were so determined in their fight against every action taken by the Bush Administration to combat terrorism abroad as well as here at home (the other reason was, of course, partisanship and Democrats' lust for power at any cost).

Democrat's failure to take the threat of terrorism seriously is the reason that President Bill Clinton failed to act on the three occasions he was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter by the Sudanese government. It is the reason that very little was done to combat terrorism by the Clinton Administration following the first World Trade Center bombing back in 1993, the reason that very little was done by President Clinton following the bombing of Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, the devastating attack against the USS Cole, and it was the reason that the Clinton Administration failed to take the legislative action necessary to ease the ability of FBI and CIA agents to communicate with each other (in actuality, with the concerted efforts of then Deputy Attorney General Jaime Gorelick they made it worse).

Of course the best indicator of Democrat cluelessness as to the threat that terrorism posed during the Clinton Administration is President Clinton's repeated refusals to take Osama bin Ladin when the Sudan offered him up on a silver platter.

Democrats have never since WWII shown any ability whatsoever to defend our nation in any meaningful way (well...okay...LBJ did show more moxie than any Liberal since then in escalating the war in Vietnam and he deserves kudos for that effort, but then he bailed on the whole deal in the face of determined political resistance from within his own party).

It is possible that this shift will not happen, particularly if enough people apply political pressure on the Obama Administration to prevent it from happening, but given the Democrats' propensity for underestimating the importance of combating terrorism, don't be surprised when it happens.

To my knowledge, terrorists have not altered their expressed desire to attack America, kill American civilians, or destroy "the great Satan." A simple change of administration here in America and a softer tone from Obama's White House towards those who wish to destroy us is unlikely to alter that attitude.

Prepare to witness another terrorist attack here on our own soil; given Obama's actions so far, it is more than likely to occur.

Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
