“It’s people like this that you don’t want to let out of your sight, and this was a mistake,” Sen. Graham said. “Either our laws are insufficient or the FBI failed, but we’re at war with radical Islamists and we need to up our game.”
"This is at least the fifth case I'm aware of where the FBI has failed to stop someone," Rep. King said on "Fox News Sunday," citing the examples of Anwar al-Awlaki, Nidal Malik Hasan, Carlos Bledsoe, and David Coleman Headley.
"This is the latest in a series of cases like this … where the FBI is given information about someone being a potential terrorist," he said. "They look at them, and then they don't take action, and then [those individuals] go out and commit murders."
