Dr. F is not the progressive type characterized in the video of TGT. He's just a character that loves to get the other side going and arguing and then bring in the minions for the screech and destroy mission. All in good fun. On the other hand that video was the clearest most articulate description i've yet heard of the progressive's tactics and goals.

Couch, what amazes me is everyone positively leaps to conspiracy rather than obvious incompetence. You can bet your ass the senior ranks FBI were playing an extended edition of "who's on first" once the bombs went off with everyone scrambling to see if someone - anyone - had any of the bases covered.

And therein lies the persistent problem with all of our investigative and intelligence services: heavy stratification, explicit and implicit fire-walling, rampant compartmentalization, ownership issues, and suspicion of other offices and agencies. Hell, they didn't track the older brother's Russia trip due to a frigging spelling error (and the fact they would have used exact name matching versus something like Levenshtein distance string approximation is downright scary in its own right). So, rather than a conspiracy, you can bet your ass it's nothing more than the symptoms of an agency Keystone Cops routine playing out in the light of day.

Yes of course, like minded independents all talking off a remarkably similar script. You guys are down right agreeable today as compared to previous rant fests. Are we getting sentimental in our old age? Must be the common bond of mourning of the passing of one of our most revered pioneers.

No question Jh that it could merely, and most likely is, a case of bureaucratic quicksand and task shifting with hints of bureaucratic lazyness or just making a conclusion which was not later supported. Maybe it was the 2000th time they'd made the call and finally they missed this one. It certainly could be the case. They do the check, quick investigation and close the case out, leaving the info in the database while they move onto other work.

It seems rare that questions of such substance get raised so quickly, however, that might only be the internet at work. I wanted to put them on the thread as they had not be3en discussed or noted. At the end of the day, one still has to ask: "what if.....?"

We only learn of shocking things like Operation Mockingird a long time after the fact.

Had to have dinner and talk gardening, but he was a pussy compared to his namesake.

Scholars estimate that his military campaigns caused the deaths of 17 million people, amounting to about 5% of the world population

Today: The F.B.I. responded by checking government databases for any criminal records or immigration violations as well as activity on Web sites that promote extremist views and activities. The investigators found no derogatory information, officials said.

In other words, the Russian FSB and SVR (KGB successors) did a better job tracking a US citizen who was a threat than did the FBI.

And, just guessing, but in a Post-9/11 world the amount of data to sift for threats has led to FBI senior management pressure to close leads as quickly as possible and move on to the next. I also see on just now checking, the FBI IT project to get off paper, which was stalled in 2006 is, like the FAA and IRS projects, still a complete disaster this many years later. So agents don't have a significant technical threat assessment or tracking capability, bummer.

Agents probably just get on google most of the time and see what pops up - not particularly sophisticated. Hell, if they just switched to Salesforce.com and tracked suspects like sales leads they'd probably be miles ahead of where they are now.

A successful thwart?


Look just because we are Canadian dosn't mean we are all probably building canoes in the basement in anticipation of another fine canoing season. What is so bloody special about constructing a "successful" thwart anyway? Are you mocking us?

We just nabbed some real bonafide El Quieda sh#t disturbers and all you can say is nice job on your canoe? Tell you what Ron . We'll hand them over to you. Nevadastan is a bit like Guantanamo bay so we'll just package them up and send em down to the waterboard specialists for a little softening up. Send us your usual nice facebook pictures.

I'd like to give a shout-out to the Cannuck's today. Nice job, RMCP!

Despite all my Canadian trash-talking, they are our brother-in-arms. Thank You!
