Members of extremist groups have signed up as school bus drivers in the United States, counterterror officials said Friday, in a cautionary bulletin to police. An FBI spokesman said "parents and children have nothing to fear."Well which is it? Yes, yes, we understand that "Most attempts by foreign nationals in the United States to acquire school bus licenses to drive them are legitimate." Which has what to do with members of extremist groups signing up to be bus drivers?
Asked about the alert notice, the FBI's Rich Kolko said "there are no threats, no plots and no history leading us to believe there is any reason for concern." . . .
It noted "recent suspicious activity" by foreigners who either drive school buses or are licensed to drive them, according to a counterterror official who read parts of the document to The Associated Press.
Foreigners under recent investigation include "some with ties to extremist groups" who have been able to "purchase buses and acquire licenses," the bulletin says.
But Homeland Security and the FBI "have no information indicating these individuals are involved in a terrorist plot against the homeland," it says. The memo also notes: "Most attempts by foreign nationals in the United States to acquire school bus licenses to drive them are legitimate."
Nothing? Oh, that's what I thought!
I can't speak for you but this babytalk from the FBI is really starting to chap my ass. Are they the nations premiere law enforcement agency or sensitivity counselors?
They can choose any one.
