Skip to comments.Senate leader investigating possible FBI deception about Texas terror attack
Posted on 04/20/2017 11:14:45 AM PDT by Uncle Sam 911
A powerful U.S. senator has launched an investigation into whether the FBI knew about a planned attack by ISIS-inspired terrorists at an anti-Muslim cartoon show in the Dallas area and did nothing to stop it -- and also misled the lawmaker about circumstances of the 2015 attack.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said he learned from a recent national media report that the FBI was tailing the two terrorists, Elton Simpson, 31, and Nadir Soofi, 34, and an agent was just steps away when the pair jumped from their car and began shooting at police guarding the "Draw Mohammad" event at the Curtis Culwell Center in the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas. The terrorists, who pledged allegiance to ISIS, struck Bruce Joiner, an unarmed security guard, in the leg, before snipers killed them. The attack was significant because it was the first that the Islamic State took credit for on U.S. soil. Soofi and Simpson had been in touch with an ISIS recruiter in Somalia.

These government agencies allow and do bad things. They use these things when budget time comes around to get more $$$$.
Amazing that this is now coming out. Heard it about a month ago and was aghast.
It gets worse. The FBI appears to have fomented the attack, partly because of animosity towards Geller.
Something like this should bring down the entire agency. It’s clearly a compromised political terrorism operation, nothing to do with “law enforcement”, unless you think of law enforcement the same way Stalin did.
OkBomb re-run, basically.
Snipers killed them? I thought it was a local Sheriff that got them with a pistol?
The FBI has nearly always been corrupt, since it was founded. Sometimes they did a good job, but only because that was what their Bosses told them to do. And probably there have been a few honest agents, but they have been badly outnumbered.
Of course, with horrific leaders in charge, things got a lot worse.
I thought the two Muslims were shot by a hero policeman with his service revolver? Remember all the good shooting comments?The article says snipers.
I read something along those lines myself.
The feds knew about the Boston Bombers for years and did nothing. They also ignored Russia and England when they warned us about them. Of course, that had nothing to do with their uncle and the wife’s grandpa being in the CIA. One American born and raised family member has written several pro-muzzy books.
All I know is we dont have the straight story from the FBI, Johnson said. We are just so fortunate that local law enforcement was able to take care of the situation to prevent another mass attack. This was a real tragedy averted.
On March 26, 60 Minutes first reported that the FBI had been monitoring Simpson for years, that an FBI agent was tailing the terrorists and took cell phone footage of the shooting from 30 feet away. Police apprehended and handcuffed the FBI undercover agent as he fled the scene
a statement from the City of Garland read:
As todays Muhammad art exhibit event at the Curtis Culwell Center was coming to an end, two males drove up to the front of the building in a car. Both males were armed and began shooting at a Garland ISD security officer. Garland police officers engaged the gunmen, who were both shot and killed.
Five officers responded, killing the two gunmen.
I’m glad the police knew how to handle it. I was just getting ready to go out the door when the shots were fired.
The article says snipers.
= = =
If you hit your target, you are a sniper.
If you miss, you are a policeman.
Interpreted from MSM forked-tongue language.
President Obama will award the Medal of Valor to the Garland, Texas, police officer who stopped the attack on a Draw Muhammad contest last year, according to The Dallas Morning News.
Traffic cop Gregory Stevens was working security for the event when he took down two gunmen outside an anti-Muslim event last May.
The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor is the highest national honor awarded to police officers. It is awarded annually by the president to those who have exhibited exceptional courage, regardless of personal safety, in an attempt to save or protect human life, according to the White House.
Either *fix* the problem- Obama Sabatours- or you ARE the problem- sabatours.
It was the Garland cops. You’re correct.
It was the police that shot them not snipers.
Where is Trump on this?
