Terror? We’ve got the pumped up numbers to prove it
WASHINGTON – Federal prosecutors counted immigration violations, marriage fraud and drug trafficking among anti-terror cases in the four years after 9/11 even though no evidence linked them to terror activity, a Justice Department audit said Tuesday.
Overall, nearly all of the terrorism-related statistics on investigations, referrals and cases examined by department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine were either diminished or inflated. Only two of 26 sets of department data reported between 2001 and 2005 were accurate, the audit found.</em>
Seems the DoJ is following the “War on Drugs” playbook to a tee- wildly inflate your numbers to make a more compelling case for funding. Which is all- ALL – any of these “wars” have to do with. Money.
Feel safer now? Good.
