The FBI and Counterterrorism
Monday, August 29, 2011
Since 9/11 the FBI has made counterterrorism its number one priority, and its efforts have spawned a wide network of informants who are mostly tasked with spying on Muslim Americans. Mother Jones reporter Trevor Aaronson writes about how the Agency is infiltrating communities and in some cases, provoking people to plan terrorist attacks. He's the author of "Terrorists for the FBI," in the latest issue of Mother Jones.
