Friday, February 01, 2013

Trevor Aaronson talks about his investigation into how the FBI has, under the guise of engaging in counterterrorism since 9/11, built a network of more than 15,000 informants whose primary purpose is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create and facilitate phony terrorist plots so that the Bureau can then claim it is winning the war on terror. The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI's Manufactured War on Terrorism reveals information about the FBI's paid informants and documents the methods the FBI uses to ensnare Muslims in terrorist plots.
