If a church had that kind of history, its charter would have been pulled long ago and those responsible for aiding and abetting terrorism would be locked up in Guantanamo. You know it, and I know it. But the FBI closes its eyes to this kind of violent and explosive hatred when those responsible are followers of Muhammad.
FBI Director Robert Mueller
It’s not just that government collects so much data on Americans that bothers me.
It’s what the government does and doesn’t do with the data that makes it worse.
Take, for example, the feisty interchange between Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, and FBI Director Robert Mueller last week.
Gohmert was grilling Mueller over the FBI’s abject failure at preventing the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing by neglecting to investigate their mosque, founded by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted of supporting terrorism. He also pointed out the FBI had a tip from Russia that one of the Tsarnaev brothers had been radicalized in a visit to Chechnya prior to the attack.
“The FBI never canvassed Boston mosques until four days after the April 15 attacks,” Gohmert said. “If the Russians tell you that someone has been radicalized and you go check and see the mosque that they went to, then you get the articles of incorporation as I have for the group that created the Boston mosque where these Tsarnaevs attended and you find out the name Alamoudi.”
Mueller accused Gohmert of not having his facts straight, for which he should be cited for contempt of Congress. It is Mueller who didn’t have his facts straight – even admitting he didn’t know about who founded the mosque.
