FBI Report Details Impact of Sequestration

September 30, 2013  | 

In the first week of his new job as FBI director, James B. Comey had already heard about how training had stopped for recruits at Quantico and that the bureau wasn't planning on bringing in any new agents next year, all because of budget cuts.

But Comey was stunned when he began visiting FBI field offices this month and heard directly from his special agents. New intelligence investigations were not being opened. Criminal cases were being closed. Informants couldn't be paid. And there was not enough funding for agents to put gas in their cars.

In a 29-page report, "Voices From the Field," agents from across the country warn that budget cuts and possible furloughs are hurting public safety and threaten their ability to protect Americans.

Read the full Washington Post report.

This is insane, with everything going on with our country how can one of the most important departments be cut. Not fair, like the article said, the agents don't get paid alot yet they put their lives on the line everyday they go into work.

Yup have the President explain why we need 55,000 IRS agents but cannot afford to run a few people thru FBI Academy. This government continues to operate in a vacuum. Can't afford Border Patrol agents but can afford to waste more money on cameras and tech toys and give money to A**hole countries that hate us and want jihads in this country. Will the idiot people of this country ever wake up?

@ Boston, what good would it be to have the President explain, he would only tell us another lie.

Boston @ 10/2/2013 4:42 PM

@ Capt Crunch, Your correct sir! He has lied about everything else and I'm just amazed at the BS he throws out to the American people and they believe him. If only he was Pinocchio.
