  •  The FBI = Full of Shit Losers (3+ / 0-)

    The FBI didn't just "get a tip" on Tamarlan Tsarnaev. They interviewed him in 2011, then flagged his departure to Russia. But they didn't even notice when he returned, "because so much time elapsed".

    That's a load of bullshit. The FBI, like the rest of the US surveillance state, isn't even deleting the vast records of perfectly harmless or otherwise none of their business activity by Americans and visitors, after many years. Including this message you're reading now, that the NSA is capturing and keeping in vast storage archives paid for with your (wasted) money.

    This is the FBI that got a call from its Arizona office warning that Arab foreigners were training to fly jet planes, but not takeoff of land them, and the FBI just ignored it. Then those people flew jet planes into our buildings. And the FBI got its surveillance state.

    One of the signs of a police state is when the police fail to stop a criminal they had tabs on already, the police don't pay any price. Or get changed at all except to get more power and money.

    This police state sucks.
