FBI officers went to Adam Lanza's home in 2004 to ask him about how he hacked through two layers ...

of government security but his mom told them 'he's a computer whiz who's just testing himself'

New reports have revealed that the FBI had suspicions about Adam Lanza eight years before he committed the second-deadliest mass shooting in American history.

The FBI reportedly went to the Newtown, Connecticut home that he shared with his mother Nancy in 2004 and asked about his computer activity but left before even sitting down with the then-12-year-old.

Newsweek reports that FBI agents went to the family's Yogananda Street home because they had tracked Adam online after he hacked through two layers of government security.

Nancy Lanza, who would later be killed at the hands of her son, spoke to the officers and convinced them that there was no need for further questioning.

'He's a computer whiz,' she told the agents, according to Newsweek.

'Adam was just testing himself.'

The newly released report about the home visit is just one in a growing number of missed clues ....

Why do I think this disclosure came about via Snowden??

And then....since our government friggin' lies all the time, do I believe it?? The only witness is Mom and she's dead.

This is the 10,000th example of how worthless our so-called “security’ agencies really are. “Put not you faith in princes...”

There's a possibility she may re-appear at the next crisis.

Missed clues? Hardly.

More like massive L/E brainwashing by liberal scum——aided and abetted by dumbos like Obama/Holder.

Our L/E is a shambles b/c of politically correct, airheaded liberals. These “tolerant and compassionate morons” who abhor “right and wrong.” Liberal also have a visceral hatred of being “judgmental.

All of that’s too Christian-like for the liberal morons.

Why is it that when we have mass shootings or bombings that we later find the perp had prior contact with Federal agents?

We constantly hear backstories from these protectors about how they foiled this plot or that plot, some even before they left the Middle East. We are not given proof, only their word and their plaints about how diligent they are.

Yet, when push comes to shove, we see the results of their noble efforts. Logan Airport, Sept 11, 2001. Underwear Bomber. Shoe Bomber, Boston Marathon, Ft. Hood, and so many other incidents they deign not to assign the ‘terrorist’ label to.

They are disgusting; nothing they say can be trusted.

Hacked by a 12-year old who in fact was not a "computer whiz." Five years later comes the screen door on a submarine that is the Obamacare website. Malice or incompetence? I'm thinking malice, with every passing day.

It used to be that we drugged the mentally ill and locked them in rubber rooms.

Nowadays, we just drug them and let them roam around free.

Yep. I think I need to find some non-irritating superglue to keep my tin foil hat from slipping off. My first thought was that Adam Lanza was an experiment that got away from them.

An emotionally traumatized/damaged by divorce adolescent boy living with mom, pumped full of powerful drugs to alter brain chemistry, essentially to see what happens and hopefully it will be helpful (ignore those small print side effects), spending hour upon contiguous hour alone immersed inside violent role playing video games.

What could go wrong?

Too much of his background story is now fairly common with those we bring into the world, but he and a few other news makers and news makers to be have a special part of the bell curve all to themselves.

They were turned away so easily because Lanza was only 12 and they couldn’t hire him. Snowden was hired in 2006 at age 22.

I am willing to bet that they kept up with Lanza though. If so, that would open up more questions about this whole sordid mess.

Agree 100%, but first we need to purge the psychiatric field of liberal lunatics who recognize NOTHING as abnormal.Take the PROFIT out of medicating and ‘understanding’ dangerous psychotics.
Once we have doctors who will reliably declare the dangerous mental cases as ‘dangerous’, then the asylums will be filled with people like Lanza at young ages. Of course that also means protective parents like his will have to be legally overruled in such cases. So we need doctors who will declare such people unfit for society, laws that will protect society from them, and institutions to hold/treat them. Until and unless this happens our streets and public buildings ARE the asylums and the insane people are free.

In all fairness, it's probably more than ten times as secure as the ObamaCAIR web site.

Why is it that when we have mass shootings or bombings that we later find the perp had prior contact with Federal agents?

I am currently visiting in Central California where we had 5 people shot by a 21 year old just down the street from the hotel where I am staying This is in a nice part of town. The perp, now dead, carjacked several cars, shooting the drivers. One is dead and one is critical. He was finally stopped by an off duty prison official who shot him in the back. There was also an off duty male nurse who was armed who would have shot the perp, had the prison offical not acted. The perp had 2 brothers (19 and 5) in his gun sights at the time he was shot. Despite being wounded, he jumped into the brothers' truck and took off down the street, driving several miles before he crashed and died from his wounds.

The rest of the story? The perp had been arrested as a teen for waving a gun around in public and served about a week in jail before he was given 3 years probation and told to stay away from alcohol and firearms.

That always works out so well...

We have a winner! I’m not believing a word of it either. What a sorry state we’ve become that we can’t believe our own “freedom and liberty” government anymore. They’ve had a year to make up a background on this guy. It took them four years to cut and paste a BC, so they’re getting better.

Which gov. agency did Lanza crack, I wonder?
>
>

In it, he [the author] discusses a previously undiscovered writing of Lanza’s where he rails against ‘the system’ and talks about how he felt students were being brainwashed.

‘It goes without saying that an AK-47 and enough ammunition could do more good than a thousand ‘teachers,‘ if one is truly interested in reforming the system,’ Adam wrote a year before the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

‘In short time the children will be brainwashed, pumped full of Xanax and told to conform, until they have been turned into the oppressors.

‘They (the children) are already dead.’

Seems like Adam must have known something about the effects of Xanax.

I think they set up sting operations, choose losers, give them the info and perhaps even the gear they need to pull the operation off, and then bust the ones who look like they might actually do something (especially if budgets are being discussed).

Then, there are the ones who move up their timelines, go 'dark' or 'dumb' and pull a surprise, or who are just let loose to create an incident so the agencies can expand their power.

That may seem jaded, but the feebies have lost credibility with me, especially under this administration.

IIRC, there was a case of Randy Weaver years ago during the Clinton Administration. He was approached by an acquaintance about sawing off a shotgun.

Such a simple task, I think Weaver told the guy that he could do it himself, but the guy cajoled HIM into doing it. He was a government plant, and I believe that’s one of the charges they used to help create Ruby Ridge.

I think that it goes to show you that the history and intent of some government agencies is bad, irrespective of the administration. I put BATFE in that class.

‘In short time the children will be brainwashed, pumped full of Xanax and told to conform, until they have been turned into the oppressors....

‘They (the children) are already dead.’

So then he wrote the above words -- WOW.

It sure gives some insight into what his thought processes were.

That was one example, but, iirc` that was the BATF. However, there was a bombing in 1993 on the East Coast where the FBI informant allegedly showed the bombmakers how to make ANFO before they bombed the building with a vanload. Something similar may have happened in OK a couple of years later.

Generally, the guy in the room calling loudest for blowing something up or burning it down was a Feebee or Batfe plant.

Like the Murraugh Building in OK City, only the school wasn’t in danger of falling on anyone. Besides, they couldn’t just burn it like Mt. Carmel. (Waco). In all cases, the crime scene was very promptly destroyed...
