A former FBI agent has claimed that the agency manufacture nearly all of the major terrorist plots they claim are carried out by terror groups.
According to Michael German, the FBI routinely entrap vulnerable individuals who would never have committed any violence, and brainwash them into committing terrorist acts so they can be “caught” and “punished” by the FBI.
“They’re manufacturing terrorism cases,” Michael German, a former undercover agent with the FBI who now researches national-security law at New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice, told The Times. “These people are five steps away from being a danger to the United States.”
‘They target people who are genuinely psychotic’
Increasingly, experts are worried that undercover operations of this kind infringe on the rights of Americans.
Stephen Downs, an attorney and founding member of Project Salam , which gives legal support to Muslims, told Business Insider that ” the government has developed a technique of engaging targets in conversations of a somewhat provocative nature, and then trying to pick up on things the target says, which might suggest illegal activity – and then trying to push them into pursuing those particular activities.”
