Dr. Daniele Ganser, Historiker und Friedensforscher an der Universität Basel, wirft einen erschre­cken­den Blick auf die dunk­le Seite der „west­li­chen Wertegemeinschaft”.
Als 1980 das Oktoberfestattentat ver­übt wur­de, stand sofort die Einzeltäterschaft eines Neonazis der Wehrsportgruppe Hoffmann…

Was die alter­na­ti­ve Nachrichtenszene schon seit Jahren ver­sucht den Menschen zu zei­gen, ist nun anschei­nend auch bei den Massenmedien ange­kom­men:
FBI täuscht Terroranschläge selbst vor

Hier der zitier­te Originalwortlaut des New York times Artikels:

„Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.

THE United States has been nar­row­ly saved from let­hal ter­ro­rist plots in recent years — or so it has see­med. A would-be sui­ci­de bom­ber was inter­cep­ted on his way to the Capitol; a sche­me to bomb syn­ago­gues and shoot Stinger mis­si­les at mili­ta­ry air­craft was deve­lo­ped by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fan­ci­ful idea to fly explo­si­ve-laden model pla­nes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hat­ched in Massachusetts.

Clay Rodery
But all the­se dra­mas were faci­li­ta­ted by the F.B.I., who­se under­co­ver agents and infor­mers posed as ter­ro­rists offe­ring a dum­my mis­si­le, fake C-4 explo­si­ves, a dis­ar­med sui­ci­de vest and rudi­men­ta­ry trai­ning. Suspects naï­vely play­ed their parts until they were arrested.

When an Oregon col­le­ge stu­dent, Mohamed Osman Mohamud, thought of using a car bomb to attack a fes­ti­ve Christmas-tree lighting cere­mo­ny in Portland, the F.B.I. pro­vi­ded a van loa­ded with six 55-gal­lon drums of “inert mate­ri­al,” harm­less blas­ting caps, a deto­na­tor cord and a gal­lon of die­sel fuel to make the van smell flamm­a­ble. An under­co­ver F.B.I. agent even did the dri­ving, with Mr. Mohamud in the pas­sen­ger seat. To trig­ger the bomb the stu­dent pun­ched a num­ber into a cell­pho­ne and got no boom, only a bust.

This is legal, but is it legi­ti­ma­te? Without the F.B.I., would the cul­prits com­mit vio­lence on their own? Is cul­ti­vating poten­ti­al ter­ro­rists the best use of the man­power desi­gned to find the real ones? Judging by their offi­ci­al ans­wers, the F.B.I. and the Justice Department are sure of them­sel­ves — too sure, perhaps.

Carefully orches­tra­ted sting ope­ra­ti­ons usual­ly hold up in court. Defendants inva­ria­b­ly claim ent­rap­ment and almost always lose, becau­se the law requi­res that they show no pre­dis­po­si­ti­on to com­mit the crime, even when indu­ced by government agents. To unders­core their pre­dis­po­si­ti­on, many suspects are “war­ned about the serious­ness of their plots and given oppor­tu­nities to back out,” said Dean Boyd, a Justice Department spo­kes­man. But not always, recor­ded con­ver­sa­ti­ons show. Sometimes they are coaxed to con­ti­nue.

Undercover ope­ra­ti­ons, long prac­ticed by the F.B.I., have beco­me a main­stay of coun­ter­ter­ro­rism, and they have chan­ged in respon­se to the post-9/11 focus on pre­ven­ti­on. “Prior to 9/​11 it would be very unusu­al for the F.B.I. to pre­sent a crime oppor­tu­ni­ty that wasn’t in the scope of the activi­ties that a per­son was alre­ady invol­ved in,” said Mike German of the American Civil Liberties Union, a lawy­er and for­mer F.B.I. agent who infil­tra­ted white supre­macist groups. An alle­ged drug dea­ler would be set up to sell drugs to an under­co­ver agent, an arms traf­fi­cker to sell wea­pons. That still hap­pens rou­ti­nely, but less so in coun­ter­ter­ro­rism, and for good rea­son.

“There isn’t a busi­ness of ter­ro­rism in the United States, thank God,” a for­mer federal pro­se­cu­tor, David Raskin, exp­lai­ned.

“You’re not going to be able to go to a street cor­ner and find some­bo­dy who’s alre­ady blown some­thing up,” he said. Therefore, the usu­al goal is not “to find some­bo­dy who’s alre­ady enga­ged in ter­ro­rism but find some­bo­dy who would jump at the oppor­tu­ni­ty if a real ter­ro­rist show­ed up in town.”

And that’s the gray area. Who is sus­cep­ti­ble? Anyone who plays along with the agents, appar­ent­ly. Once the sna­re is set, law enforce­ment sees no choice. “Ignoring such thre­ats is not an opti­on,” Mr. Boyd argued, “given the pos­si­bi­li­ty that the suspect could act alo­ne at any time or find someo­ne else wil­ling to help him.”

Typically, the stings initi­al­ly tar­get suspects for pure speech — com­ments to an infor­mer out­side a mos­que, angry pos­tings on Web sites, e-mails with radi­cals over­se­as — then woo them into rela­ti­ons­hips with infor­mers, who are often con­vic­ted fel­ons working in exchan­ge for leni­en­cy, or with F.B.I. agents posing as mem­bers of Al Qaeda or other groups.

Some tar­gets have pre­vious invol­ve­ment in more than idle talk: for examp­le, Waad Ramadan Alwan, an Iraqi in Kentucky, who­se fin­ger­prints were found on an unex­plo­ded roadsi­de bomb near Bayji, Iraq, and Raja Khan of Chicago, who had sent funds to an Al Qaeda lea­der in Pakistan.

But others seem ambi­va­lent, incom­pe­tent and adrift, like hap­less wanna­bes loo­king for a cau­se that the infor­mer or under­co­ver agent skill­ful­ly helps them find. Take the Stinger mis­si­le defen­dant James Cromitie, a low-level drug dea­ler with a cri­mi­nal record that inclu­ded no vio­lence or hate crime, despi­te his rants against Jews. “He was sear­ching for ans­wers wit­hin his Islamic faith,” said his lawy­er, Clinton W. Calhoun III, who has appealed his con­vic­tion. “And this infor­mant, I think, twisted that search in a real­ly pret­ty awful way, sort of mis­di­rec­ted Cromitie in his search and tur­ned him towards vio­lence.”

THE infor­mer, Shahed Hussain, had been char­ged with fraud, but avo­ided pri­son and depor­ta­ti­on by working under­co­ver in ano­t­her inves­ti­ga­ti­on. He was being paid by the F.B.I. to pose as a wealt­hy Pakistani with ties to Jaish-e-Mohammed, a ter­ro­rist group that Mr. Cromitie appar­ent­ly had never heard of befo­re they met by chan­ce in the par­king lot of a mos­que.

“Brother, did you ever try to do any­thing for the cau­se of Islam?” Mr. Hussain asked at one point.

“O.K., bro­ther,” Mr. Cromitie replied wari­ly, “whe­re you going with this, bro­ther?”

Two days later, the infor­mer told him, “Allah has more work for you to do,” and added, “Revelation is going to come in your dreams that you have to do this thing, O.K.?” About 15 minu­tes later, Mr. Hussain pro­po­sed the idea of using mis­si­les, say­ing he could get them in a con­tai­ner from China. Mr. Cromitie laug­hed.

Reading hund­reds of pages of tran­scripts of the recor­ded con­ver­sa­ti­ons is like loo­king at the ink­blots of a Rorschach test. Patterns of wil­ling­ness and hesi­ta­ti­on over­lap and mer­ge. “I don’t want anyo­ne to get hurt,” Mr. Cromitie said, and then exp­lai­ned that he meant women and child­ren. “I don’t care if it’s a who­le syn­ago­gue of men.” It took 11 mon­ths of mean­de­ring dis­cus­sion and a pro­mi­se of $250,000 to lead him, with three co-con­spi­ra­tors he recrui­ted, to plant fake bombs at two Riverdale syn­ago­gues.

“Only the government could have made a ‘ter­ro­rist’ out of Mr. Cromitie, who­se buf­foo­ne­ry is posi­tively Shakespearean in its scope,” said Judge Colleen McMahon, sen­ten­cing him to 25 years. She bran­ded it a “fan­ta­sy ter­ror ope­ra­ti­on” but cal­led his attempt “bey­ond despi­ca­ble” and rejec­ted his claim of ent­rap­ment.

The judge’s state­ment was unusu­al, but Mr. Cromitie’s cha­rac­te­ris­tics were not. His incom­pe­tence and ambi­v­a­lence could be found among other aspi­ring ter­ro­rists who­se gran­dio­se plans were nur­tu­red by law enforce­ment. They inclu­ded men who wan­ted to attack fuel lines at Kennedy International Airport; des­troy the Sears Tower (now Willis Tower) in Chicago; car­ry out a sui­ci­de bom­bing near Tampa Bay, Fla., and bomb sub­ways in New York and Washington. Of the 22 most frigh­ten­ing plans for attacks sin­ce 9/​11 on American soil, 14 were deve­lo­ped in sting ope­ra­ti­ons.

Another New York City sub­way plot, which recent­ly went to tri­al, nee­ded no help from government. Nor did a bom­bing attempt in Times Square, the abor­ti­ve under­we­ar bom­bing in a jet­li­ner over Detroit, a plan­ned attack on Fort Dix, N.J., and several smal­ler efforts. Some thre­ats are real, others less so. In ter­ro­rism, it’s not easy to tell the dif­fe­rence.
