The feds are up to their old tricks once again – demonizing American citizens who are politically engaged and use the Internet as domestic terrorists in a transparent ploy to chill free speech and immobilize resistance to big government – when in actual fact every major terror plot in the United States was provocateured, contrived or directly facilitated by the federal government itself.
Council on Foreign Relations member Diane Sawyer attempts to lend the story some gravitas with her pained expression and stern words, but a 5-year-old could pick apart the propaganda.
“The nation’s top counterterrorism officials were blunt. The threat from within—of Americans willing to commit terrorist acts— is growing. FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III told a congressional hearing today that a spike in recent terrorism cases is direct evidence of the evolving threat,” reports ABC News.
The ABC report describes how “Hassan, Abdulmutallab and Shahzad are all believed to have links or have been influenced by radical Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki, a Yemeni-American who has moved from a propagandist for al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to an operational role, active in attack planning.” But as we have documented, Awlaki is the CIA’s supreme patsy-handler, he’s a double agent working for the feds.
Indeed, just about every one of those “recent terrorism cases” mentioned in the hearings has had the fingerprints of the feds all over it. We have never come across a major terror bust that was not manufactured or allowed to happen by the government.
Just yesterday yet another example came to light – the case of a 22-year-old Lebanese immigrant accused of attempting to bomb Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The dud bomb was of course “provided by FBI undercover agents,” reports the Associated Press, mirroring just about every other case where the feds infiltrate and radicalize a group of mentally deranged patsies before providing them with the means to carry out the attack.
This was exemplified nowhere better than the case of the “seven dipshits in a warehouse” as comedian Jon Stewart labeled them, a group of semi-retarded men in Chicago who were accused of plotting to bomb the Sears Tower, yet were radicalized and funded at every step by an agent of the South Florida Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Just about every example cited by Mueller, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano and National Counterterrorism Chief Michael Leiter during the hearing yesterday did nothing to indicate that there is a genuine domestic terror threat from Americans, since each one of the cases was directly engineered, facilitated or over hyped by the same gaggle of crooks pointing fingers at Americans for being terrorists.
– The attempted Christmas Day “underwear bomber” incident
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. The Detroit News reported how the State Department refused to revoke Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s visa despite the fact that he was on a terror watch list and allowed him to board the plane. Eyewitnesses reported that Abdulmutallab was accompanied by a well-dressed man who appeared to be in a position of authority who convinced ticket agents to allow him to board the plane despite the fact that he had no passport and was on a terrorist watch list. “He’s from Sudan and we do this all the time,” the man was reported as saying. The authorities changed their story on numerous occasions to combat eyewitness accounts from passengers like Kurt Haskell, as the feds struggled to uphold the flaky official explanation that Abdulmutallab was a lone terrorist.
Abdulmutallab’s bizarre behavior in apparently being unaware that there was a bomb in his briefs on Flight 253 strongly suggests that he was an unwitting patsy under the control of federal government handlers who, despite the botched attack, swiftly exploited the terror scare he created to ram through an intensification of the war in Yemen as well as mandating the lucrative roll out of full naked body scanners.

It later emerged that the plot was contrived by Anwar al-Awlaki, who as Webster Tarpley has documented is “an intelligence agency operative and patsy-minder” and “one of the premier terror impresarios of the age operating under Islamic fundamentalist cover” whose job it is to “motivate and encourage groups of mentally impaired and suggestible young dupes who were entrapped into “terrorist plots” by busy FBI and Canadian RCMP agents during recent years.”
– The averted May 1 bombing in Times Square by Faisal Shahzad
Shahzad was again later reported to have been directed by Awlaki, the CIA’s premier patsy-handler. His deadly attempted terror attack amounted to little more than a box of fireworks in the trunk of a car. The establishment media hyped the non-story as a harrowing reminder of the threat to America posed by terrorists despite the fact that New York’s bomb squad said the mishmash of fireworks and wires was not even a bomb. Kevin Barry, a former supervisor in the New York City police bomb squad, speculated that if it had functioned “it would be more of an incendiary event” than an explosion.
– The 2007 plot to attack Fort Dix
Attorneys proved that the FBI informants were the key figures behind the operation and that the accused, six foreign-born Muslims, were merely bungling patsies. The plot was also overseen by intelligence agency operative Anwar al-Awlaki.
These are just a handful of the innumerable cases of government-provocateured terror events that have been exploited to tighten the screws on peaceful American citizens, like the anti-gas drilling and second amendment groups that were listed as terrorists by an Israeli company tasked with spying on them for Homeland Security.
Indeed, the only American citizen who demonstrably encouraged violence was radio talk show host Hal Turner, who was being paid by the FBI to do so.
There’s little doubt that the feds are again hyping the terror that they manufacture as an election ploy to try to derail the momentum currently being enjoyed by anti-establishment candidates like Rand Paul and Sharron Angle. Just as the Bush administration issued fake terror alerts under then Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge in an attempt to sway the outcome of key votes, the Obama regime is following suit.
We’re also seeing a deliberate effort to tie domestic extremism and terror to the Internet as a means of greasing the skids for the passage of Cybersecurity legislation, which will hand Obama the power to shut down the Internet for at least four months without Congressional oversight.
From the ABC report,
Leiter, the head of the National Counterterrorism Center, said that the vast array of terrorist propaganda on the Internet was having an influence in driving individuals in the United States to turn to potential acts of terrorism.
Describing the power of the Internet and its use as a recruiting tool, Leiter said, “A blend of al Qaeda inspiration, perceived victimization, and glorification of past plotting, has become increasingly accessible through the Internet, and English-language websites are tailored to address the unique concerns of US-based extremists.”
As we have seen from the MIAC report, the aforementioned spying case in Pennsylvania and a host of others in recent years, the federal government defines “terrorist propaganda” as any material critical of the state. The Department of Defense characterizes peaceful protest as “low level terrorism” in its own report.
The real targets of the anti-terror apparatus that the feds have empowered through their own network of Muslim patsies and handlers are not Al-Qaeda members, they are American citizens from across the political spectrum who exercise their rights legally in an effort to point out the alarming fact that the government is brazenly exploiting the war on terror to crush the right to dissent of millions of U.S. citizens.
