Mini-Rumination: What Would Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. Think?

In a 2009 New York Times article, the director of the FBI estimated that about 40 percent of his agents work on the fight against terrorism.  A 2007 article in the Christian Science Monitor reported that the number of prosecutions directed to the U.S. Justice Department by the FBI had fallen more than 30 percent.

Meanwhile, crime is down nation-wide.

Kind of makes you wonder what the FBI was doing before 9/11 – and whether it was any good at it.
