the newburgh sting: terrorists or targets?


wikipedia |  The Newburgh Sting (2014) is a documentary film about the Federal Bureau of Investigation's sting operation on four Muslim men involved in the 2009 Bronx terrorism plot. Beginning in 2008, an FBI informant, Shaheed Hussain, recorded hours of conversations with the men who were ultimately arrested and convicted of planting three non-functional bombs next to two synagogues in Riverdale, Bronx and for planning to use Stinger missiles to shoot down United States military cargo planes near Newburgh, New York. The point of view of the documentary is that it was later brought to light that the plot with the four men who were coaxed into participating was created by the FBI. The men argue that this was a case of entrapment. In April, 2014, the film was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival.

So why this post, today?

Same reason as the post on the Equation Group last week and the revelations concerning a purportedly Russian "hacker ring" alleged to have stolen a $Billion from banks, both outed by Russian AV company Kaspersky.

Same reason as for addressing Director Comey's remarks about law enforcement, the community, and extremism.

Race to the bottom, and Walker already at the finish line.

Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it? That's what it is to be a slave...,

Look at Walker's role model, that sniveling coward, Ronald Reagan. Do you suppose Walker will cut and run the way Reagan did in Beirut?

Put it into context http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Iraq_War

Iran dba Islamic Jihad doing business in Syria (there is no such thing as Lebanon, most any sane "Lebanese" will tell you they're Syrians) sent a clear message to outside interlopers within its tribal bounds http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Beirut_barracks_bombing

The attack combined power, sophistication, and bushido. There's no shame in not picking a fight with Iran on its extended home grounds. That's why you don't see the Hon.Bro.Preznit tryna play John Wayne dress-up. If neither Bush I or Dubya cared to pick a fight with Iran, outside of Dubya's rhetorical "Axis of Evil" talk, I wouldn't plan on little Scotty the Scottmeister doing much more than running his mouth for the rubes playing make believe.
