There’s a fine line between infiltration and entrapment, and the FBI crosses it all the time. From L. Reichard White at lewrockwell.com:
What’s a “Handschu Scam” and what, if anything, does it have to do with the alleged terrorist plot to kidnap Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, the latest fiasco in the U.S. “Justice” Department’s Julian Assange farce, and the January 6, 2021 D.C. riot, mega-hyped into an “insurrection” to satisfy the gullible?
When government agents infiltrate lawful political organizations, they’re under pressure to come back with information. And what government hearings have revealed time and time again is that they come back initially with no information, with information about lawful activities and then they’re under pressure to generate some business. And they try to entrap people and foment illegal activity. …and the people behind the plot to blow up anything [in the Handschu case] were all government agents. –ACLU’s Donna Lieberman
So how far will that “pressure to generate some business” make them go? Here’s a clue – – –
A 22-year-old Bangladeshi man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for attempting to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York City with a fake bomb as part of an elaborate FBI sting. Quazi Nafis pleaded guilty to terrorism charges in February. His case drew claims of government entrapment after the FBI supplied the inert explosives, the van used to carry them, the detonator and even the storage facility where an agent helped Nafis assemble the fake bomb.
