President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he will nominate Christopher A. Wray to be the next director of the FBA.
FBA? Is that a typo? Don’t you mean FBI? No-No I don’t – not anymore.
It’s been a long time since we had an actual G-Man as head of the agency. Now, it may as well be called the Federal Bureau of Attorneys.
So what makes this guy, or any lawyer qualified to head the country’s premier crime fighting agency? Absolutely nothing, as I can see.
Looking at the FBI website, one can see the range of capabilities and services. There is of course the famous FBI’s Ten Most Wanted, the also famous FBI lab services. There’s a section pertaining to the FBI Academy and the Critical Incident Response Group (CIRG). These are the tactical operators, hostage rescue guys. There’s the National Criminal Database, the Strategic Information and Operations Center (SIOC) and the cyber-crime division.
I’m still looking, but somehow I just can’t locate what I’m looking for. But I can’t and won’t find it because it isn’t there. And what isn’t there? Anything that has anything to do with legal services. That’s what isn’t there.
