An undercover FBI agent who was keeping an eye on Garland, Texas shooters, Elliot Simpson and Nadir Soofi, but he did nothing when they stopped and opened fire. Well, he did do something. He took pictures.
The FBI had them in a sting operation. Knew they planned a shooting. Followed them and did nothing. Are you kidding me? New documents from the case were just released and i8t is damning for the FBI and its boss at the time, James Comey. This is just one more example of the FBI dropping the ball under Comey’s (lack of) leadership.
Fortunately, there was a cop and a security guard there and they killed both terrorists.
This was revealed in an investigation by CBS’s “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday. The Garland shooting left two terrorists, Elliot Simpson and Nadir Soofi, dead. They attempted to attack an event featuring cartoons of the Muslim prophet Mohammed, but were stopped by local police.
The attorney for Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, who was sentenced for helping the two terrorists carry out the attack, revealed information on “60 Minutes” from the government which showed the FBI’s close proximity to the attack.
“After the trial we found out that they had had an undercover agent who had been texting with Simpson, less than three weeks before the attack, [writing] to him ‘Tear up Texas,’” attorney Dan Maynard said.
Simpson responded, “bro, you don’t have to say that…” The terrorist added, “you know what happened in Paris… so that goes without saying. No need to be direct.”
The FBI argued that the “Tear up Texas” message was not incitement.
When will they learn that terrorists mean business and that sitting on your hands and watching them attack is not a good plan? What do you think of this agent?
