Bureaucrats Against Terrorism
Last week, the Secretary of State took a break from preaching about class warfare and condemning Youtube videos, to state that the FBI had arrived in Libya. One might have thought that it was good news, and fairly swift action from the U.S. government in making sure that an investigation is properly conducted and those responsible are brought to justice.
However, more than two weeks have passed since the attack on the consulate in Benghazi and the FBI is still investigation the attack from afar. Why the hold up? Well the official version goes something like this:
They had difficulty, and we understand there was some bureaucratic infighting between the FBI and Justice Department on the one hand, and the State Department on the other, and so it took them longer than they would have liked to get into country. They’ve now gotten there. But they still are unable to get permission to go to Benghazi.
For terrorists worldwide this should come as great news: They’ll never risk getting caught because the Great Satan is falling over while trying to navigate its own bureaucratic maze of protocols and agencies. Before the FBI finds and files form A456b to the Ministry of Compliance, the terrorists will have had plenty of time to sneak away to a remote cave not to be seen again in a decade.
