Elder Patriot – Under Barack Obama the FBI became a cesspool of politically based decisions and lawlessness. And, worse, it now fails to meet even its most basic mission – to prevent terrorist attacks even when the evidence portending the attack hits them like a sledgehammer.
It is for this reason that Florida Governor Rick Scott has called for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign.
Scott’s call for Wray to step aside came after the bureau admitted it had failed to “follow procedures” following a tip that Nikolas Cruz was about to launch his deadly attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School:
“The FBI’s failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable,” Scott said in a statement. “The FBI has admitted that they were contacted last month by a person who called to inform them of Cruz’s ‘desire to kill people,’ and ‘the potential of him conducting a school shooting.’”
“Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn’t going to cut it. An apology will never bring these 17 Floridians back to life or comfort the families who are in pain. The families will spend a lifetime wondering how this could happen, and an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need […] The FBI director needs to resign.”
It’s become obvious that the top management of the FBI needs to be completely overhauled so that not only are the bad actors eliminated, but the organization is realigned to catch them before their politics or malfeasance threatens the integrity of our elections or the safety of the citizens they are charged with protecting.
It’s also become obvious that aside from shuffling some chairs Wray is not prepared to make the drastic changes that must be made.
