Synthetic Terror Story (Again)
Fans of synthetic terror should have a look at this article in the Washington Post today: FBI+Role+in+Terror+Probe+Questioned.
"What Batiste did not know was that the bin Laden representative was really an FBI informant. The warehouse in which they were meeting had been rented and wired for sound and video by bureau agents, who were monitoring his every word."
"But court records released since then suggest that what Gonzales described as a "deadly plot" was virtually the pipe dream of a few men with almost no ability to pull it off on their own. The suspects have raised questions in court about the FBI informants' role in keeping the plan alive."
Once again, a trumped up charge of "terror plotting" is reduced to an FBI informant prompting some dupes into a bogus scheme.
