What If Spartacus Had A Stinger Missile?

Once again, we have to turn to Senator Roark;

Power comes from lying ... Lying big and getting the whole damn world to play along with you ... Once you got everybody agreeing with what they know in their hearts ain't true, you get them by the balls

Senator Roark, from “Sin City - That Yellow Bastard

A flourishing H/T today, to Larisa Alexandrovna ("The Department of Pre-Crime is now open..."), pointing to, despite the change to a new administration, the continuation of the Fatherland Follies;

FBI Blows It: Supposed Terror Plot Against NY Synagogues Is Bogus

"So a creepy thug buttonholes people at a mosque, foaming at the mouth about violence and jihad? This is law enforcement? Just imagine if someone did this at a local church, or some synagogue. And the imam says the people "believed he was a government agent."

Preying on these losers, none of whom were apparently actual Muslims, the "confidential informant" orchestrated the acquisition of a disabled Stinger missile to shoot down military planes and cooked up a wild scheme about attacking a Jewish center in the Bronx."

Even the Sunday Times in London is picking up on it;

FBI ‘lured dimwits’ into terror plot

“One question [about the synagogue case] that has to be answered is: did the informant go in and enlist people who were otherwise not considering trouble ?” said Kevin Luibrand, who represented a Muslim businessman caught up in another FBI sting three years ago. “Did the government induce someone to commit a crime?”

The other question that US security experts were debating was how much had been achieved by assigning more than 100 agents to a year-long investigation of three petty criminals and a mentally ill Haitian immigrant, none of whom had any connection with any known terrorist group. “They were all unsophisticated dimwits,” said Kindlon.


This unlikely crew was said to have planned to use remotely detonated C4 explosives to bomb synagogues in the New York suburb of Riverdale; they then intended to drive north to a National Guard base near Newburgh to shoot down military aircraft with a Stinger missile supplied by a man they believed was working with Jaish-e-Mohammed, a Pakistan-based terrorist group.

That man is now understood to have been Shahed Hussain, a former New York state motel owner who became an FBI informant in 2002 to avoid deportation to Pakistan after being arrested on fraud charges. Hussain appears to have met Cromitie at a Newburgh mosque where the plot to bomb Jewish targets was hatched.


The FBI is known to have infiltrated mosques, and many anti-terrorist experts believe a mosque is the last place a serious Islamic terrorist would plot an attack. “Anyone with any smarts knew to stay away from [Hussain],” said Muhammad. Yet nobody will accuse Cromitie and his cohorts of being smart.

Admittedly, this wasn't as fun as seeing Former Crony General John Ashcroft baying at the moon, from Moscow, no less, about the terror-plot-de-jour that was part of the package of lies The Commander Guy used to sell the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

You see, there's machinery in place to keep cranking this stuff out.

The unwritten headline here is, we can't prosecute The Bush Grindhouse for torture, and their War Crimes, there's rag-tag, and mentally-challenged, terrorists out there, working overtime, to get us.

In fact there were no crimes at all, just sound, good ol' USA policy, to keep us safe, an umbrella of compassionate humanity, to shield us from those pending mushroom clouds, and those uranium-enriching aluminum tubes.

If we close Gitmo, the location we are now "preventively detaining" people, where are we going to put these rag-tag, and mentally-challenged, terrorists?

Where would Spartacus put them?
