FBI Agents Responsible for Majority of Terrorist Plots in the United States

The Federal Bureau of Investigation employs over 15,000 undercover agents with many of them earning as much as $100,000 per assignment.  Well paid and many in number, these undercover agents have been responsible for stopping a large amount of terrorist stings that have could have resulted in catastrophic events comparable to the 9/11 attacks.

These same agents are also responsible for plotting these terrorist schemes.

According to a story done by the Moscow based “RT TV” website, the FBI has in recent years used trained informants not just to snitch on suspected terrorists, but to set them up from the very beginning.  The RT website cited a report put together by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley that reveals, “that the FBI regularly infiltrates communities where they suspect terrorist-minded individuals to be engaging with others.” and would encourage the suspects to carry out attacks by “providing weaponry, funds and a plan,” only to bust them before any of the events fully materialize.

The report goes on to state that this tactic has been used by the FBI to stop many of the high profile would-be terrorist attacks including “the Washington DC Metro bombing plot, the New York City subway plot, the attempt to blow up Chicago’s Sears Tower and dozens more were all orchestrated by FBI agents.”

Most of these “set-up” stings go purposefully unreported as many of the men set up by FBI informants to carry out attacks don’t actually go through with the attack, but are still sentenced upwards of 25 years.  “The problem with the cases we’re talking about is that defendants would not have done anything if not kicked in the ass by government agents” says Martin Stolar, who represented a suspect involved in a New York City bombing plot that was set-up by FBI agents; “They’re creating crimes to solve crimes so they can claim a victory in the war on terror.”

The FBI claims this method is a plan for “preemption,” “prevention” and “disruption.”
