FBI Hires Spies to Fake Terror Plots

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reportedly giving money and weapons to poor criminals to carry out terrorist attacks on US soil on behalf of Muslim groups.

The Guardian reported that the terrorist plots "came from the FBI, and an informant paid to pose as a terrorist mastermind paying big bucks for help in carrying out an attack."

Drug dealer David Williams was one of the victims of the FBI plot. In May 2009, he was rearrested and handed a 25-year jail sentence.

Williams and three others were convicted of an Islamic terrorist plot to blow up Jewish synagogues and shoot down military jets with missiles.

Alicia McWilliams, David's aunt, expressed disbelief that the US government had paid her nephew to be a terrorist and then jailed him for it.

"I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone," she told The Guardian.

According to the report, lawyers for the case have launched an appeal that will be held early next year. Advocates hope the case offers the best chance of exposing the issue of FBI "entrapment" in terror cases.

"The target, the motive, the ideology and the plot were all led by the FBI," said Karen Greenberg, a law professor at Fordham University in New York, who specializes in studying new FBI tactics.
