Free the FBI: Let Them Protect America from Jihad

Stop the Shackling of the FBI's Intelligence on Counterterrorism

Something was seriously wrong when, in 2011, the FBI interviewed a jihadist like Tamerlan Tsarnaev – the older of the two Chechens believed to have perpetrated the bombing of the Boston Marathon – and saw no threat.

Yet, that is the predictable result of the shackling of the Bureau that has taken place in recent years.  For example, that same year in 2011, the Obama administration actually purged FBI training materials of information that warns of the connection between the Tsarnaevs’ kind of “religious fervor” and terrifying acts of jihad.

And the Obama administration has also effectively told the Bureau it must get the approval of "experts" with Muslim Brotherhood affiliations before it can do any such training in the future.  This is a formula for much more jihad in America.

Please add your signature to this letter to President Obama: It’s time to free the FBI so they can do their job and protect our country.

You MUST recognize the enemy before you can win the war. Mr. President, you don't seem to recognize that our enemy has infiltrated our country, even becoming American citizens. Our enemies are patient, and increasing in number. You must see this, or you are putting America at greater and greater risk. It honestly makes me question whose side you're on.

The FBI should not be restricted from doing what is necessary to protect Americans from jihadists. The president should not be allowed to interfere with this.

To block our intelligence services from accurate information about the nature of the ideology of Islam on grounds that it is a religion is a violation of the First Amendment. Restricting access to the facts our intelligence agencies need to do their job of protecting us from violence such as struck Boston two weeks ago is dereliction of duty to your oath of office. Please live up to your job description, sir.

A recent poll shows that 92% of the population do NOT think the government is doing all it can do to keep us safe. The term "jihad" has only one translation as described in the Koran and that is "holy war." The radical Islamists take that term in its literal meaning and attempt to invoke maximum harm on ANYONE who is not of their faith, including Muslims who advocate diversity. It is time to replace those terms in the FBI manuals and activate the "rules of engagement" that J.Edgar Hoover ran with for rooting out the criminals of the 1930s and 40s.

Mr. President. You took an oath to protect the USA as your #1 goal. The blood of the marathon bombings could have been prevented. It is beyond me how the very reason 9/11 happened, happened again. After all the billions spent, new agencies put in place, p&p changes, and all of america standing in endless lines at the airport, this could still happen. That being said, the founders never guaranteed our safety, they guaranteed our liberty and freedom to ensure our OWN safety. So I don't put this all on you. It is the same mentality that banning high capacity magazines for all of law abiding Americas will some how stop one future sociopaths. I am writing today because I have long know that your administration is allowing training camps of Jihadist Muslims to operate within our borders. Not only that, but according to this site, you have allowed the FBI to be limited in the type of surveillance material they can retain in their records. I have one question. How is your decision to allow both of these things to continue making America safer Mr. President?

The FBI's job is to serve and protect this nation on a large scale. How can they protect our nation if their lexicon is black flagged, as well as. their ability to acknowledge that radical Islam does exist on small and large scales? You are not an expert in anything if you that topic is controlled and banned. We all see the big, purple elephant in the room. But the administration is making it mandatory to ignore it. We are a nation where freedom, honesty and integrity is our pride and joy. Call the purple elephant what it is.

Eliminating training materials regarding "intertwining" of religious radicals and terrorism imposes limits on investigators. Enough "political correctness" and give the FBI the tools necessary to protect all of us in the Great American Melting Pot.
