As the armed militant occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge stretches into its third week, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has asked the federal government to intervene.
She wrote in a letter to FBI Director James Comey, “Efforts to negotiate have not been successful, and now it is unclear what steps, if any, federal authorities might take to bring this untenable situation to an end and restore normalcy to this community.”
The federal government has been criticized for its “passive approach” to dealing with the armed protesters. But it could have something to do with the FBI’s past missteps with armed conflicts.
