I WANT YOU TO REMAIN VERY AFRAID AND BELIEVE ANYTHING THE FBI SAYS. THEY NEVER LIE.
Last week, four men from Newburgh, New York were arrested in what the FBI says was a plot to bomb two synagogues in the Bronx and shoot down military planes with Stinger missiles.
What is most interesting about this is not that we were protected from a supposed terrorist attack, but that the whole “plot” was invented by an FBI informant:
The defendants, in their efforts to acquire weapons, dealt with an informant acting under law enforcement supervision, authorities said.
The FBI and other agencies monitored the men and provided an inactive missile and inert C-4 to the informant for the defendants, a federal complaint said.
In June 2008, the informant met Cromitie in Newburgh and Cromitie complained that his parents had lived in Afghanistan and he was upset about the war there and that many Muslim people were being killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan by U.S. military forces, officials said.
Did you catch the last sentence? He was upset that his fellow Muslims was being mercilessly bombed, and when tricked into retaliating, he and his three accomplices were arrested.
They did not “hate our liberties,” as nearly every media mouthpiece recites ad nauseum, they hated the fact the U.S. is brutally occupying and pummeling two-and-a-half Muslim countries.
This is just another example of how our global empire*, with over 800 bases in over 120 countries with soldiers ready to be deployed, creates a lot of backlash, and in the Middle Eastern world, this means terrorism.
