Where is the Federal Bureau of Investigation?

I realize that some may feel that I'm being unfair here. Still, I have to ask the question. The FBI was built by J. Edgar Hoover (sort of) under the Department of Justice, and Hoover didn't answer to anyone except his conscience for much of the time that he was director. When he departed, the Bureau changed and it's changed so much in recent years that I wonder if he'd recognize it? I'm not lionizing Hoover -- far from it. But, through much of their history they've tried to do the right thing. 

Director Mueller had his pants pulled down around his ankles in front of Congress last week. They asked about the investigation that FBI was doing in the IRS Scandal. It's a criminal investigation and it's the FBI's job. This isn't a two bit DVD piracy investigation. It's big news and Congress is engaged with it. But Director Mueller could share no details because he didn't know what the FBI was doing. Which brings me to the point: What is the FBI doing? Likely, nothing. Or if they are doing something, it's way to secret to share with Congress?
(Greta Van Sunstren - Fox) In an unscientific poll conducted by Fox News, 90% of respondents felt that Director Mueller was stonewalling in his testimony.
(Fox Video) Was Director Mueller out of the loop? To be fair, he's leaving and may not care. After all, his watch has ended and it's up to his replacement to pick up the ball. That's just human nature. He's had a 12 year tenure and is looking forward to getting out.
Based on statements by the IRS victims, they have not yet been interviewed by the FBI. I find that shocking because the very first thing that must happen is that the victims must be interviewed (Investigation 101). And they've had 6 weeks to do that...
Following the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, an FBI team showed up two weeks later to look for clues in their criminal investigation. When they left, CNN went in and found a boat load of evidence including journal/diary information. Embarrassing, yes. Why did it take the FBI two weeks to get to Libya? If you did that with every crime scene, you'd never solve a single crime. More importantly, why didn't seasoned criminal investigators do a thorough job? Even if you picked up every scrap of paper (indexed to where you found it) and examined it later, you'd be doing SOMETHING. We all know the answer, it was for show only. They're not even making the effort to do the IRS case for show apparently.

Is the FBI conducting a criminal investigation at EPA where the Obama Administration deliberately targeted conservatives while leaving the Democratic Party contributors alone? No.

Who hacked Sharyl Attkisson's (CBS) computer for information regarding Benghazi? I don't have the answer but I suspect that I know, having been exposed to the black arts in my life. CBS confirmed that it was hacked and it's a federal crime. Is the FBI involved? The answer to that question is that I don't know. I would hope that they are and that they are taking this sort of thing seriously. Where do the bread crumbs lead and if they lead to the White House or to their own Department of Justice, or to the National Security Agency, will that criminal investigation be dropped? Likely.

And if this is true, and justice isn't even close to blind, the FBI needs to drop the term, INTEGRITY, from all logos.

Every FBI Special Agent takes an oath to support the Constitution of the United States and to defend it against ALL enemies both foreign and domestic. That includes the Rule of Law and the ENTIRE Bill of Rights. The last I heard, they didn't take an oath to cover for President Obama and his friends.

Is Syria a "Wag the Dog" Scenario?

"Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind." - Orwell
Pick your scandal these days. Everyone has a favorite. People die and Obama lies (Benghazi, Fast and Furious, etc.). So the time is ripe for America to send troops to fight a war and get the national attention away from the IRS Scandal, the EPA Scandal and the National Security Agency getting its pants pulled down around its ankles by a whistleblower.

For those of you who have not seen "Wag the Dog" (not nearly as fictional as you think), I offer a clip:

Wag the Dog was more of a documentary than it was a feature film.

The world learned about the Syrian government gassing its rebellious citizens at least two months ago. Today, with more scandals (at least one a week) blasting out, we find that the Obama Administration just decided that The Syrian Government has used Chemical Weapons! 

"Never let a good crisis go to waste." - Rahm Emanuel

And here I sit, waiting for President Obama to 'take the high ground' and send American troops into harm's way to distract the mainstream media viewing public from his Administration's failures and to try and evoke a wave of patriotic fervor, bathed in gallons of our sons and daughter's blood.

Will America go to war in Syria? If history is any judge, the question would be better put, why not? A close reading of George Orwell's book, 1984 will show you that the nation had to be continually at war.
"Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac." - Orwell
A Chicago Community Organizer who learned the ropes from the best; Emmanuel, Axelrod, Jarret, Ayres, Dorn, Daley, Wright, Farrakhan, Flaeger, Frank Marshal Davis, and Alinsky -- would start a war just to save his reputation and his legacy?
