“The FBI Came Close to Staging a Coup

“Andrew McCabe, a senior bureau official, provided the alarming evidence in a “60 Minutes” interview”

 

Yes, I think the headline is accurate.

However, for those who know some of the key history of the FBI, it comes as no revelation and no surprise.

J. Edgar Hoover literally intimidated his way through Washington for years.

He had his special personal and confidential files bulging with blackmail-quality stuff on Congressmen, Senators, and even Presidents.

And he used it, regularly, in quiet little meetings full of innuendo and implicit threats.

And how about the FBI’s colossal failures on the Kennedy Assassination and 9/11? Oh, and there’s the TWA Flight 800 downing, clearly by a US Navy Missile released in error, endlessly lied about.

In the case of Kennedy and 9/11, the events are coups of a sort. I don’t think the FBI was responsible for them, but it sure as hell did not investigate them and bring the bad guys to justice, and it sure did not prevent them.

I’d call that total, crisis-level failure, if not actual playing footsie with coups and internal terror.

The FBI has always been a crappy excuse for a national police force, and I don’t understand anyone’s talking about the organization’s reputation or integrity.

It never had any, except in the claims of its huge output of self-serving propaganda.

Here’s an essay from some years back that sums it up pretty well:
