The Department of Homeland Security has been condemned by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) for its inflexibility and failure to designate January 6, 2021 as a special event.

...GAO has a body of work underway that examines the preparation, coordination, and response on January 6, that it will begin issuing over the next several months. The watchdog released a report on August 9 which focuses on the extent to which federal, state, and local government entities requested a special event designation for the planned events of January 6, 2021.

The report said there was enough intelligence regarding the planned protests for DHS to designate a special event, which "would likely have assured additional security to help respond to the January 6 attack on the Capitol"....

That's not want they wanted. They wanted bloodshed in the Capitol. The misunderestimated bigly. Now it's time for them to swing by a rope.

tRump didn't want the extra security in case his fine people got hurt. As it turned out the cops only offed one terrorist, one tasered himself in the 'nads and died and one OD'd and her "Don't Tread on Me" sign was ignored..

All of our military, intelligence, and security agencies are at least half full of secret fascist supporters who wanted 1/6 to succeed.

Biden and Garland are failing this country by not saving us from the terrorists and fascists within our own country. Not even the ones under their command. They're too worried about seeming partisan to save the country, even though this is our last chance.

But at least when america becomes a 1 party fascist state, democrats can feel good about how nonpartisan they were.

#3 Death by self tazer to the nads has got to be in the Darwin hall of fame.

Why isn't there more reporting about this loser. The Dems should make him the unofficial GQP mascot. Make T-shirts. Titled "Ow my balls!"

Pretty sure DHS knew what was coming. Pretty sure DHS was told to look the other way. Don't have evidence to support it, but this is exactly the type of thing DHS is supposed to protect against. When the traitors are in the White House, however, well, that's a little harder to manage.

Yeah, this is one where there is a fingerprint but we won't ever catch the finger. I could watch on live TV people say they were going to storm down the street. Even before that, national news shows talked about the emails going out to trump worshipers inviting them to the event. Why is every other cop in this country armed like a US soldier but the ones guarding an election count have no weapons? Someone wanted this.
