I’m not one for conspiracy theories …
But, there is something weird going on.
As you’re about to see, there are some very suspicious things going on with the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooting incident.
Ft. Lauderdale Gunman Told FBI “the government controlled his mind and forced him to watch ISIS videos”
Estaban Santiago, the 26-year-old airline passenger accused of shooting up a baggage claim area at the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood airport visited the FBI Anchorage field office and told officers
“… the government controlled his mind and forced him to watch ISIS videos“.
Keep in mind, this is not just being reported on so-called “fake news” websites (according to the mainstream media, any media/news source that is not influenced by the political regime in Washington is a “fake news” site). This is all over mainstream media news too.
In fact, I took a screenshot of the CNN story that I first read this on, just in case it later gets removed (obviously emphasis of red box and arrow are mine):
In other words, this gunman — the father of a baby in September — is claiming a US Intelligence agency was controlling his mind and forcing him to watch Islamic State videos.
Although nobody is claiming this is Islamic Terrorism yet, the following picture shows him doing what appears to be the Islamic State salute:
This is important. From Foreign Affairs (emphasis mine):
“When ISIS militants hold up a single index finger on their right hands, they are alluding to the tawhid, the belief in the oneness of God and a key component of the Muslim religion. The tawhid comprises the first half of the shahada, which is an affirmation of faith, one of the five pillars of Islam, and a component of daily prayers: “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
It is no surprise, then, that the shahada features prominently in ISIS’ public image. The group’s black flag bears the vow’s words in white Arabic script (as does Hamas’ and even Saudi Arabia’s). And Muslims have long associated a single index finger with the shahada in a variety of contexts, ranging from daily prayers to conversions.
But for ISIS, the symbol is more sinister than a mere declaration of monotheistic beliefs. As Salafi jihadists, members of the group adhere to a fundamentalist interpretation of tawhid that rejects non-fundamentalist regimes as idolatrous. In other words, the concept of tawhid is central to ISIS’ violent and uncompromising posture toward its opponents, both in the Middle East and in the West.
When ISIS militants display the sign, to one another or to a photographer, they are actively reaffirming their dedication to that ideology, whose underlying principle demands the destruction of the West. If rank-and-file soldiers are aware of the precise theological implications of their sign — and it would be no surprise if they are — that would be a sobering comment on their deep-seated opposition to pluralism.
The gesture is equally important for what it means to Westerners, most of whom cannot read Arabic. By raising their index fingers, militants send an easy-to-understand message of the group’s goals of theological supremacy and military hegemony. When potential ISIS recruits in London, New York, or Sydney see the symbol on Twitter, they can grasp the scale of ISIS’ ambitions and its underlying aims. At some visceral level, less-radicalized viewers understand that it means dominance.”
He certainly seems to be embracing Islam.
It’s a Fact That The FBI Has Been Funding, Provoking, And Helping “Create” Terror Plots Since 9/11
Again, I’m not one for conspiracies.
That’s why the truth is so interesting here.
It’s a well-documented fact that the FBI uses a portion of its budget to hire informants. They also reach out to people and — posing as terrorists — offer help, assistance, guidance, and even weapons & money for terrorist plots.
Then they “bust” those guys that they basically “setup”.
Again, this is not conspiracy theory or even conjecture here, this is documented. The TED Talk below explains the situation rather effectively:
In 2012, Petra Bartosiewicz in The Nation reviewed the post-9/11 body of terrorism cases and concluded:
Nearly every major post-9/11 terrorism-related prosecution has involved a sting operation, at the center of which is a government informant. In these cases, the informants — who work for money or are seeking leniency on criminal charges of their own — have crossed the line from merely observing potential criminal behavior to encouraging and assisting people to participate in plots that are largely scripted by the FBI itself. Under the FBI’s guiding hand, the informants provide the weapons, suggest the targets and even initiate the inflammatory political rhetoric that later elevates the charges to the level of terrorism.
It appears to be easier to manufacture terrorist plots than to find ones in actual progress. To quote FBI assistant director Thomas Fuentes:
“If you’re submitting budget proposals for a law enforcement agency, for an intelligence agency, you’re not going to submit the proposal that “We won the war on terror and everything’s great,” cuz the first thing that’s gonna happen is your budget’s gonna be cut in half. You know, it’s my opposite of Jesse Jackson’s ‘Keep Hope Alive’—it’s ‘Keep Fear Alive.’ Keep it alive.”
Omar Matteen, the Orlando Nightclub shooter was also approached by FBI informants and they tried to get him to do some terrorist attacks. The FBI said he did not take the “bait”. They closed their investigation on him. He later shot up the Orlando Gay Nightclub – murdering 49 people.
It Makes You Wonder … How Many of These Terror Attacks Are the Ones The FBI Instigated But Failed To Stop?
I’m not saying there is some vast “illuminati” conspiracy here.
Not at all.
I am saying that, it is actual fact the FBI uses provokes and attempts to “help” suspected domestic terrorists to commit terrorist attacks … so they can later stop the attack and arrest them.
(Whether this works or not, I don’t have the knowledge or experience to judge. But we do know it’s happening.)
What I’m wondering is …
How many of these terrorist attacks were inspired, planned, and encouraged by the FBI at some point. The — often mentally unstable — suspect backed out. Then later — after he was no longer a subject of the FBI’s interest — thought to himself, “you know, that wasn’t that bad of an idea …” and then goes on to commit a horrific act of mass murder/terrorism.
Further, how many of these terrorist plots are created by the FBI to achieve political goals? Like say, committing a mass shooting with a firearm carried in checked baggage to inspire popular outrage in the hopes of further gun control?
What are your thoughts? Think this is some vast Government conspiracy? Or maybe just some rather reckless “counter terrorism” strategy that has backfired?
