‘This is potentially one of the most bogus and crass attempts yet, as the FBI rushes to grandstand over what appears to be another case of entrapment, joined by a media keen to push the fear envelope in America in the wake of last week’s international terror event in Paris.
1-Chris-Lee-Cornell-OhioEager to capitalize on the media wave generated by the Paris Attacks, jobsworth FBI agents decided to accelerate the frame-up of 20 year old Christopher Lee Cornell (photo, left) from Cincinnati, Ohio, claiming the youth was planning a “pipe bomb attack” against the nation’s Capitol in Washington DC.
Amazingly, US media jumped all over this story, trying to somehow tie it to Paris, and also claim that Cornell was “linked to ISIS”, and that this was somehow an “ISIS-inspired attack”, only no attack actually took place.’
‘The anti-Iran terrorist group, Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as MEK, NCRI and PMOI), bribed former FBI Director Louis Freeh to facilitate its removal from the US blacklist of terrorist organizations, a recently-released report revealed.
According to a new report released by The Intercept on January 1, Freeh accepted up to $50,000 (bribe money) by the MKO to help delist the terrorist group from the US blacklist of terrorist organizations.
“Freeh is one of many former US officials who got paid big speaking fees (reportedly up to $50,000 a pop) by a creepy anti-Iran group called the People’s Mujahedin, also known as Mojahedin-e-Khalq, or MEK, to successfully advocate for its removal from the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations,” the report said.’
‘Steve Wigginton, the U.S. Attorney in Southern District of Illinois, says posts on Twitter reveal an effort by ISIS to team up with not only criminals, but anarchists and sovereign citizens.
“We received intelligence reports for law enforcement showing actual tweets ISIS was putting out encouraging Americans to join the people who were burning down buildings in Ferguson to engage that kind of conduct across America,” said Wigginton.
“They are trying to reach the people who are anti- government to begin with. We have a number of those individuals in the U.S., whether they are sovereign citizens, whether they are anarchists, they all showed up at one point or another in the St. Louis area in the last few months,” he added.’
‘Internal emails show the FBI worked to knock down rumors and conspiracy theories that circulated following the death last year of journalist Michael Hastings in a car crash.
The claims went mainstream after WikiLeaks tweeted the day after the June 18, 2013, crash that Hastings had contacted the group’s attorney, claiming the FBI was investigating him.
The FBI was contacted by numerous journalists and others asking whether the agency had been investigating the investigative reporter prior to his death at age 33.’
‘Top FBI officials are working to convince an indistinct regulatory entity in the nation’s capital to allow the agency to alter its rules of engagement in a naked bid to seize more authority to breach computers and put them under electronic surveillance both in the U.S. and around the world.
As reported by The Guardian, one of Britain’s top investigative papers, civil liberties groups are already sounding alarm bells, warning that the proposed rule changes would amount “to a power grab by the agency that would ride roughshod over strict limits to searches and seizures laid out under the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution.” They also worry that the rule changes would lead to invasions of privacy.’
‘The graphic contents of an anonymous letter in which the Federal Bureau of Investigation called Martin Luther King a “filthy abnormal animal” have been made public for the first time.
Written in 1964 by a deputy of the feared FBI chief J Edgar Hoover posing as a disillusioned civil rights activist, the typewritten note appears to have been a heavy-handed attempt to blackmail King into taking his own life.
Already a notorious footnote in American history, the “suicide letter” was heavily censored when it was first published, with most of its more outrageous language remaining secret.’
‘Critics of the tactic say it is just another reason for Americans not to trust mainstream media websites after learning that the FBI has recently used an underhanded tactic to nab a suspect.
According to The Seattle Times, Federal Bureau of Investigation techies and agents set up a phony Times website-based news story in order to arrest a bomb threat suspect. The site reports:
The FBI in Seattle created a fake news story on a bogus Seattle Times web page to plant software in the computer of a suspect in a series of bomb threats to Lacey’s Timberline High School in 2007, according to documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) in San Francisco.’
