Does Former FBI Assistant Director Kallstrom Know Too Much About Terrorism To Be Ignored?
Kallstrom said those daunting words following a suspected terrorist attack in Flint, Michigan on Wednesday when a Canadian man, Amor Ftouhi allegedly stabbed a police officer in the neck with a large knife while yelling “Allahu akbar.”
“We’ve been just sitting back basically and taking this.”
Kallstrom blamed the “politically correct training” that neglects to take into account the motives for these attacks.
“I’m not saying we need a police state, but we need to have a lot more sensibility and good strategy.”
Kallstrom’s career with the FBI spanned 27 years. He led several notable investigations including the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800 and he was supervising agent in the New York investigation of the Cosa Nostra criminal network.
Kallstrom a former U.S. Marine Corps Captain and Vietnam Veteran supported President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
He is also a prominent critic of Hillary Clinton having referred to her and the Clinton family as a “crime family. He’s also called the Clinton Foundation a “cesspool.”
After 9/11, New York’s former Gov. George E. Pataki tapped Kallstrom to protect New York from future terror attacks calling him the ideal person to help police departments across the state tighten security and act as liaison between state police and federal law enforcement.
“Jim Kallstrom is too good a person, to experienced a person, to be on the sidelines when the nation is at war with terrorism.”
Perhaps with all of his experience and expertise on the subject of terrorism, it would be wise for those in charge to heed Kallstrom’s warnings.
Or, will we once again allow political correctness to blind us from the truth?
