FBI Blasted for Saying It Works to Thwart Terrorist Plots After Whitmer Kidnapping Sting
"Protecting the United States from terrorist attacks is the #FBI’s top priority. We work closely with our partners to disrupt violent plots and keep our communities safe from harm. #NatSec," the special service wrote this Wednesday.
"Working in secret, they did more than just passively observe and report on the actions of the suspects. Instead, they had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. The extent of their involvement raises questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy without them," the outlet's investigation claimed.
"The Iraq War vet, for his part, became so deeply enmeshed in a Michigan militant group that he rose to become its second-in-command, encouraging members to collaborate with other potential suspects and paying for their transportation to meetings. He prodded the alleged mastermind of the kidnapping plot to advance his plan, then baited the trap that led to the arrest," the article explained.

This sounds so familiar when FBI was entrapping Muslims as part of America's War on Terror and starting each publicity stunt by declaring "public was never in danger". Off Course, public was never in danger, because it was FBI who produced, directed, and acted the drama.— Truth matters (@Justiceforrez) July 21, 2021
The fingerprints of the FBI were all over this Michigan/Whitmer kidnapping plot, just like the FBI created and drove so many of the first War on Terror plots they then boasted of breaking up. In this case, one of the FBI agents in the plot was just arrested for domestic violence: https://t.co/6WpZtukwTl— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) July 20, 2021
According to BuzzFeed, the lawyer for one of the defendants in the kidnapping case filed a motion last week that included texts from an FBI agent to a key informant, the Iraq War veteran, directing him to draw specific people into the conspiracy, which is reportedly a potential evidence of entrapment that the government "inadvertently disclosed".
