FBI Continues Dangerous Self-Promotion via Entrapment
“Recordings reveal FBI gave man a rifle, urged him to carry out mass shooting to ‘Defend Islam,’” Activist Post reported Thursday in a story by USMC veteran and NSA intelligence operator Matt Agorist. “A little over two years ago, Samy Mohamed Hamzeh, 25, found himself in the midst of an FBI sting. Little did he know that he was being groomed for terrorism by the same government who claims to fight terrorism.”
Despite intensive and prolonged recruitment efforts, Hamzeh resisted. In the end, per The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “the resulting charges were two counts of possessing a machine gun and one count of possessing a silencer, all of which he bought for $570 from undercover FBI agents … [D]espite the hours of recorded Arabic conversations with the informants, he ultimately ‘rejected their overtures and lectured his informant friends about why such a plan would be wrong.’”
The price alone would alarm and alert any but the lowest-hanging fruit, which seems to be “the government’s” M.O. in such all-too-familiar operations.
“In Alaska, we have the 2011-2012 Schaeffer Cox case where Cox was constantly egged on to criminal acts – even threatened – by the exact same informant (Bill Fulton) who handcuffed a reporter at one of Joe Miller’s town halls in 2010,” the Restoring Liberty Blog recalls in its introduction to the Hamzeh story. “That was the incident that the national press suggested cost the election (in reality, it turned out to be massive voter fraud, as we discovered in subsequent ballot reviews). By the FBI’s own admission, that same informant was debriefed by the agency after the handcuffing incident.”
And it’s not like we couldn’t cite many more cases.
Similarly, per Pastor Chuck Baldwin, “The entire case against Hutaree appears to be based upon the testimony of an FBI undercover agent inside the group. Placing agent provocateurs inside groups such as Hutaree is a classic strategy of federal police agencies.”
We could spend all day citing federal, state and municipal cases.
“If you’re submitting budget proposals for a law enforcement agency, for an intelligence agency, you’re not going to submit the proposal that ‘We won the war on terror and everything’s great,’ cause the first thing that’s gonna happen is your budget’s gonna be cut in half,” Agorist quotes former FBI assistant director Thomas Fuentes. “You know, it’s my opposite of Jesse Jackson’s ‘Keep Hope Alive’—it’s ‘Keep Fear Alive.’ Keep it alive.”
“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services,” the piece continues, this time quoting 20-year Marine Corps Intelligence Officer David Steele. “In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.
That’s not to say there is never justification for law enforcement infiltration of subversive groups and for using CIs. Of course there is, and in those cases, lives are being risked for the noble purpose of stopping evil. But when the line is crossed and the evil is fabricated for self-serving purposes, that spits on the terrible stresses and sacrifices of those risking all to save others and spreads the cancer of corruption. It betrays a main purpose for having government in the first place, as set down in the Preamble to the Constitution.
It should go without saying for those who have joined in groups for the honorable purposes of mutual defense and for promoting Constitutional rule of law: The best way to be entrapped is to trust someone urging illegal acts of violence. And that person may even be someone well-known to all, who may have become compromised and then pressed to betray his friends as the only alternative to incarceration.
In the words of “Sgt. Phil Esterhaus” from the 80s classic “Hill Street Blues”:
Because the way things are, you don’t even have to do anything illegal to find yourself in a world of hurt, so being on guard against even the appearance of improprieties can be the best defense.
