Trevor Aaronson: The Terror Factory
In his new book, The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI's Manufactured War on Terrorism, investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson analyzes 10 years of terrorism cases that were prosecuted in the United States after Sept. 11. By assembling a database of the cases and going through court records, he concluded that the FBI, which receives $3 billion per year for counterterrorism, is "the organization responsible for more terrorist plots over the last decade than any other."
As interesting as his book is, it only deals with the entrapment cases like the Toronto 18 or the recent Via Rail scandal. That isn’t what Operation Northwood was. That isn’t what Operation Gladio was. That isn’t what happened to the USS Liberty. We still need to open our eyes and examine false flag attacks because they are very real. Especially when they want to use them to take away our liberty.
Speaking of which, the AG claims Canada can’t account for $3.1 billion in anti-terror funding. Losing that much money is grand theft. I wonder how much of that money was spent on entrapment or is that recorded in the other budget.
Are We Catching Terrorists? Or Creating Them?
