Although it is not available online, the latest issue of Rolling Stone also has an article chronicling the FBI sting of Occupy Cleveland. More specifically, how a criminal hired by the feds found a handful of hapless young guys, plied them with pot and alcohol, gave them money, urged them to more radical action, supplied them with explosives, cajoled them into using them, and then busted them.
This fits the profile of most of the “terrorist plots” since 9/11, except until now it had been Muslim knuckleheads that the agent provocateurs had prodded into action.
Yes, of course they should never have gone along with it, but it is highly unlikely that they would have ever acted if the FBI had not provoked them.
All of this keeps the citizenry scared and grateful that Our Heros are keeping us safe. Lord have mercy.
