Officer shot in Texas ISIS attack sues FBI
WND ^ | 10/04/2017 | Art Moore

Contends bureau allowed assault on 'Draw Muhammad' event!

Claiming an FBI undercover agent bears responsibility for the ISIS-inspired terrorist attack at the “Draw Muhammad” free-speech event in Garland, Texas, in 2015, the security guard wounded in the incident is suing the bureau for damages.

Bruce Joiner charges the FBI is liable because one of its agents “solicited, encouraged, directed and aided members of ISIS in planning and carrying out the May 3 attack,” according to court documents filed Monday, reported the Washington Examiner.

As WND reported from the scene, two Muslims wearing body armor and armed with assault rifles who had traveled 1,000 miles to the Dallas suburb tried to penetrate the massive security set up by event organizers, estimated to have cost them up to $30,000. ISIS later claimed as their own the two men, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi of Phoenix, who were shot and killed by police after they jumped out of their vehicle at a parking-lot barrier and began firing.

One of the jihadists shot Joiner in the ankle.

The assailants, clearly planning a massive slaughter, were found to have had three rifles, three handguns, about 1,500 rounds of ammunition and a photocopied ISIS flag.

Joiner, claiming the FBI essentially allowed the attack to happen, seeks more than $8 million in damages.

“The FBI helped the terrorists obtain a weapon that was used in the attack by lifting a hold during a background check, incited the terrorist to attack the Garland event, and even sent an agent to accompany the terrorists as they carried out the attack,” the complaint states.

An FBI informant was revealed to have been at the scene of the attack through testimony in a separate court case and a “60 Minutes” report in March.

The FBI agent was in a car directly behind Simpson and Soofi when they began firing. According to the court case, the agent had texted Simpson just weeks before with the message, “Tear up Texas.”

Hoo boy.

I wonder if this one makes it to the discovery phase.

My guess is no. Big monetary payout to the officer, whole thing goes away.

Which is probably the whole idea.

former FBI Director Jim Comey lied in a “post-attack cover-up” about the bureau’s knowledge of how the attack unfolded and what Comey and the bureau knew about what was likely to transpire.

“Even after it had come to light that an undercover FBI agent had been communicating extensively with the terrorists during the week prior to the event and had accompanied them as they carried out the attack, the FBI continued to assert that “[t]here was no advance knowledge of a plot to attack the cartoon drawing contest.”

Boston Marathon victim families should also sue the FBI...because they interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev, released him, and then Robert Mueller refused to track him after the intel agencies of Russia and Israel warned of his terror risk. Mueller also ordered the FBI to cease all surveillance of Tsarnaev’s radical Boston mosque.

I think it’s time to create a brand new intelligence agency, with the power to oversee the FBI.

Just whose side is FBI on?

Oh yea, now I remember...

1. ..the FBI launched an assault and initiated a tear gas attack in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out of the ranch.

2. ..the FBI Hostage Negotiator at Ruby Ridge, was "surprised and shocked" at the ROE, the most severe rules he had ever heard in ...

“....Maybe they helped in Las Vegas...”
When it comes to the FBI and ISIS, NOTHING would be surprising.
