PsiChi: Do our "intelligence" agencies do anything besides false flags?
kbronsito: Mark Ratner: kbronsito: Do not pass Go. Do not collect 40 virgins.It's 72 virgins, not 40. You can't expect them to blow themselves up for a measly 40 virgins or even 60 for that matter, but 72 is just about as good as it gets./most golf courses are par 72//coincidence?It is 72!. I wrote a post on some other thread earlier with the number 40. I guess my mind wasn't all there on this post.
CruJones: Apparently everyone in this thread read different articles than I did. Because the stupid one linked, and the one it linked to, gave zero impression that this was any sort of "entrapment" or setup. Why is everyone so hell bent on not believing that some people actually are trying to commit terrorist acts?I don't get it. Sounds like a win to me. Guy wanted to blow shiat up, tried to get a bomb, got the feds instead, who set him up. Unless there are some other articles I'm missing.PsiChi 2012-02-17 07:15:18 PMDo our "intelligence" agencies do anything besides false flags?
itazurakko: TheOmni: Is this another of those "FBI foils their own plot" things?Exactly my question too.Step 1: Troll some incompetent person into doing what they thought was a terror plotStep 2: By giving them information they'd never come up with on their own, so they get further along than they ever would have otherwiseStep 3: Make a big show of stopping the criminal you set upStep 4: Profit? Hey, at least your numbers are good.
Weaver95: THIS is a domestic terrorist. what the FBI finds are not even in the same class as Heemeyer was.
Bob16: Do you live in a third world country that has resources ? There's a good chance you'll get to see one.
olddeegee: It's like a cop seeing someone shoplifting a candy bar, but convincing him to take a TV or two so they can get him for a felony.
Magorn: GAT_00: How is it not entrapment if you give him the ability to commit the crime?Quick answer? to plead entrapment you need to affirmatively show that you weren't inclined to commit the crime anyway. In a lot of these cases they are right on the line which is why they quietly get plead out after the splashy arrest
UnspokenVoice: You do know he is retarded, yes?

Mordis: I picture some passive-aggressive idiot typing his "manifesto"in MS Word as Clippy pops up"Looks like you wants to overthrow the government, would you like me to help?"
Nem Wan: TheOmni: Is this another of those "FBI foils their own plot" things?I don't think people who can figure that out are the target audience.It would be funny if the guy they planned to arrest turned out to be an agent from another branch of government who thought the FBI agents were real terrorists and they accidentally arrested each other. I don't supposed they'd put out a press release when that happens.
BigJake: I did.
Medic Zero: "what he thought were explosives"?Lemme guess, we paid the FBI to encourage someone to make a bomb and sell them the materials again?/ facepalm// feel safer already/// no DNRTFA
Pro Zack: and it's true. the folks selling the guns were very careful to make sure their asses were covered. it's the idiots who dreamed up the brilliant 'fast and furious' plan who will (hopefully) go to jail.
RedEmily: Was it a sweater vest/ Maybe it was Rick Sanitorium.
Aigoo: TheOmni: Is this another of those "FBI foils their own plot" things?I was actually surprised to RTFA and see it was a non-citizen at this point, to be perfectly honest. I half expected to see OWS and the Tea Party had decided they hated Congresscritters more than one another. ;)
Igor Jakovsky: Had this guy been named Jimbob Redneckerson and he had a Tea Party affiliation, I imagine the tone of this thread would be a bit different.
Dr.Zom: A few days ago a pickup truck, with paratrooper plates from Florida, reportedly full of home-made bombs was found parked outside the capitol building in Topeka, KS.The cops released the guy and now they're saying it was just fireworks.I'm sure this is just one big coincidence.Link (new window)
eeeleeet: because the government doesn't want widespread panic
eeeleeet: Unfortunately I probably wouldn't make the cut
eeeleeet: We have to run a few articles like this in the media every once in awhile to show Americans how the FBI and other agencies are really doing their job
Sherman Potter: TheOmni: Is this another of those "FBI foils their own plot" things?THIS.FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST, THIS./wake the fark up, people.
cman: ALAHU AKBAR!!!!!*Click* *click* *click*ALAHU DAMN IT!
glassbottomboatcaptain: Which is a pretty clear reflection of how the general public thinks more highly of shifty arabs on expired travel visas than they do of Republicans...
clyph: glassbottomboatcaptain: Which is a pretty clear reflection of how the general public thinks more highly of shifty arabs on expired travel visas than they do of Republicans...One group represents a clear and present danger to our freedom, our Constitution, and our way of life.The other group are a bunch of people from 3rd world shiatholes who would really just like to have decent job.
