29. They've even done badly on fingerprints. Remember the Oregon lawyer they tried to frame?

They were 100% sure those were his fingerprints. Yes, they eventually released and even apologized, but that was after arresting him, vilifying him and going through his belongings and information with a fine toothed comb.

Completely agree about some of the sketchy techniques FBI has used and about "forcing an answer and comparing the characteristics that match." It's no big issue (and can be a source of amusement) when there aren't consequences for people. But it can devastate lives when they fit the evidence to the theory in active cases.

Hope that Henry's employees at Crowdstrike use better methodology than him. This isn't just any guy who played host and put his weight behind the theory. He's a rather important figure both in his past role in the FBI and in his current one investigating cyber intrusion.
