FBI admits it hasn't cracked single terror case with Patriot Act snooping power

Big Brother is Incompetent

  • For some strange reason all of this unconstitutional spying did not prevent 9-11, the Fort Hood massacre, the Boston Bombing or the Pamela Geller Cartoon attack.
  • There are two possible explanations:  #1) The government is run by incompetent idiots or #2) Terrorists are not the real target of government spying.  Pick one.

(Washington Times)  -  FBI agents can’t point to any major terrorism cases they’ve cracked thanks to the key snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in a report Thursday that could complicate efforts to keep key parts of the law operating.
Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that between 2004 and 2009, the FBI tripled its use of bulk collection under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations.
The new report adds ammunition to those opponents, with the inspector general concluding that no major cases have been broken by use of the Patriot Act’s records-snooping provisions.
“The agents we interviewed did not identify any major case developments that resulted from use of the records obtained in response to Section 215 orders,” the inspector general concluded — though he said agents did view the material they gathered as “valuable” in developing other leads or corroborating information.
Increasingly, that meant scooping up information on those who were not targets of a terrorism investigation.

Former NSA Head Exposes Agency's Real Crimes

William Binney, a legendary NSA mathematician developed the revolutionary logic and architecture that is now used to spy on everybody in the world. When the NSA decided to use his programs on US citizens he became one of the biggest whistleblowers in the history of the NSA. He started the debate and the avalanche of understanding in regards to illegal surveillance, and is revealing inside knowledge on some of the biggest government secrets to date.

Importing Muslim Terror
It is our official policy (as passed by Congress) to deliberately import Muslims into the U.S. from regions exploding with Islamic terrorism.  The Tsarnaev brothers came from Russia's war torn province of Chechnya.  The Russians even gave us a heads up about the family, and nothing was done.
My theory is the government wants terror attacks to use as an excuse to grow the 1984 Big Brother Surveillance Police State.
