Here’s What The FBI Was Doing Instead Of Catching The Orlando Shooter

Tyler Durden's picture

Via TheAntiMedia.org,

After the most recent mass shooting in Orlando, Florida — the worst in U.S. history — one might ask how the FBI was able to investigate the perpetrator, twice, without deciding to take any further action. This question is further confounded by the fact the perpetrator was, according to his wife, an abusive, unstable man suffering from bipolar disorder.

A more appropriate question would be: what is the role of the FBI in counter-terror operations? How were they not able to prevent this incident, despite “preventing” hundreds of high profile incidents prior to this?

Out of the 508 terrorism-related cases since September 11, 2001, more often than not, the FBI has had a hand in creating the very terrorist threat they have claimed to be protecting us from. Two-hundred and forty-three of these cases involved an FBI informant. In many instances, the targets of these operations, who are later accused of plotting attacks, are not only almost always Muslim, but they are also often suffering from a mental illness, such as schizophrenia. Moreover, the targets are also vulnerable and easily susceptible to bribery as they are desperate for money – so desperate, it seems, they will help put their own friends behind bars.

This can be seen most clearly in the Newburgh Four case, which saw a combination of mental illness and an urgent need for money. One of the “Four,” James Cromitie, was a former drug addict who repeatedly tried to back out, saying “I don’t want anyone to get hurt.” In the words of a U.S. Court Judge, “only the government could have made a “terrorist” out of Mr. Cromitie.

Another defendant in the Newburgh case, Laguerre Payan, suffered from schizophrenia to the extent he kept bottles of urine in his apartment. David Williams, another of the four, had a brother who needed a liver transplant, and he was prepared to do almost anything for the money to pay for it.

The FBI chooses the most vulnerable members of society and then coaxes a relationship between the target and an “informant,” who helps instigate the terrorist activity. There is, generally speaking, no evidence the targets would have engaged in such activity had it not been for the FBI.

The case of Rezwan Ferdaus involved a man who suffered from severe depression and seizures and had to wear adult diapers for lack of bladder control. An FBI agent told the target’s own father Ferdaus was “obviously” mentally ill. Yet Ferdaus became a  target of these FBI operations: he had plans to carry out an attack on a massive scale on Capitol Hill, which the FBI could then “save” the public from — relishing in all their glory.

However, prior to this engagement with the FBI, there was, again, no evidence Ferdaus would have ever engaged in any criminal or terrorist activity. Ferdaus’ attorney argued he had repeatedly tried to back out of this activity.

In another case, this time linked to an individual reportedly inspired by the Boston bombing, it was the target’s own father who alerted the authorities of his son’s behavior; his son had created a Facebook page expressing his support for ISIS. He, too, had a long history of mental illness. The FBI evidently saw this as a great opportunity to advance their agenda and provided him with two rifles and a handgun — despite the fact he had previously expressed a desire to fight for ISIS.

Informants are also vulnerable targets of these FBI operations and usually, do the “dirty work” of the FBI in exchange for softer punishment in their own previous prosecutions. In addition, they often do it for money — or a combination of the two. An FBI informant can earn approximately $100,000 or more for a single case.

The culmination of the extent of the FBI’s interference can be seen most clearly in the infamous case of Sami Osmakac. The FBI provided the weapons he used in his propaganda videos, paid the informant who instigated his behavior, provided and assembled the car bomb he was supposedly going to detonate, and even paid his transport costs to get him exactly where the FBI wanted him to go.

This is a man who had no links to any terrorist groups, had no weapons, and could barely afford a new car battery for his 1994 Honda Accord. The FBI squad supervisor, Richard Worms, referred to Osmakac as a “retarded fool” who didn’t have a “pot to piss in.”

Osmakac’s own family stated he had become paranoid, delusional, and pale, and that he would sleep on the floor, complaining about nightmares in which he was burning in hell.

He was later diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder by a court-appointed psychologist.

If these people need help, why can’t the authorities provide it to them? Why prey on them, further radicalize them, and provide them with supplies and weaponry that put the wider public at risk — only to lock them away for decades for a crime they would not have otherwise committed?

The answer is simple. In the words of former FBI Assistant Director, Thomas Fuentes:

“If you’re submitting budget proposals for a law enforcement agency, for an intelligence agency, you’re not going to submit the proposal that ‘We won the war on terror and everything’s great,’ cuz the first thing that’s gonna happen is your budget’s gonna be cut in half. You know, it’s my opposite of Jesse Jackson’s ‘Keep Hope Alive’—it’s ‘Keep Fear Alive.’ Keep it alive.”

And these are just the ones they admit to.

Equally as important, it doesn't count the involvement of the CIA, NSA (they have an active 'intelligence' division) DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and various other alphabet gvt (and shadow gvt) agencies.

There is very little 'organic' domestic 'terrorism' in the US. At least not yet.

I know why we have state and local militias and the United States Post Office, but will any of you "Constitutional conservatives" please remind me why we have a FEDERAL Burueau of Investigation, (not to mention FEDERAL Reserve Banks and FEDERAL Income Tax).

NidStyles's picture

Why does the Federal Reserve has it's own police force? That's what I want to know. If they are a private institution, why is that they have a police force with arrest capability and investigation powers?

 

Is it because the Federal Reserve is actually an occupying force?

Why does the USPS have its own bureau of investigation?

occasionally collectible pistols.  or so i've heard.  sorry about that.

 

the federal reserve needs a police force to arrest those in the financial industry who would defraud customers and generally use the powerful force of money creation by private banks for ill.

 

don't we all know this?

Anyone that thinks the fed is merely a private banking cabal is on layer 2 or 3 of one big ass onion.

Because the progressive criminal usurpers infesting the FEDGOV created it? It damn sure was not created or sanctioned by true constitutional conservatives, was it?

Duh.

Dude you got the progressive stupid kinda bad, don't you?

Glad someone picked this up. Seddique Mateen, the shooter's father recently visited (last month) the State Dept., according to reliable sources ostensibly to run as president of Afghanistan. For those with memory rentention problems, this is the same State Dept run by the neocon-zionists, foremost Victoria Nuland, who are responsible for black ops and coups in Ukraine and the ME.

The ISIS link is not as tenuous as an intelligent obeserver may think when one considers that ISIS is a CIA construct formed with the cooperation of the Saudi Wahabi nutjobs to oust Assad in Syria. NATO's Turkey still openly supports ISIS today on their borders with Syria. Even msm articles (UK's Telegraph for example) wrote about CIA terrorist training camps in Jordan back in 2013 when the narrative was solely on killing Assad and destroying Syria (For the benefit of the Qatari pipeline project and Israel's land grab). It may seem convoluted but when one starts with the premise that PNAC was implemented with 9/11, then the motivations of this complex never-ending warfare with the same actors playing different roles become clearer.

Seems kind of out-of-controllish ... although I suspect that:

A. they are believe that they are the "good guys" (even when using evil to combat supposed evil ... how does that work?)
B. They seemingly need to continually create reasons for their existence. If there is no threat, then they need to create one ... otherwise there is no justification for them.

So, we have this self-perpetuating seemingly evil, but self-righteous group of entities and people creating the reasons for their own existence ... Momma!

It would help if ZH would stop referring to this as "the worst mass shooting in U.S. History" as that distinction is currently held by the United States Government in multiple mass shootings of American Indians. It only serves to let the bastards off the hook and adds to the big lie that it is and they fucking need to own it.

hedgeless_horseman's picture

Where is the list?

Is Kent State on it?

So you disagree? What's the point of your post other than to continue the lie or did your dog eat your mouse?

jeff montanye's picture

how do you distinguish the indian killings by, generally, the u.s. army from the killing of the confederates in the "civil war"?  both of these kind of look like wars to me.  yes many unarmed innocents were killed in both (many by disease) but when absolutely none of the victims are shooting back and the shooters don't wear army uniforms, i think you've got a different phenomenon.

Really? so when you are being mass murdered its not mass murder is you shoot back to protect your life, home and family. You are straining at a gnat after having swallowed the camel

Public education has served you well.

been watching CBS as background noise this morning.  They trotted out the FBI official that said we need more gun control, then they showed the interview of the surgeons that said ho bad a .223 bullet wound was (compared to what, a police .40 cal round?).  The FBI said we need more "understanding" of Muslims.  In other words, expect more of your rights to go away, as the FBI set up more sting operations.

Somehow they will  tie a white Christian with a Confederate flag sticker on his car to the Orlando shooting.

jeff montanye's picture

they might but i'll hazard they won't tie a zionist with a hillary sticker on his car to it.

They are already trying to label him a domestic being that he was second generation.  They are hammering this combo angle about mental health and hate speech.  "If you say bad things on the internet you could be labeled mentally ill and disarmed, so you better silence yourselves and allow the complete takeover by Satan to happen peacefully."

Through this pattern of setting up mental cases one can easily see where there would be a need for agents to be carrying out most of the carnage, assuming there really are fatalities.

Dont forget the Waco seige which killed 76 innocent people....

jeff montanye's picture

these atrocities and others like them (kent state, ruby ridge, jackson state) must not be forgotten or confused with things like orlando.  the former are unambiguous killings of citizens by the government.  no question, end of story.

 

orlando needs further investigation but the culpability of the u.s. government in, at a minimum, the immigration of the mateens from afghanistan in the early '80's as a reaction to operation cyclone (cia/mossad/isi/al qaeda) as well as omar's employment in the british (second eye) blackwater seems a promising start.

 

then there are things like the u.s.s. liberty and 9-11 where what seemed at first to be tragic mistakes of one kind or another resolve into deeply evil conscious plots.

Even more so due to that security company he worked for dumping "non Mexican" "immigrants" into the Phoenix area and bypassing our border security withing days of this incident.  This late in the game it's pretty clear what is going on here... absolutely crystal clear.  They want our guns and our engineering our deaths, or fake deaths, in order to do so.  No question about that at this point.  The angle they will hit to open pandora's box will be "we have to regulate the mentally ill owning weapons".  After all who could argue with that?  Civil conflict is coming.

You remind me of someone “who sets down safe of an evening and writes about how cruel the poor Indian was being treated out west. They never come upon the body of a friend who had been staked out on an ant hill or had a fire built on his stomach, nor had they stood off a charge of Indians…

“Indian forever killed Indian long before the coming of the white man…”--  Louis L’Amour

For instance, take the Sioux. They were skilled at high-speed mounted warfare and were greatly feared by other tribes. They were constantly moving west, gaining more and more land and displacing other Indian tribes.

As L’Amour says, “Indian ways weren’t our ways, and a lot of virtues they were given credit for by white men were only ideas in a white man’s head, and no Indian would consider them virtues. Mercy rarely had any part in the make-up of Indians. Indians did not have the Christian conception against the taking of life….

“If you were a stranger you were an enemy…Indians were fighting men. Fighting was their greatest sport and occupation….the Indian saved all his respect for fighting men. And an Indian would count the scalp of a woman or child as well as a man’s….

“The Indian warrior would have been ashamed of all the milk-sop talk about the poor Indian. He was strong, he was proud, and he was able to handle his own problems.”

The Indians were defeated by the traders; they made him want things he could not produce himself – like rifles and ammunition.

Americans will not be defeated by the Muslims; those who will defeat them already are in power—and it’s not the Muslims.

Ex-FBI "profiler" on a morning talk show...talked and talked...NEVER mentioned religion as a factor.

Q: "How can he kill so coldly".

FBI Answer: "Part of it is dehumanizing the victim".

 

Doesn't Islam teach men to "dehumanize" women? How much of a leap is it from "dehumanizing" women to "dehumanizing" gays to "dehumanizing" non-Muslims?

Why do Christians blow up abortion clinics? RELIGION gives them the OK.

Why do MUSLIMS abuse women and kill gays? RELIGION gives them the OK.

How in the fuck can you "profile" a person and not consider their religion?

jeff montanye's picture

well just maybe working for g4s for years in "some" capacity might steel one to mass killing as well.  probably helped his proficiency.

 

speaking of profiling based on religion, wouldn't it seem reasonable to limit policy positions in the u.s. government, particularly those involved in defense and national security, to people who are citizens of just the u.s.?  particularly if the country of second citizenship involved has already spied on and attacked/killed the u.s. military (jonathan pollard, u.s.s. liberty)?

Now that they know the incentive for FBI enticing/recruiting unstable youths to commit crimes, you would think they would change the system. Let's see.

So Mrs Clinton believes this guy should not have been able to purchase a gun because he was under investigation by the FBI?  Then how in hell can she be able to run for President while under investigation by the FBI?

fleur de lis's picture

Is this the same FBI that is investigating Mrs. Clinton?
She can laugh at them all from now on no matter what they find.
Even if they indict her (they won't/can't) she can pound on the table laughing through the whole investigation and it will only amount to another massive waste of taxes.
She's ready for her close-up.
Now we're stuck listening to that wild screaming laugh thing of hers on TV under oath in front of Congress and all the other good for nothing .gov money sponges.
Thank you FBI.
