Agent Josh Campbell quit the FBI this week, and then wrote a long whiny op-ed for The New York Times. You can’t help but roll your eyes when you hear his reason for resigning: It is just so MEAN that people are exposing corruption in the FBI, and he just can’t handle it.
As far as Campbell and the New York Times are concerned we should all just forget about corruption in the FBI because that’s what would be “best for the country.”
From The Gateway Pundit:
Josh Campbell, a special agent at the FBI, resigned on Friday citing dwindling public support and partisan attacks. “To be effective, the F.B.I. must be believed and must maintain the support of the public it serves. … These political attacks on the bureau must stop,” he wrote. “If those critics of the agency persuade the public that the F.B.I. cannot be trusted, they will also have succeeded in making our nation less safe.”
So, it’s not the FBI’s fault that they have lost America’s trust. It’s our fault because we refuse to ignore blatant corruption. With that kind of screwy logic it’s no wonder that people are losing faith in this agency. Still, we shouldn’t say anything about it because if we are all just a bunch of blind, docile, idiots we’ll be much safer, right?
Buh-bye Campbell. Those of us who have our eyes open are happy to have one less corrupt agent to worry about.
