So you are a approached by a person who claims that he wants you to help him plant a bomb, and even provides the bomb. Then it turns out that the person is, in fact, an FBI agent. How is that not entrapment? Yet, we see that play out time and time again: The FBI sets up a terror attack, and then stops it in the nick of time.
It happened this week in Wichita.
It happened last November in Oregon.
It happened last September in Chicago.
This doesn't impress me. You cannot tell me that the FBI is so effective that they are catching every single person who wants to build a bomb. The sad truth is that these wanna be terrorists are losers who couldn't make a bomb, and without FBI assistance, this is as far as things would go.
This is pure grandstanding on the part of the FBI.
This makes me wonder:
- Is it possible that the Oklahoma City bombing was, as rumored, a failed FBI sting, where a foolish agent provided a real bomb to McVeigh? I remember seeing a report about that on a news program at the time, but I cannot find it any longer.
- It also makes me wonder how come there are mass shootings galore whenever there are pushes for more gun control, but not when the issue seems dead.
Are we seeing manufactured crises that are designed to increase the authority and budgets of various agencies of the government? I would dismiss this as paranoia, except we know that the FBI is at least ginning up fake bombers.
