A letter from the governor of Oregon, Katherine Brown, to the F B I director, James Comey, attorney general, Loretta Lynch, and President Barack Obama, was published Thursday by Oregon Public Broadcasting’s John Sepulveda.
The letter details the Governor has reached her limit with the quote, “armed radicals” occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
She also pleads with the F B I and Attorney General insisting for a quote, “swift resolution to the matter.”
While the governor did not define, swift, she did confirm a large presence of state and federal agencies operating in the town of Burns, and indicated the town is under great stress due to the Bundy occupation.
Sepulveda details the Governor’s misgivings with the lack of Federal action and disregard for the residents from a press conference in Salem where the governor stated quote, “The residents of Harney County have been overlooked and underserved by federal official’s response thus far, I have conveyed these very grave concerns directly to our leaders at the highest levels of our government.”
At the press conference Governor Brown reiterated her insistence for a swift federal response stating quote, “Federal authorities must move quickly to end the occupation, and hold all of the wrong doers accountable, this spectacle of lawlessness must end.”
If history is any indicator, of how the F B I may handle the swift response the Governor is insisting, one need look no further than the Federal government response at Waco.
After 51 days, that standoff swiftly concluded when the F B I initiated a tear gas attack and set fire to a building burning alive seventy six religious men, women, and children.
As of this report, the F B I has begun communication with Ammon Bundy through phone, however if the Governor gets her wish it could end in fire.
