The Transformation of the FBI & What Citizens Can Do

What happened to the FBI and what can citizens do when those charged with protecting them demonstrate ignorance of clear and present dangers to their communities?

Because state and local police agencies often follow the lead of the FBI on terrorism matters, it is important to understand the depth of the failure at the FBI and what citizens can and must do if America is to win the war against the jihadis and their Marxist allies.

How is the FBI so ignorant about the threat of Islam?

  1. Immediately following 9/11, FBI Director Mueller began meeting with leaders of Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations at FBI Headquarters to include the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), the Muslim American Society (MAS), the American Muslim Council (AMC), which was founded by an Al Qaeda financier, and many other hostile groups to “better understand” the “muslim community.”
  2. Today on the FBI’s website we see their main “outreach partners” in the muslim community are:  the Muslim Brotherhood’s All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) in Sterling, Virginia; the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); and Muslim Advocates, which works closely with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and is ideologically aligned with them.
  3. The FBI has no training on the actual threat of Islam, and no training on sharia – the doctrine 100% of the jihadis state is the blueprint for why and how they fight.  In UTT’s experience, all of the federal agents who attend our training programs, including FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) personnel, have never heard the material we present, yet all of them agree it is critical to protecting their local communities.

Why is the FBI leadership so incompetent?

  1. In approximately 2007, the FBI brought in a major consulting firm to evaluate its promotion system.  The gentleman overseeing the assessment told the FBI that if he were to create the worst possible promotion system – it is the one the FBI was using at the time.
  2. Think about this – FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe had to wait to retire because he had too few years in the FBI.  Yet, he was the Deputy Director.  Many agents with 3 years, or even less, time actually investigating cases, become Supervisors at FBI Headquarters.  Once they get on the management track, they stay there.  Many FBI managers have little investigative experience, which has a catastrophic impact on major cases as these people rise up the ranks.
  3. During FBI Director Mueller’s tenure, there was a significant period of time when former police and military personnel were intentionally not hired.  This had a devastating impact on the FBI’s culture.  Mr. Mueller also made the decision to hire people with “skills” – language, technical, etc – instead of hiring bold leaders and thinkers and training them in languages or in technical skills.  This has also gravely affected the FBI’s culture and its ability to perform its primary mission.  An example:  hiring a Pakistani native who speaks Urdu, or a native Mandarin Chinese speaker as Special Agents may get you the skill you need, but often do not get you the kind of Special Agent you want on the street.  It also creates significant counterintelligence issues.

This is not an exhaustive list but meant to give the reader a taste of the institutional issues facing anyone who seeks to right the ship that is the FBI.

What can American citizens to do when their local and state police get take their lead from the FBI on terrorism matters?

  1. Learn and understand the threat.  UTT has many resources at www.UnderstandingtheThreat.com.  Use the free resources on our Research & Resources page, and purchase our DVDs and books on our online store.
  2. Share the work UTT does with others.  Share our YouTube Channel, Facebook, Twitter (@UTT_USA), and sign up for our Newsletter.
  3. Bring UTT’s training to your area.  Work to bring a 4-8 hour presentation to a local civic organization or church, and our 3-day law enforcement program to your community.  Contact us at info@understandingthethreat.com.
  4. Get people in your community who understand the threat to UTT’s Train the Trainer program. This one week program is the only one of its kind in the West, and trains people to present about the Islamic Movement and how to defend it.  See more about our training HERE.
  5. Prepare your community and its leaders by educating them that CAIR is a Hamas organization before you begin educating them and bringing training to your area.  See CAIR is Hamas on UTT’s website.
  6. Go into your local elementary, junior high and high schools and see what is being taught about Islam to public school students.  Compare that with what is being taught to muslim students at Islamic schools in your area in books like What Islam is All About, the most widely used text book in U.S. Islamic schools.  Bring pressure on the schools and the school board to correct the major conflicts in the two and teach truth about Islam to our children.
  7. Ensure that if your Pastor is “outreaching” to the Islamic community, he is also teaching his flock what Islam is and what it is not.
  8. People in your community who work with state legislators should work to ensure the American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) and Andy’s Law become law in your state, and get police and local leaders trained so they can use these laws, especially Andy’s Law, to bring criminal and civil hammers on jihadi organizations in your area, like the Muslim Students Association, Islamic Societies, and Islamic centers.

This is a beginning.  Look for UTT’s upcoming book, What Can I Do, which will give citizens many ways to engage in this battle.  We need all hands on deck to take the fight to the enemy and put freedom back on the offensive where it belongs.

  1. Sounds like the RCMP copied Canada’s Fascist leftist Integrity Challenged RCMP.
    Management needs no investigative experience nor abilities.
    This is like making people into surgeons without any operating experience.

  3. Thank you for this super primer on things the average person can do to educate our leaders.
    Your posts deal with the myriad ways our enemies are at work, ways most of us haven’t even imagined. Which is why we read these posts, because we KNOW, without doubt you ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE THREAT. Nothing is worse, though, than knowing the threat is alive and well, in our midst yet we haven’t a clue how to fight it.

    During World War II most of the citizenry, specially in Britain, had important jobs to do in combating the threat. There was even an huge network of people praying every evening at 8 p.m., I believe, that their country would survive. It worked! Alas, if only they’d keep that ministry going.

  4. Thank you UTT!

  5. OPINION;

    ‘What happened to the FBI” is the same thing that would have happened to the Pensacola, Florida based U.S. Navy aircraft carrier I was serving aboard (CVL-26) as it transited the Mississippi River en-route to the New Orleans coffee docks to participate in the city’s annual Mardi-Gras celebration, had a seditious criminal seized control of the helm and ran it aground.

    I.e., although its ludicrous to believe that the entire rank-and-file of America’s storied FBI contextually decided to repudiate their oath to protect the American people, it would be even more disingenuous to attribute what was, and still is, feigned ignorance on the part of (then) Director Robert Mueller III and President George W. Bush, et al, in connection with their obstruction of justice and misprision of treason (in time of war*) relating to the 2777 open murders perpetrated by the sharia-adherent Islamic killers on 9/11.

    With respect both to national and bureau security and the safety of Special Agents in mind, the Federal Bureau of Investigation should refocus its historic mission to where it once was, clean house at all leadership levels and ensure that not a single sharia-adherent Muslim is a part of that transition.

    *Anyone interested in obtaining a personal Arabic-to-English verbatim translation of Islam’s declaration of said war on the United States, which was seized by Special Agents of the FBI in compliance with a federal search warrant from a subterranean basement in Annandale, Virginia in 2004, may do so (for a nominal handling & postage fee) by contacting http://www.securefreedom.org to request: GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G U.S. v. HLF, et al.

  7. The FBI has long been infiltrated by America haters such as Robert Mueller who removed all Islam related training materials from FBI training courses leaving FBI agents ignorant of Islam.

    The Moslem Brotherhood often dictates what takes place in the FBI, who gets choice assignments, and who gets promoted.

  8. Our elected leaders failed us. Our
    President ‘Ike allowed Islam to build
    a headquarters in Washington: 1950s
    G.W. Bush told America “Islam is a religion of peace.” Obama was the
    apologist & enabler for millions of
    Muslims flooding inside our gates. Muslims are Kill-Bots duty bound to
    make us surrender or die. They are the enemy who is waging open war
    on us; 9/11, multiple attacks, Vegas,
    Parkland. Declare war on Islam!

  9. After you do have a farm or two with seeeds planted, you must crate some chests to keep
    your itemms as part of your house. The 1st branch will
    probably be in which the saail starts along with the 2nd branch where it ends – Step 24: Add the sail,
    try and asseemble it with a curve so it provides impression of
    getting wind behind it. Yes this is a game but after immersing yourself you feel ruly happy that you ave
    made your great home inside Minecraft.

  10. The Unholy Alliance between The LEFT and ISLAM is how any Government Agency is Blind to Islam and their ultimate plan of replacing any nation’s constitution with sharia. An act of overthrowing a government = __________ ? yes an Act of Treason.

    While people cry about “BANS” & “DEPORTATIONS”, they really ought to consider the true penalty for Treason. Which if I recall correctly is Death.

    When The LEFT is “COLLABORATING” with ISLAM to facilitate, collude, collaborate with in this endeavor it falls under the purview of TREASON.

    All Countries , All Nations must revisit their LAWS and actually use them to the fullest extent possible when dealing with this mess.
