FBI: Workings of a Police State

In a case that says as much about the judicial system (and the judge) as it does about the workings of the FBI, the case of James Cromitie, and others, is quoted, deservedly, as one of the, 5 Outrageous Examples of FBI Intimidation and Entrapment Link.

When I first read about the case, probably at the time it was going to trial, it was a real sideways headshaker, ''This can't be for real, I don't believe what I'm reading,'' kind of a case.

In a nutshell, FBI Agent Provocateur, Shahed Hussain, recruited four nobodies, whose potential as terrorists was probably equal to that of my own. Recruited four nobodies, whose IQs, I think we can safely assume, were matched only by that of their bank balances, with the promise of cash cars and drugs, if they will follow Hussain's plan to commit dastardly deeds. Or as one defence lawyer put it: "the government designed, funded, supplied, engineered and directed every detail of an entirely fake terrorist plot."

You can read about the case, as one of the ''five outrageous examples'' at the link above, or as a longer stand alone article below. Both recommended.

Was David Williams IV a terrorist? Or was he just out to make an easy score by scamming the government's informant? Link
