So the Kriminalpolizei (Kripo) "criminal police" are now the Sicherheitspolizei (Sipo) "security police"? How appropriate.

I thought national security was the job of National Security.

The F, the B, and the I have been the agency in charge of political blackmail all along; everything else is window dressing for the gullible.

It’s difficult to be a law enforcement agency when most of the government is composed of criminals.

At least they're being "more truthful". How can they say the primary mission is law enforcement when dipstick in the White Hut only selectively enforces it?
"Security" seems like a much broader brush with a vague definition.
Very befitting of the current regime. d:^)

Shall I presume this FBI National Security is related to an outreach to Muslims?

The advantage of a “national security” as a mission is that it is amorphous and can be used to criminalize just about any behavior they choose.

Well then, one of the largest threats to NS is Bammy. He (and E. H0lder) needs to be arrested immediately before he does more damage.

Read the transcripts of the LBJ tapes when he was Prez. Hoover was his personal snoop for getting the goods on his political opponents.

Of course they have. Their new job is to protect the Federal Government from the Citizens that it abuses.

Neither statement is correct. The primary mission of the FBI is identical to that of the Justice Department. Security of the Party. Which party is not too hard to figure out.

Emergence of the American Cheka. With a subtle shift in mission statement, two little words, they can now circumvent ALL constitutional strictures on law enforcement.

Show me the man and I’ll find you his crime. - Lavrentiy Pavlovich Beria, People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs (NKVD), (the ministry which oversaw the state security and police forces.)

Makes me feel better to know we have our own ‘state security’ now! Another long time Progressive dream realized!

The purpose of the FBI is to assist state and local law enforcement and investigate crimes that take place across state lines.

Of course, since 9/11, they have expanded into terrorism, spying and intelligence collecting to a large degree.

I’m still waiting for the FBI to release the info from those Solyndra computers that they had to grab before we could see where all the money came from

Just wait until the mission creep changes to “political orthodoxy.” /S

Ha, to think congress was worried it was just the NSA spying on them.

My bet is that there is a much more base reason for this — if an agency has “national security” in its mission, it probably has a better chance of getting more taxpayer $$$$$ out of Congress or under some budgetary rules, or perhaps even gets an ability to shield part of its budget from scrutiny.

If the “primary mission” is National Security, then why do we need TWO National Security Agencies, FBI and NSA?
Let’s get rid of the redundant one.

Unfortunately “national security” does not include stopping Chechen bombers.

Instead, in means keeping an eye on those evvviiill conservatives.
