The FBI apparently knew the Garland, Texas contest could be targeted by the terrorists hours before the attack. They put out a bulletin to Texas police with Simpson’s photo and name prior to the attack, warning that he might travel to the event. James Comey, the FBI director said there was really no evidence the police knew about the attack!!!
No one bothered to tell the organizers of the event either.
The question is why didn’t they make certain the police knew? And the organizers?
Update: 19:00: The FBI said they did have boots on the ground in Garland and there wasn’t a specific threat to Garland.
Update: 22:24: The FBI has not yet contacted Pamela Geller despite this was a terror attack.
It’s still unclear as to why there was no evidence the police knew, even more so now that the FBI is saying there were boots on the ground. An unarmed guard and one officer held off these gunmen and kept them from slaughtering people. The FBI boots were nowhere to be seen.
The New York Times quoted James Comey as saying they knew about Simpson for a decade and his violent tweets but they have so many like him, they lose track.
An unidentified “senior law enforcement official” tells the New York Times that, while the FBI had been aware of Garland, Texas jihadist attacker Elton Simpson for nearly a decade, they did not follow his violent, pro-jihad tweets as closely as they could have because “there are so many like him” that the agency is overwhelmed.
Pamela Geller, the organizer of the event, now has a Fatwa out against her and the FBI hadn’t contacted her as of last evening.
In a debate with Muslim UK maniac Anjem Choudry, Choudry said she should be tried and executed for insulting the prophet Muhammad, the prophet who was known for slaughtering Jews and any infidel centuries ago.
