ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Speaking at the installation of new FBI Director James Comey, President Barack Obama said Comey's vast experience and sense of right and wrong made him the correct choice for the job. "It's just about impossible to find a matter of justice he has not tackled, and it's hard to imagine somebody who not more uniquely qualified to lead a bureau that covers all of it - traditional threats like violent and organized crime to the constantly changing threats like terrorism and cyber security," President Obama said, speaking at the courtyard on the FBI building's grounds in Washington. Comey takes over for Robert Mueller, who worked as FBI director for 12 years.
