There is no reason to continue referring to the FBI as the ‘world’s premier law enforcement agency,’ because the bureau keeps proving that it isn’t.
The latest failure: The Boulder, Colo. shooting suspect.
He was identified on Tuesday: Syrian immigrant and Muslim follower Ahmad Al-Issa, 21.
He is accused of killing 10 people at a King Sooper’s supermarket on Monday, one of whom was a veteran Boulder police officer.
Al-Issa was previously known to the Feds because he was linked to someone else being investigated by the FBI.
Not even kidding.
NYT: 'The suspect's identity was previously known to the F.B.I. because he was linked to another individual under investigation by the bureau, according to law enforcement officials.'

The New York Times reported:
The gunman was armed with both a military-style semiautomatic rifle and a pistol when he walked into the King Soopers store on Monday and opened fire, officials said. They identified the suspect who was arrested at the scene as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, who lived in Arvada, a nearby suburb; he was charged on Tuesday with 10 counts of first-degree murder, which in Colorado carries a penalty of life imprisonment without parole.
A police affidavit made public on Tuesday said that last week he bought a Ruger AR-556 semiautomatic pistol — essentially a shortened version of an AR-15 style rifle, which fires the same small-caliber, high-velocity ammunition, first developed for battlefield use. Statements from the police and the charging documents did not make fully clear what models of weapons he used in the attack, and whether the Ruger was one of them.
The suspect's identity was previously known to the F.B.I. because he was linked to another individual under investigation by the bureau, according to law enforcement officials.
When he was a senior at Arvada West High School, Mr. Alissa was convicted in 2018 of misdemeanor assault against another student in a classroom, and told the police at the time that it was in retaliation for insults and ethnic taunts. Fellow students recall him as having a fierce temper that would flare in response to setbacks or slights.
Way to go, FBI.
Wonder which Trump supporters and former Trump aides the bureau was focused on instead?
