| Security guard wounded in jihad attack at Muhammad cartoon event sues FBI, charges coverup
| Wednesday, October 04, 2017
Good for Bruce Joiner. There are many, many unanswered questions
about what happened at Garland, and about what the FBI was doing there.
60 Minutes ran a feature
last March about the FBI’s curious role in the May 2015 Garland jihad
attack at a free speech event co-organized by Pamela Geller and me.
was, predictably enough, viciously biased, sloppy, and incomplete, but
it was nonetheless illuminating in raising a hard and unanswerable
question: did the FBI want Pamela Geller and me dead?
Despite the fact that the jihad attack took place at our event,
neither Geller nor I appear, except in one still photo, in the 60
Minutes piece. All they say is that “a self-described free speech
advocate named Pamela Geller was holding a provocative contest.”
Despite all the predictable politically correct whitewashing and
appeasement, CBS did a good job of highlighting a curious and still
unexplained aspect of the attack: the FBI clearly knew the attack was
coming (although it didn’t bother to inform us or our security team), as
the FBI agent was right there, following behind the jihadis, whom he
had encouraged to “tear up Texas.” But even though they knew the attack
was coming, they didn’t have a team in place to stop the jihadis.
had one man there, and one man only. The jihadis were not stopped by FBI
agents, but by our own security team. If the jihadis had gotten through
our team, they would have killed Pamela Geller and me, and many others.
(They would no doubt have loved to kill Geert Wilders, but he left
before they arrived.)
The Daily Beast wrote in August 2016
about how this undercover FBI agent encouraged the jihadis. The Beast’s
Katie Zavadski wrote: “Days before an ISIS sympathizer attacked a
cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, he received a text from an undercover
FBI agent. ‘Tear up Texas,’ the agent messaged Elton Simpson days
before he opened fire at the Draw Muhammad event, according to an
affidavit (pdf) filed in federal court Thursday.”“Victim of ‘Draw Muhammad’ ISIS-inspired terror attack sues FBI, accuses James Comey of cover-up,” by Todd Shepherd, Washington Examiner, October 2, 2017 :
