“Nobody knew that this guy was a threat,” Teresa Carlson, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Milwaukee office, said. “That’s the problem with these types of cases.”

“This guy” being Wade Michael Page, the white supremacist who killed 6 people at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, WI on Sunday, Aug. 5.

Gee, it sure would be nice if the federal government had an agency with the resources and expertise to infiltrate extremist organizations, run sting operations and make arrests before violent, life-threatening attacks were carried out.
