Whenever we have a big attack in our country that leads to the deaths of many people, it seems like we always end up hearing afterwards that they were once under investigation by the FBI. Is this actually true and why is it true if it is?
Based on a new study by the Department of Justice Inspector General, the FBI dropped investigations into several Islamic terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.
Nidal Hasan - the Ft. Hood shooter who killed 13 and injured more than 30 others
Tamerlan Tsarnaev - the Boston Marathon bomber who killed three and injured nearly 300 others
Elton Simpson - the Garland, TX man who attacked a security officer over a cartoon of Mohammad the prophet of Islam
Omar Mateen - the man who killed 49 gay men at the Pulse night club
Ahmad Rahami - who injured 35 people in New York and New Jersey after a bombing
Esteban Santiago - who killed 5 people and injured over 40 others
All of these men had all been under investigation at some point by the FBI and they ultimately dropped the investigations. They either really suck at their job or they did it intentionally.
Call me a conspiracy theorist if you will, but I do not put it beyond our government that they would still brainwash people into committing these heinous acts.

The report says the following regarding each of the attacks that are mentioned above:
Following most of these attacks, the FBI conducted or requested various retrospective reviews to identify and assess its procedures and actions associated with its prior involvement with the subjects. While the results of these reviews varied, some of the conclusions and recommendations in these reports focused on the need for the FBI to update and improve its process for assessing counterterrorism threats and suspicious activities in the FBI's Guardian system.
