At this point I wish I could laugh at the absurdly obvious nature of the federal government’s involvement in the manufacture of domestic terrorism, but unfortunately it is far too serious a matter.
For those who think the most recent case of 21-year-old Bangladeshi national Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) major role in said case is something of a fluke, think again.
Indeed, the FBI’s business is manufacturing terrorism of all kinds and breaking the law in the process. The two most recent cases I personally covered occurred in February of this year and then in May of this year as well. Let’s not forget that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) also thwarted their own little manufactured terror plot in May of this year as well.
The most recent case involving Nafis has not bucked the trend in the slightest. According to USA Today‘s latest update at the time of writing this story, Nafis “allegedly met with an undercover FBI agent who provided him with inert explosives.”
Once again, we learn that the “terrorist” actually never was in contact with any real terrorists (other than those hiding behind the safety of a badge) and was never even able to procure real explosives.
Instead, as is the case with so many other cases of the government thwarting their own plots, we learn that Nafis actually would never have done anything if it were not for the help of the FBI.
The FBI’s narrative asserts that Nafis met the undercover FBI agent at a warehouse in the New York metro region where he “made the bomb, consisting of inert explosives, then assembled the detonator and armed the device in the van as the undercover agent drove to the Fed.”
In other words, as has been the case far too many times now, Nafis never was actually in possession of explosives and was never actually even able to get in contact with anyone but an undercover FBI agent posing as a terrorist.
For those who still believe that there is some giant horde of bloodthirsty terrorists hiding in American cities waiting to attack, the truths revealed by this latest manufactured terror plot will likely prove problematic.
Like the case of the 82-year-old nun who was able to waltz onto the “Fort Knox of Uranium,” a supposedly highly secure nuclear facility, earlier this year, this case paints a strange picture of the alleged terrorist threat.
If terrorists were indeed scattered around the United States waiting to attack as our government would like us to believe, why wasn’t Nafis able to come in contact with a single one?
Similarly, if a nun and two others can walk onto a nuclear facility, set off alarms, and still remain undetected for an extended period of time, why hasn’t a terrorist or group of terrorists already done the same?
Indeed, Nafis was never actually a threat to anyone as revealed by NBC New York in reporting, “Law enforcement officials stress that the plot was a sting operation monitored by the FBI and NYPD and the public was never at risk. The materials he believed were explosives had been rendered inoperable, officials said.”
This is the same old story we see repeated ad infinitum in the so-called war on terror.
As U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch from the Eastern District of New York stated,
He thought he was directing confederates and fellow believers. At every turn, he was wrong, and his extensive efforts to strike at the heart of the nation’s financial system were foiled by effective law enforcement.In reality he was never even in contact with “confederates and fellow believers” but instead like so many other recent cases Nafis was actually just dealing with the U.S. government the entire time.
“Vigilance is our watchword now and into the foreseeable future,” stated Paul J. Browne, the deputy commissioner of the New York City Police Department. “That’s why we have over 1,000 police officers assigned to counter-terrorism duties every day, and why we built the Domain Awareness System. I want to commend the NYPD detectives and FBI agents of the Joint Terrorist Task Force for the work they did in the case and in other ways every day to help New York City safe from terrorists.”
One must wonder why he didn’t mention the NYPD’s offices around the globe in locales as seemingly unrelated to New York City as Kfar Saba, Israel.
According to unnamed federal authorities, “The plot came to light as an FBI undercover agent posed as an al-Qaeda facilitator.”
Yet again we learn that the terror plot was actually facilitated by an FBI agent pretending to be al Qaeda. This has become so common one cannot help but wonder if there is a single alleged member of al Qaeda who isn’t an agent or asset of at least one U.S. government entity.
This is just reinforced by reports like that from CNN which states, “The Bangladeshi national allegedly came to the United States in January to carry out a terror attack on U.S. soil and said he had overseas connections to al-Qaeda.”
“As he attempted to recruit others to join his cell, he tried to recruit someone who turned out to be an FBI source,” the criminal complaint reportedly says according to CNN.
This type of reporting just makes it infinitely more clear what is actually going on here. The truth is that either Nafis was lying in claiming overseas connections to al Qaeda or he indeed had such connections, he just didn’t know that the supposed al Qaeda terrorists were actually U.S. government agents.
One would assume if he actually had connections to the “real” al Qaeda he would be able to procure even a tiny bit of real explosives or at least be able to tell the difference between the real deal and inert explosives.
One would also assume that if he actually had connections to the “real” al Qaeda he wouldn’t be blindly recruiting anyone and everyone including an FBI agent posing as an al Qaeda facilitator. Would he really not be in contact with a single al Qaeda operative if he actually did have connections with such a group?
It seems painfully obvious that as the details emerge the case just becomes even more clearly one of FBI-sponsored manufactured terrorism. It will be interesting to see how this is spun, especially after the damaging Senate report which revealed just how laughable the so-called FusionCenters really are in carrying out their public mission of fighting terrorism.
It will also be quite fascinating to see if and how this is spun by Obama and Romney as well as the rest of the federal government that relies on a climate of fear and paranoia to exert control.
While it the fact that this plot was being handled by the U.S. government from the start, is hardly arguable, one can reasonably expect that it will be turned into yet another reason for more spending, less rights and greater government control.
