Great work, FBI!

Right. Mr. Comey and his predecessors have finally achieved what no one else thought was possible: driven the agency's reputation even lower than it was when the lid was blown off COINTELPRO in the 1970's. Given what we've learned they've been up to since 9/11 it isn't surprising that most Americans might not question the proposition that the FBI is involved in attacking the computers of citizens with malware -- even ransomware. Basically more sociopathic behavior from public employees who were (in retrospect, foolishly) entrusted with the critical job of protecting us from some seriously dangerous people.
