I don’t believe ’em for a second

Yeah, yeah, big scary terrorist plot.

Every time this happens, it turns out that the whole damn thing was either made up by the state out of thin air, the idea to do something violent came from the undercover FBI informant or the “truth” was tortured out of the guy.

There’s no al Qaeda in America. As always, the biggest threat to our lives and liberties is the national government of the United States. Now you know how the rest of the world feels.

Partial list of bogus domestic terrorism plots “busted” by the Federal Cops since 9/11 (all the false warnings are too numerous to mention.):

  • Lackawanna Six
  • Detroit
  • Virginia Paintball guys
  • The tortured Abu Ali
  • Jose Padilla
  • Lodi, California
  • Miami plot against the Sears Tower
  • New York subway tunnels
  • New York subway station
  • “Liquid explosives” plot on UK to US flights
  • Ft. Dix Six

But, I’m so sure we can believe them when they tell us to be frightened about a plot at JFK!

What, just because there has not been a single case where they have actually busted domestic terrorists since 9/11?! Surely they’re not lying this time!

Someday there will be real terrorists and Americans will die because the FBI is screwing around with a bunch of nonsense. Again.
