Mueller is full of it. The idea that the FBI would have identified one of the 9/11 terrorists in San Diego and foiled the attack is a flat out lie. The terrorists who hijacked and flew those airplanes into the WTC and the Pentagon, trained, lived, and partied openly, without any interference or scrutiny in South Florida for months, several of them with expired visa's. Their activities were known by the local police departments, who had several run-in's with them over drinking and brawling and beating women, and there was absolutely no record check done on any of them by the flight schools and simulator testing and training they took in Opa Locka, Florida, West Palm Beach, Florida and Titesville, Florida.

The fact that everyone in the American intelligence community knew of Al Quida, Osama Bin Laden, and the threat they posed to America, was first furnished to the FBI, CIA and Congress by Colonel Oliver North during the Iran Contra hearings during the Reagan Administration. The fact that the terrorists downed an American jetliner over Lockerbie, Scotland; blew a hole in the side of an American naval vessel using a rubber raft; bombed two American embassies in East Africa, and previously had bombed the World Trade Center Building in New York City, perhaps should have sent a subtle message to the FBI that we might have terrorists issues?......No? On most occasions, the FBI is more concerned with image than results, and any surveillance of American's mail, e-mails etc, wouldn't have stopped the 9/11 tragedy. However, a few alert agents out of the Miami or Jacksonville, Florida FBI field offices, following up on expired Saudi visas, with a group of publicly angry, anti-American terrorists operating and training openly on our own soil might have aroused their curiosity. Next time we will bring in the actor's from Criminal Minds to handle the case, the real FBI guys don't know jack. Didn't then, don't now, and as usual, the Director is more concerned with protecting the Bureau's image than preventing crime.
BTW, same mindset existed throughout the entire reign of J.Edgar Hoover as FBI Director, and a bit of curiosity by an agent in Dallas, following up on a disgruntled expatriated American, who returned from living in the Soviet Union, and was on file as a person of interest to be contacted, probably would have saved the life of President John F. Kennedy. Mueller is an idiot, and the Bureau hasn't changed one bit since 1929.....Stan
