FBI behind the eightball

The Washington Post reports:

"Five years after Arab terrorists attacked the United States, only 33 FBI agents have even a limited proficiency in Arabic, and none of them work in the sections of the bureau that coordinate investigations of international terrorism, according to new FBI statistics.

Counting agents who know only a handful of Arabic words -- including those who scored zero on a standard proficiency test -- just 1 percent of the FBI's 12,000 agents have any familiarity with the language, the statistics show."


Astounding! - and more than an indication of the insular attitude of Americans to anything not American. How the FBI's failure to get appropriate staff can be squared with the USA's alleged fight against terrorism and "fascist Muslims" is impossible to fathom.
