The days of the FBI being the most elite law enforcement agency in the world is over. The days of J. Edgar Hoover, Eliot Ness and other famous crime busters is over and the new FBI is the result of the leadership of Robert Mueller, James Comey and Christopher Wray.
It is sad to see what they have become and until new leadership emerges by someone willing to shake up the entire bureau, and remake it from the top on down to the guy that cleans the toilets, it will never get any better.
Former Rep Bob Barr said:
The FBI now has morphed into a pale reflection of its former self — almost a parody. Last week, in a scene I never dreamt I would see, a group of FBI personnel (“officials,” according to one account) were photographed kneeling before some of the protesters who had wreaked havoc on the streets of our nation’s capital city. The kneelers all wore protective vests with “FBI” emblazoned thereon and were equipped with holstered sidearms.
It is unclear whether these individuals knelt out of fear, were ordered by their superiors at the Bureau to assume such a submissive pose, or whether each was doing so because they personally supported the protesters and rioters. What is clear is that the display confirms that the Federal Bureau of Investigation in this 21st century has lost sight of its mission and purpose, and apparently no longer even acts on its own intelligence information.
As Attorney General William Barr stated on May 31st, mixed in with the protesters, demonstrators, looters and violent thugs who smashed windows, burned churches and engaged in all manner of other violent acts in cities across the country were elements of antifa and other extremist organizations. The FBI is a component of the U.S. Department of Justice which is headed by the Attorney General, and if he states that antifa and other extremist groups are mixed in with the thousands of other riot participants, we can assume the FBI was aware of such evidence. The Attorney General also publicly declared firmly that it was time “to confront and stop [the violence].”
