So it seems the FBI has form for entrapping people and in the process actively aiding and facilitating terrorism in the US. This always seems to lead to bigger budgets and more hands off oversight. That is the most generous interpretation of what happened. But I believe it was the FBI who also put a thumb on the scale for Trump back in 2016 too so…
I am thinking here of how the Central Intelligence Agency made up Havana Syndrome and paid journalists to pretend it was real, which meant Congress authorised the Havana Syndrome medical care thing for agents and they got a bigger budget to protect against HS, and then once they had the cash the CIA turned around and said oh, wait, Havana Syndrome is fake. We are keeping the money however. Hehe, very good hustling.
Havana Syndrome was such a lazy and blatant hustle that it begged the question why even bother? Since JFK elected officials have known what the score is with the intelligence sphere. Just go up to them and say hey we want better healthcare and larger budgets. No you may not know the reason why.
I like the idea of getting wacky with it though, and then your fake illness causes mass hysteria in the rank and file so they start reporting symptoms. I would be pretty pleased with myself if I got people to buy in that much.
I am still processing that a major western parliament gave a standing ovation to a man who fought against the allies and described his time doing so as “the happiest years of my life”. I have seen so many leftist goofballs in the last couple of days casually advocating double genocide theory by way of defending this horror, sucking their own balls over how objective and nuanced they are about this story. Appalling. The Spider Network is real and it is completing a long march through the institutions.
