whats the point if the fbi does nothing as usual about it?
this is not the first time they did not act on evidence.

OK...I've got a question. Yes, a question. I don't know the answer, I'm not baiting anyone...just a question. It seems that the gun store didn't have much information for the FBI to follow and that seems to be the reason/excuse for there being little or no follow up.
But...if a gun store reports someone trying to buy armor, mass amounts of ammo and appears to be of middle eastern dissent...why wouldn't the FBI stop by with pictures of area people who are suspect or considered "people of interest" for the gun store owner/employees to look through?
I guess there could be too many such people in the area or maybe there are too many such reports. And while hind-sight is 20/20, why wouldn't they come by with a "most wanted" type list at least?

NIJ LEVEL III: (High-powered rifle). This armor, normally of hard or semirigid construction, protects against 7.62mm full-metal jacketed bullets (US military designation M80) with nominal masses of 9.7 g (150 gr.) impacting at a velocity of 838 m/s (2,750 ft/s) or less. It also provides protection against threats such as 223 Remington (5.56mm FMJ), 30 Carbine FMJ, and 12-gauge rifled slug, as well as Level I through IIIA threats. Level III body armor is clearly intended only for tactical situations when the threat warrants such protection, such as barricade confrontations involving sporting rifles.

I have a concern that Obama is intentionally turning a blind eye to what is working in order to promote his agenda. I would go so far as to say he has asked certain agencies to stand down so that the NWO and TPTB can get their agenda rammed through the US Congress.
He is either intentionally doing this or he is a complete moron and I think it is the former. Hilary may even be worse.
Is anyone else here noticing that the racism card, distracting from the OP, is being brought up specifically by a group of newbies on here? Or is it just me?
I've asked this question several times now and no one has given me a response, or even an attempt at one....
What do you expect the FBI to do? He legally bought a weapon, and up until the point he was heading to the club to shoot it up had broken no laws (and arguably he hadn't broken any until he pulled the trigger). What evidence exactly do you want them to act on? Should they arrest him and charge him with crimes he hasn't yet committed?

a reply to: Boadicea>>> So... we can't trust the government to keep us safe and they don't trust us to keep ourselves safe, so where does that leave everyone? We're paranoid of the government and they're paranoid of us. And we're both paranoid of moslems, except for Obama who is happy in his blissful ignorance.

We are being distracted and in the distraction we are demanding the government take action. That action will be directed back at the American people, like gun control, terror watch list, no fly list with the added push to allow the government to remove a right based on your name being on a list.

Or, an agency OTHER THAN the FBI was working this asset.
