An effort by the FBI to stop terrorist attacks on US soil before they begin has turned into (or perhaps by design always was) a propaganda tool to legitimize the fear of "lone wolves." If we are to fight a war on terror, then we need terrorists to fight, right?
The big boys and girls in charge made the decision to create a nation wide chain of domestic spies to infiltrate communities and seek out the most vulnerable potential "radical" individual to persuade into becoming a terrorist. Once the FBI informant picks his target he gains the trust of the individual. The informant will then began the process of creating a "lone wolf" terrorist to later bust and parade around on the news as a "thwarted terror plot".
A detailed and well researched report published on MotherJones.com on this topic begins with a story in which two men become friends at a local Mosque. James Cromitie, an angry bigoted man who later changed his name to Abdul Rahman after converting to Islam, and his new found friend who went by Maqsood, are having a discussion about progressing the jihad against the west.
Maqsood had told Rahman that he was an agent for a Pakistani terror group and was sent to build a team to continue the jihad against the United States. He asked Rahman what his ideal target would be if he had the resources to do so. Rahman said a bridge would be his choice.
Maqsood, knowing that a bridge is much to difficult a task to pull off offers a more realistic idea to the man who other wise would not be planing a terror attack.
"But bridges are too hard to be hit," Maqsood pleaded, "because they're made of steel."Maqsood, the so called Pakistani terror group agent who in reality is a FBI agent, then reminds his impressionable new friend of the success of the Mumbai attacks. He pointed out how the attack which targeted hotels, cafes and a Jewish center gained round the clock media coverage.
"We have two missiles, okay?" he offered. "Two Stingers, rocket missiles."
One former high-level FBI official speaking to Mother Jones says that, for every informant officially employed by the bureau, up to three unofficial agents are working undercover. The Washington DC Metro bombing plot, the New York City subway plot, the attempt to blow up Chicago’s Sears Tower, the Portland Christmas terror plot, and dozens more were all orchestrated by FBI agents.
