This is the same FBI that says Hillary is innocent, right?
Ahmad Khan Rahami is accused of setting multiple bombs in NY and NJ before being arrested in a shootout with police. Now his father has emerged with a statement that will rock the law enforcement world.
The New York Times reports:
Two years before the bombings that Ahmad Khan Rahami is suspected of carrying out in New York and New Jersey, his father told the police that his son was a terrorist, prompting a review by federal agents, according to two law enforcement officials.
The father, Mohammad Rahami, in a brief interview on Tuesday, said that at the time he told agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his concern, his son had just had a fight with another of his sons and stabbed the man, leading to a criminal investigation.
“Two years ago I go to the F.B.I. because my son was doing really bad, O.K.?” he said. “But they check almost two months, they say, ‘He’s O.K., he’s clean, he’s not a terrorist.’ I say O.K.”
He added: “Now they say he is a terrorist. I say O.K.”
It is not clear if officers ever interviewed Ahmad Rahami, but as investigators turn their focus to what might have motivated, inspired or led him to plant bombs in Chelsea in Manhattan and on the Jersey Shore, new clues are emerging indicating that he may have been increasingly receptive to extremist ideology.
The man’s own father thought he was a terrorist, and the FBI talked him out of it.
Fortunately, Rahami is in custody. Think of how much worse things could have been. Conversely, think of the tragedy that could have been avoided if the FBI had gotten to him two years ago.
Yesterday, ThreePercenterNation reported on the arrest of Ahmad Khan Rahami.
So who, exactly, is Rahami?
