THE FBI CRIME LAB PROBLEMS are an old InstaPundit staple. Now prisoners are getting their convictions reversed. That, of course, means that innocent people went to jail — while guilty ones, presumably, continued to prey on the community.

Have heads rolled at the FBI over this? Not hardly. But then they haven’t rolled over the pre-9/11 dropped balls either, so why should they?

A bigger question is why should we have confidence in the FBI’s ability to do its job?
