FBI KNEW ARIZONA ISLAMIST WAS TARGETING TEXAS CONFERENCE!

Elton Simpson (on left) , reportedly tweeted minutes before the attack that he and his fellow assailant had pledged allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The FBI knew Elton Simpson was heading to Garland, Texas.
It’s not clear if local authorities were notified.
FBI Director James Coomey said they may have missed others.
Comey added: “There are “hundreds, maybe thousands” of people across the country who are receiving recruitment overtures or directives to attack the U.S.”
Shepard Smith reported:
The FBI knew one of the gunmen in Sunday’s attack in Texas could be targeting the controversial Mohammad cartoon contest, anti-Islam conference… And they knew it hours before the attack occurred. That comes straight from the FBI director who just moments ago held a closed door meeting with reporters. The FBI put out a bulletin with suspect’s picture before the attack. He said it’s not clear if police in Garland, Texas knew about that bulletin.
