“The father of the man suspected in multiple bombings throughout New York and New Jersey this weekend says he reported his son to the FBI as a potential terrorist. Officials have confirmed that Mohammed Rahami reported his son Ahmed Khan Rahami in 2014, but law enforcement took little action following the alert.
“I called the FBI two years ago!” the elder Rahami told a swarm of reporters surrounding him in front of his family’s restaurant, First American Fried Chicken in Elizabeth, New Jersey.”
“The New York Times confirmed with U.S. federal officials that Rahami did indeed report his son as a potential terrorist. Ahmed Rahami had allegedly stabbed his brother in the leg, and spent three months in jail over the incident, though he was never charged and, thus, did not have a criminal record.
Rahami’s report on his son was reportedly “passed to the Joint Terrorism Task Force led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Newark. Officers opened what is known as an assessment, the most basic of F.B.I. investigations, and interviewed the father, who then recanted.” The Times quotes their sources as saying that the elder Rahami later said he had only reported his son “out of anger.”
Are these the same assholes that investigated Hillary?
Of course, of course
But all they are crying about now is that they are underfunded
They need more money to carry out proper investigations
Sounds like they need a whole Dept. make over from top to bottom
They spend countless resources invetigating patriot groups, militias, white supremacists etc.
But when they have the real deal in their hands they drop the ball
Just like the Boston bombing
They were handed intel from the Russians and they ignored it
Maybe a little less politico ball licking and a little more due diligence
