(National Sentinel) PC FBI: In another example of just how broken the FBI is after eight years of Left-wing politicization by Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch, a damning new report documents how the New Mexico police were forced to step up and take down a suspected terrorist training camp after the bureau delayed, demurred, and stalled.
Islamic extremist Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was arrested last week at a compound in New Mexico. He was allegedly training children to commit school shootings.
Siraj ibn Wahhaj is the son of a Brooklyn imam who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
The Clarion Project wrote an extensive report documenting the FBI’s reluctance to act, which is mostly due to the fact that during the Obama years no one in federal law enforcement was either permitted to call Islamic extremism by that name or recognize it as a true threat to Americans.
Per The Clarion Project:
The FBI did not act decisively, even as the compound prepared for war and the children were in peril, especially the missing boy who was almost certainly there and whom the FBI knew was in desperate need of medication.
Yet instead of searching the property themselves, what did the FBI do?
They asked the neighbor, Jason Badger, to wear a hidden camera and risk his life by approaching an armed, Islamic extremist compound.
The FBI placed the compound under surveillance for at least two months before the raid, hoping to get a positive identification of the boy’s presence there—even though the extremists at the compound knew identification had to be prevented and had taken visible measures to make sure it didn’t happen.
The Badgers didn’t like the idea of having Islamist extremist neighbors who illegally squatted on their property. They filed a petition to have them evicted.
Their request for eviction—a very brazen move on the part of the Badgers—was rejected by a judge in June.
During an August 7 news conference, a reporter asked why that wasn’t enough for the authorities to go in. The police spokesperson said it was a civil matter and not grounds for a search warrant. The extremists and starving children got to stay.
The trigger for the raid was when the New Mexico police were provided a message by the authorities in Georgia.
A message had come out of the compound. It said the children were starving and they needed food and water.
The New Mexico authorities decided to go in on their own search warrant.
The bravery shown by the New Mexico police — who were moved to save the children – can only be imaged.
The compound is on 10 acres of land in the middle of nowhere, making impossible any element of surprise. The police involved in the raid knew there was an enormous chance of a deadly shootout which could have incurred multiple casualties on the part of the police officers.
Sources aware of the investigation described the property as essentially a “training camp” with a shooting range. Neighbors had reported hearing gunfire consistently over the months. The camp looked like it was a compilation of trash, but close observation showed that it was not the handiwork of amateurs.
Tires formed a defensive perimeter. A trailer was half-buried and covered in plastic to stop outsiders from seeing what was going on inside. Various measures had been taken to detect “visitors” and impede an expected raid — wood with nails sticking out it and shattered glass were scattered on the property to alert residents of any intruders…
…The two men, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Lucas Morten, initially did not comply with police orders.
Somehow, they were compelled—or forced—to surrender.
POTUS Trump is right: The FBI is broken. Unfortunately, we don’t think AG Jeff Sessions is up to the task of fixing it, either. Let’s hope Director Christopher Wray is.
