Finally, FBI Director James Comey Calls Chattanooga Shooting a ‘Terror Attack’

IT’S ABOUT TIME …

It appears the feds are finally calling the shootings that took place in Chattanooga, Tenn. that killed four U.S. Marines and one sailor, an act of terror. Better late than never I guess.  The shooter, identified as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, was also was killed during the terror attack. One has to wonder why there was ever a delay at all in calling this was it obviously was from the outset. FBI Director James Comey called the Chattanooga shooting a ‘terror attack’ during a press conference with NYPD commissioner Bill Bratton and stated, “the Chattanooga killer was inspired by a foreign terror organization.”

They may have been investigating the attacks from the beginning as an act of terror, but that is not what the Obama administration had been referring to it as.

The semantic dance of whether or not to call the July mass shooting in Chattanooga a “terrorist” attack appears to be winding down.

FBI Director James Comey twice called the deadly Chattanooga shooting that killed four Marines and one sailor a “terror attack” during a press conference with NYPD commissioner Bill Bratton on Wednesday. Bratton and Comey spoke after addressing the NYPD Shield Conference in New York City.

“We’ve investigated Chattanooga as a terror attack from the beginning,” Comey said. “The Chattanooga killer was inspired by a foreign terror organization. It’s hard to entangle which particular source…there are lots of competing poisons out there.”

That response came as Comey was asked to clarify an earlier statement in which he linked the root cause of the July 16 rampage by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Kuwait, to the recent Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernardino.

FBI Declares Mass Killings in San Bernardino, CA an ‘Act of Terrorism’ (VIDEO)

FBI FINALLY STATES THE OBVIOUS … SAN BERNADINO MASS KILLINGS WAS AN ACT OF TERRORISM …

Yesterday, the FBI made it official that the massacre that took place in San Bernardino, California this past week that killed 14 and injured 17 was an “ACT OF TERRORISM”.  For many, the FBI was just stating the obvious, as the actions of 28 year old Syed Farook and his 29 year old Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik had all the telltale signs of terrorism, not workplace violence that Barack Obama would have us believe. Sadly and maybe even more pathetically, even after the FBI called this heinous event an act of terrorism, the Obama administration was still hesitant to call it terrorism as WH spokesman Josh not so Earnest told reporters, “It’s far too early to reach that kind of conclusion. We’re still learning exactly what was motivating these individuals, what steps they took to carry out this terrible crime.” REALLY? This White House should be ashamed that they are more interested that news events meet their deranged liberal agenda than they are of the facts and protecting Americans.

FBI INVESTIGATING AS AN ACT OF TERRORISM

David Bowdich, Assistant Director, FBI – LA Office

The California massacre which killed 14 people has been declared “an act of terrorism” by the FBI, amid reports the female assailant had pledged allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State militant group.

US-born Syed Farook, 28, and his 29-year-old Pakistani wife Tashfeen Malik were killed in a firefight with police hours after the attack on a holiday party at the Inland Regional Centre social services agency in San Bernardino, about 100 kilometres east of Los Angeles.

“We have uncovered evidence that has led us to learn of extensive planning,” David Bowdich, the assistant FBI director in charge of the Los Angeles office, told reporters.

“There’s a number of pieces of evidence that has essentially pushed us off the cliff to say we are now investigating this as an act of terrorism.”

He said investigators were examining a Facebook posting in which Malik is believed to have pledged allegiance to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, made around the time of Wednesday’s attack.

UPDATE I: University of Chicago Would-Be-Shooter Wanted To ‘Rid The World of White Devils’.

According to the police report, the man who threatened to attack the University of Chicago Monday morning planned to target white males and wanted to do his part to “rid the world of white devils.”

The threat apparently came in the form of a comment on the website WorldStarHipHop. In the comment, the commentator threatened to avenge the death of Laquon McDonald, the black man who was shot and killed by a Chicago police officer, sparking protests across the greater Chicago area.

UPDATE II: “I will then die killing any number of white policeman in the process.”

“This is my only warning. At 10 AM Monday morning, I’m going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with an M-4 carbine and two desert eagles, all fully loaded. I will execute approximately 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time McDonald was killed,” he wrote.

“I will then die killing any number of white policeman in the process. This is not a joke. I am [sic] to do my part and rid the world of white devils. I expect you do the same,” he continued.

UPDATE III: Jabari R. Dean, of Chicago, was arrested Monday and charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.

A 21-year-old college student has been arrested for threatening to “execute aproximately (sic) 16 white male students and or staff” at the University of Chicago, and then “any number of white policemen,” to avenge the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald, according to a criminal complaint and affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Jabari R. Dean, of Chicago, was arrested Monday and charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois announced. According to the affidavit, Dean wrote in an online post that he planned to show up at the University of Chicago’s campus quad Monday morning armed with an assault rifle and two semi-automatic pistols and would “do my part to rid the world of the white devils.”

FBI Director Comey Admits the United States CANNOT Vet All Syrian Refugees (VIDEO)

FBI DIRECTION COMPLETELY CONTRADICTS BARACK OBAMA LIES … THE US CANNOT VET SYRIAN REFUGEES!!!

FBI Director James Comey testified earlier this week during a House Committee on a Homeland Security hearing on Wednesday that the federal government DOES NOT have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the 10,000 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration says will be allowed to come to the United States. As an aside, the 10,000 refugees is just the tip of the iceberg of the 100,000 that Obama wants to lets waltz into the United States.

“You can only query what you’ve collected. And with respect with Iraqi databases, we had far more because of our country’s work there for a decade. This is a different situation.”

Who are you going to believe regarding the vetting process and homeland security, the FBI or a known liar like Barack Obama and his cronies in the DOJ?

On 21 October 2015, FBI director James Comey said during a House Committee on a Homeland Security hearing on Wednesday that the federal government does NOT have the ability to conduct thorough background checks on all of the 10,000 Syrian refugees that the Obama administration says will be allowed to come to the United States.

“We can only query against that which we have collected,” Comey said in response to a line of questioning from Mississippi Representative Bennie Thompson.

“And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home, but there will be nothing show up because we have no record on that person.”

FBI Steps Up Interviews in Hillary Clinton Email Investigation

This this just smoke and mirrors or is the FBI really serious?

According to The Politico, the FBI is stpping up their investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Sorry, if there was really equal justice Hillary Clinton would already have withdrawn her presidential run and have been escorted in leg irons to the hoosegow for the federal crimes she has committed.

hillary-clinton-jail

Even as Hillary Clinton tries to put questions about her private email server behind her, the FBI has stepped up inquiries into the security of the former Secretary of State’s home-made email system, and how aides communicated over email, POLITICO has learned.

The FBI’s recent moves suggest that its inquiry could have evolved from the preliminary fact-finding stage that the agency launches when it receives a credible referral, according to former FBI and DOJ officials inteviewed by POLITICO.

“This sounds to me like it’s more than a preliminary inquiry; it sounds like a full-blown investigation,” said Tom Fuentes, former assistant director of the FBI. “When you have this amount of resources going into it …. I think it’s at the investigative level.”

The FBI declined to respond to questions about the scope of its ongoing work.

But POLITICO learned that the FBI around early October requested documents from a company involved in the server arrangement after Clinton left State. It also interviewed a former high-ranking policy official at State about the contents of top Clinton aides’ emails.

Second IT Company Datto Inc. Agrees to Give Clinton’s Server Data to FBI

ANOTHER HILLARY CLINTON IT SERVER COMPANY COMES FORWARD …

DRIP, DRIP, DRIP … And the Hillary Clinton email/private server scandal keeps on coming. Just when you thought there was only one IT company involved in Hillary Clinton’s email server, there now appears to be another. Datto Inc., an IT company based in Norwalk, CT, has become the second firm to get caught up in the Hillary email/server scandal. The Connecticut based company to provide Hillary’s server data to the FBI. Hmm, remember when it was said that Hillary’s server was wiped/scrubbed clean? Not so fast. As Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com opines, maybe Val the bartender can explain to Hillary how her secure emails got in the Cloud.

hillary-clinton_val bartender

 … So you see, data is stored in the Cloud

Hillary Clinton hired a Connecticut company to back up her emails on a “cloud” storage system, and her lawyers have agreed to turn whatever it contains over to the FBI, a personal familiar with the situation said Tuesday.

The disclosure came as a Republican Senate committee chairman, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, also asked the firm to turn over to the committee copies of any Clinton emails still in its possession.

There were conflicting accounts as to whether the development could lead to recovery of any of Clinton’s more than 31,000 personal emails, which she said she deleted from her private server upon turning over her work-related emails to the State Department, at its request, in December 2014.

Datto Inc., based in Norwalk, Conn., became the second data storage firm to become entangled in the inquiry into Clinton’s unusual email arrangement, which has sparked a furor that has dogged her campaign. In August, Clinton and the firm that had managed her server since June 2013, Colorado-based Platte River Networks, agreed to surrender it for examination by the FBI.

On Friday, Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, and Platte River agreed to allow Datto to turn over the data from the backup server to the FBI, said the person familiar with Datto’s storage, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive. But of course Hillary Clinton will tell you that she is the most transparent individual ever. More from McClatchy DC.

Several weeks ago, Platte River employees discovered that her private server was syncing with an offsite Datto server, he said

When Datto acknowledged that was the case, a Platte River employee replied in an email: “This is a problem.”

Johnson said that “Datto apparently possessed a backup of the server’s contents since June 2013.”

Upon that discovery, Platte River “directed Datto to not delete the saved data and worked with Datto to find a way to move the saved information . . . back to Secretary Clinton’s private server.”

The letter also noted that Platte River employees were directed to reduce the amount of email data being stored with each backup. Late this summer, Johnson wrote, a Platte River employee took note of this change and inquired whether the company could search its archives for an email from Clinton Executive Service Corp. directing such a reduction in October or November 2014 and then again around February, advising Platte River to save only emails sent during the most recent 30 days.

Those reductions would have occurred after the State Department requested that Clinton turn over her emails.

Terror Suspect Usaama Rahim, Shot Dead By FBI & Boston Police After Refusing to Drop Military-Style Knife (Update: Brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, Claims Brother Shot in Back)(Update: Second Suspect David Wright [Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq] Arrested)

WILL THE LEFT AND LIBERAL MSM CALL THIS AN UNJUSTIFIED TERRORIST SHOOTING, WHAT’S NEXT, DO TERRORIST LIVES MATTER?

An armed individual, being tracked by Boston police and the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot dead yesterday in Roslindale, MA when he refused to drop his weapon, a military-style knife, and came at police in an aggressive manner.  The man shot was the 26 year old brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, who claims he was shot 3 times in the back. For the record, The Boston Globe reports that Usaama was shot twice, once in the chest and once in the stomach. Also police sources state, Usaama had been radicalized by ISIS propaganda and may have been preparing an attack on law enforcement.

From the Jawa Report, the family of Usaama is crying racism and Islamophobia and claiming Usaama was ‘shot in the back’. Usaama was a grievance hustler’s twofer. Imagine that, a completely different story from a criminal and in this case an individual being tracked by counter-terrorism. Wow, will this give rise to #Terrorist Lives Matter?

An armed man in his 20s being surveilled by the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot and killed by an FBI agent and a Boston police officer in Roslindale this morning, according to Boston Police Commissioner William Evans.

“He was on foot, under surveillance,” Evans said. “The officers have been surveilling him and again they wanted to speak to him … and he turned and our officers gave several commands for him to drop the weapon and unfortunately he came at the officers and they did what they were trained to do and that’s never an easy decision for any officer to make.”

One FBI agent and one BPD officer fired, FBI Special Agent in Charge Vincent B. Lisi said.

Evans said the suspect was wielding a large military-style black knife that he could have “done a lot of damage” with.

“I think our officers tried their best with the FBI to try to convince him to put down the knife but he didn’t leave us a choice,” Evans said. “It’s an active investigation with the joint terrorism task force … It’s very fluid it’s ongoing, but we have one male shot and as you can see it is a very active scene.”

The Boston Globe – Man shot in Roslindale was under 24-hour surveillance.

Usaama Rahim, 26, had made threats against law enforcement, according to two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case. Officials declined to explain what had led to the ongoing antiterrorism task force investigation or detail its scope, although they said it had been going on for a while.

“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said. “He was someone we were watching for quite a time. The level of alarm brought us to question him today. I don’t think anybody expected the reaction we got out of him.”

Rahim allegedly wielded the knife after being approached on Washington Street in Roslindale by task force members. Evans said the officers did not have their guns drawn when they approached.

UPDATE I: Man arrested in Everett in connection with terrorism investigation.

A man was arrested in Everett in relation to a Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation.

In Everett, police blocked off Linden Street, unsettling neighbors, and officers entered a home there late Tuesday afternoon.

Just after midnight, authorities confirmed that they arrested David Wright, who will face federal charges in court on Wednesday. Officials said the investigation was potentially an “ISIS inspired plot to harm law enforcement officials.”

UPDATE II: Boston terror probe widens after police arrest suspect.

A Massachusetts man is in custody in connection with Tuesday’s shooting of a man police say was radicalized by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.

Police led the man, David Wright, out of an Everett home late Tuesday, linking his arrest to the terror investigation of Usaama Rahim.

Just 14 miles away, investigators say, Rahim had pulled out a knife and waved it at officers in Boston. Moments later, police fired, shooting and killing him. He was under 24-hour surveillance at the time he was killed.

“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said.

Evans says the shooting was caught on nearby surveillance cameras, and the video shows police guns weren’t drawn at first.

UPDATE III: Police seek third person in Usaamah Rahim’s Boston terror plot.

Rahim, 26, and Wright, 25, were apparently tight — Rahim called him his nephew on Facebook, where he thanked him for attending his wedding. Both of them used aliases on Facebook. Rahim went by “Abu Sufyaan” and referred to Wright as “Dawud Sharif Abdul-Khaliq.”

And they spoke in coded language, too, the FBI said, but Rahim’s meaning in recorded phone conversations with Wright seemed obvious to agent Joseph Galietta, who listened in.

Rahim would come out swinging with a knife soon to kill police officers — probably Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest, Galietta said in an affidavit.

“I’m just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue. Cause, ah, it’s the easiest target,” Rahim told Wright, according to the affidavit.
