Why Did The FBI Drop Law Enforcement As Its Primary Mission?

Whatever the reason, the agency's increased focus on national security over the last decade has not occurred without consequence. Between 2001 and 2009, the FBI doubled the amount of agents dedicated to counterterrorism, according to a 2010 Inspector's General report. That period coincided with a steady decline in the overall number of criminal cases investigated nationally and a steep decline in the number of white-collar crime investigations. "Violent crime, property crime and white-collar crime: All those things had reductions in the number of people available to investigate them," former FBI agent Brad Garrett told Foreign Policy. "Are there cases they missed? Probably."

The FBI helped Assassinate JFK, in the Coup d-Etat of Nov. 22, 1963, for the "Military-Industrial Complex" (including International Central Bankers, their Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), their CIA, Pentagon, Oil Corporations, Weapons Manufacturers, etc.).  LBJ, and J. Edgar Hoover were neighbors, for 19 years, in Washington, D.C.  They were both at Texas Oil Billionaire, Clint Murchison's Dallas Mansion, on Nov. 21st, 1963, the eve of the Assassination.  The FBI has NEVER been in the business of "Law Enforcement".  It exists, to protect the so-called "elites" from the rest of us - just like the so-called "Federal" "Reserve", the "IRS", and now, every other quasi-, or pseudo- governmental organization, or actual branch of government.
