Sorry, But Not Beliveable

From Fox News:
FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that the agency believes it stopped potential acts of violence in the month before the July 4 holiday.
Comey said authorities suspect that some of the more than 10 people arrested during that time were planning to commit violence tied to the holiday. But he declined during a wide-ranging discussion with reporters to describe any of the potential plots that might have been thwarted or to identify specific individuals the FBI thought might carry out an attack.
Federal agents had ramped up efforts in recent months to arrest Islamic State sympathizers across the country, arresting more than 10 in the last four weeks in places including New Jersey, Ohio and North Carolina.
"I do believe that our work disrupted efforts to kill people, likely in connection with July 4," Comey said.
The FBI and Department of Homeland Security had warned of a heightened terror threat tied to the July 4 weekend, but had not publicly identified any specific plot they were tracking. A law enforcement bulletin issued ahead of the holiday, Comey said, was motivated by the overall threat.
Comey also said the current crop of Westerners attracted by the Islamic State's messaging is so unpredictable that it can be hard for federal authorities to ever be sure of their plans, or when they might act. Whereas Al-Qaida would train operatives and carefully scope out targets, the concern among law enforcement officials is that the Islamic State is motivating people to commit violence "on a very short string."
So, they claim they stopped potential terrorist attacks during the 4th of July weekend but does not provide any details or specific arrests.
Considering that the Obama administration lies on every day that ends in "y", I just don't believe them.
But many federal and state and local cops sure picked up some nice paychecks that featured holiday and overtime pay.
So, unless the FBI or other agency shows some arrests or some kind of documents that show there was a definite terrorist threat during the 4th of July weekend, I call BS.
And there is this from the article: He cited as an example the case of a 26-year-old terror suspect who was fatally shot by police in Boston last month after authorities said he lunged at them with a military-style knife. The FBI has said he had been scheming with other men, both now facing charges, of a future plot to kill a conservative blogger known for provoking Muslims but decided to change plans.
Hope they didn't mean me.
