Good answers by Clancy. I agree with everything he said except about the FBI being entirely reactice. They have intel gathering capabilities and they missed this one completely. I'm not saying that we need to hand them out to dry but they missed this one completely and they know it. Repair the flaws and move out. O'Reilly had his hands full on this one.

Ooops. Should be reactive. Clumsy fingers anyway!

The FBI are cops. They are required by law to react to a crime. You can't arrest people for visiting the country. They have to do something illegal. These guys did their illegal thing and died in the process; it's a little late. Now the FBI is working on solving the crime. That's their job. They're getting evidence and netting other people who are here. I think I'm seeing evidence of them collecting copycats too (couple arrested today after downloading lots and lots and lots of photos of gov't buildings & bridges and other targets.) Great! More power to them! Let them do it right this time--no lost documents, no inadmissable evidence, warrants all in order when they're needed, don't let a single fly out of the web! It's amazing to see a force not long ago so very demoralized pulling it together and finding their mission again. Pray for them. Bake them cookies. (Well, I don't know about the cookies. Order them pizzas?)
