"To date, the FBI has not identified a national security threat tied to the participation of terrorism-linked witnesses," the Justice Department said.

Please procced (to show me why Obama should get worked up over some low level federal employee's f*ck up), governor.

The program sounds like a success in that case.

Former Participants. Why should the FBI be tasked with tracking Former Participants?
 
2013-05-16 03:33:36 PM  
I hate when that happens.

So, the implication is what?  That they two missing went back to terrorism, which would be bad, or that the two were rubbed out by the people the betrayed to get into the program, which, wouldn't actually cause too many tears, I think.

Also, aren't people in WitSec allowed to go walking whenever they want, with the understanding that they won't be protected by the U.S. anymore?  What's the big deal?
 
2013-05-16 03:33:46 PM  
Since its CNN, I assume the witnesses aren't actually terrorists and aren't actually missing.

Expect CNN to edit the story to be about kittens stuck in a tree by this evening.

Let's see some butthurt over this. Go ahead.

Bin Laden? Still dead. The people who pulled off the worst domestic attack since then (with a thousandth of the casualties)? farking dead, too. And we didn't invade two countries for it.

On the list of possible intelligence screw-ups, this barely moves the needle.

Well, technically Bin Laden is missing.  We never did get the body.  I bet he was supposed to be watched by the FBI too.

Update:


A Justice Department official who spoke to reporters about the matter said on Thursday that the agency knows the whereabouts of witness program participants.


"As for the two people you're talking about, we know they left the country years ago, they left the program years ago, they have been accounted for. There has been no information provided that they have ever returned to the United States," according to the official who spoke

Wait, when did the other one die?  Last I heard he was in jail.  I wasn't aware Obama personally had a hand in that.  Funny how he's totally not responsible for low level IRS lackeys run amok (which I believe until proven otherwise) but when it comes to Tsarnaev it's like he was personally lifting up the boat tarp screaming "HERE HE IS! GET HIM!" and not the work of local and federal law enforcement agents.  And I'll just overlook the whole imposition of martial law during the whole time for the sake of this discussion.

The U.S. Marshals Service lost

Alright, listen up, people. Our fugitives have been on the run for ninety minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area.

Who the hell has said that Obama was responsible for catching the Tsarnaevs?  All the credit I've seen tossed about has been to civilian informants and the local/state folks primarily, with some nods to federal coordination.

I can't wait for the midterms. I've always wanted two years of a beleaguered, lame duck executive and divided legislature. It will be so different from the previous decade.

That's a good point I hadn't thought of until you mentioned it.

However, I still find the idea of government agencies snooping this way to be very creepy and if it isn't illegal, it should be illegal.

Of course, if the FBI weren't using every legal means at its disposal to investigate this security leak (which, I remind you, resulted in the compromising of CIA assets and very possibly the loss of life), I'm sure it would never occur to you to criticize their restraint - much less shift the blame to the president himself.
