Hey, Comey, Osama bin Laden is dead! Get rid of the Patriot Act and send the FBI back to work in the field.

In April 2003, the FBI Laboratory moved into its first standalone facility. The building, located on the campus of the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia, tripled the Lab’s workspace and included new state-of-the-art technologies and equipment.

What do you need next, Comey? Another half trillion $ US? Will that give you the dreamscape of computer capacity to detect terrorists in the next moon base?

FBI Director James Comey, (click here) speaking at Boston College Wednesday morning, said widespread digital encryption of devices and apps has made the FBI’s work more difficult.

“In October, November, and December, the FBI received to our examiners 2,800 devices for which we had lawful authority to open,” he said. “Twelve-hundred of those devices, so about 43 percent, we could not open with any technique.”

Speaking at BC’s cybersecurity conference, Comey said encryption used to be utilized by “the sophisticated actor.” Now, he said, it is used by drug dealers and other lower-end criminals.

Comey said he was not calling for weaker encryption, and that “strong encryption is a great thing” for cyber security efforts. But should Americans have an expectation of total privacy through encryption? That still needs to be answered, he said....

That still needs to be answered? Here is the answer, get out from behind the desk and work for a living.

The FBI has some of the worst attacks on citizens on record and how does Comey get a pass to dead Americans? He had no clue about the 2014 Isla Vista killing, 2015 San Bernardino killing and the 2016 Orlando killings. This wasn't even a near miss as with Zacarias Moussaoui, these deaths resulted because of complete FBI failure.
