    Rather than compare the two, I'd simply give them an A on one and an F on the other. But knowing how the 'intelligence' system is today, I wouldn't blame the FBI for the underwear bomb plot getting as far as it did, since that was not totally in their control as was the shooting at Ft. Hood.

    This attempt at phone tapping is all FBI. They didn't have to wait, nor were they dependent, on the CIA or any other intelligence agency.

    A shooting incident at Ft Hood is the responsibility of the Military Police, not the FBI.

    Now, if you want to talk about intelligence gathering, rather than "response", we would have a conversation.

    But your poll, as it stands, makes no sense whatsoever.

    I wonder if O'Keefe's name had four more syllables and a bunch of unpronouncible vowels, it would have taken longer. Things that make you go "hmmmmm".

    I don't believe that's exactly correct, but let's say it is:

    It's very much like a natural disaster (like a hurricane in New Orleans, for example) for which prior warnings were given far in advance is the responsibility of the locality's State and the locality itself, not of the U.S. Federal Government.

    It makes sense unless we adopt your contention as fact. That seems like a silly thing to do. Why would not the FBI have jurisdiction over a possible terrorist act committed within the borders of the United States? You can't seriously be contending that the FEDERAL Bureau of investigation has no jurisdiction merely because the military also has jurisdiction?

    An FBI official seems to disagree with you, in fact.
