War on Terror: Arresting Real Terrorists or Entrapment?
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Every few months it seems the FBI arrests persons or people suspected of plotting terrorist acts in the US. How many of those are truly terrorists-- and how many of them would not be able to pull off the proposed terrorist act- unless they had help from government informants? We'll talk about the issue in a few minutes here on Radioactivity. But first three listener comments about last Friday's program on which we talked about the history of the Second Amendment. Here's what three listeners had to say.
Our next guest has spent years investigating the FBI's counter terrorism program. He says the FBI has built a network of more than 15,000 informants-- some of whom have made lots of money---The primary purpose of the network is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create phony terrorist plots-- so the bureau can claim victory in the War on Terror. Our guest is investigative reporter Trevor Aaronson and his book is Terror Factory: Inside the FBI's Manufactured War on Terror (IG Publishing). FMIcomments powered by Disqus
