Ignore the usual brouhaha about the arrests, a number of media outlets pointed out that this was the same old, same old useful idiots kind of sting.
Read here or here or here.
Yet not every New Yorker was impressed by the latest in a long line of purported anti-terrorist triumphs that have supposedly averted tragedy in New York, Chicago, Toronto and several other North American cities since September 11, 2001.
Useful idiots, with no real weapons, no real explosives wooed by an undercover informant who sets up the entire sting.
Kindlon’s complaints were echoed by other legal experts who have repeatedly questioned the FBI’s reliance on undercover informants – known as confidential witnesses (CWs) – who lure gullible radicals into far-fetched plots that are then foiled by the agents monitoring them.
Yup, this same operation has been carried out before. One writer even noted this was an ideal false flag op.
Face it, law enforcement has to do, what it has to do to make and keep itself relevant. To keep taxpayer dollars pouring in, they have to demonstrate their necessity. Even if that means concocting "terrorist" groups.
Not necessarily limited to law enforcement, it seems everyone wants a piece of the taxpayer pie? Also getting a slice of the taxpayer pie, the two synagogues, the alleged targets, are now getting money from Homeland Security $25,000 dollars each to upgrade or install security systems.
It seems it was Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, who approached Gov. David A Paterson and requested the security money.
Now a bunch of thoughts come to my mind..
Seperation of church and state?
Were the synagogues really threatened?
Was this a reward to synagogues for their use and/or abuse in the set up?
Also, when Mosques are targetted are they afforded the same type of security???
How about other churches? And other terrorists?
