What is Happening With the FBI?
In a curious series of statements, Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) spokesman Bill Carter said this when
questioned by Fred Lucas of CNS News about contacts
between the FBI and the Council on American-Islamic Relations
doesn't operate in a vacuum…the FBI works with them to investigate
matters and to ask for their cooperation in fighting the war on terror
at home…there are elements
in any group that might be a concern…you could say that about every
Just because some are criminals doesn't mean everyone is a criminal."
This brings to mind several
problems with the FBI’s attitude toward CAIR:
- Numerous FBI senior staff,
including the director, have attended CAIR dinners, award
presentations, and gatherings. As the FBI apparently has no
problem with agents associating socially with CAIR officials with
ties to Islamic terrorism, may we ask when the FBI will sit down
to dinner with American NAZI Party members or the Ku Klux Klan?
After all, “… just because
some are criminals
doesn’t mean everyone is a criminal.”
- CAIR actively opposes every law
and policy designed to protect the United States from attack…the FBI is
charged with enforcing these laws…why does senior FBI leadership feel
the need to break bread with members
of a group which are, effectively,
stabbing them in the back at every opportunity?
Carter goes on to say that the FBI works with
CAIR to “…ask for their cooperation
in fighting the war on terror”…but
is there one single example
of CAIR lending support to the FBI that has resulted in an arrest on
Islamic terrorism charges?
(If so, we
haven’t been able to find it.)
Following the devastating attacks of 9-11, not
to mention the attacks on the US Embassies in Africa, the attack on the
USS Cole, and the Khobar Towers (among many others), one could excuse
the average citizen beginning to wonder about the FBI’s attitude…and
what drives it.
One thing is certain…J. Edgar Hoover would not
recognize the new FBI.
How sad ....
