On October 17, 2012 a 21 year old Bangladeshi student was arrested for attempting to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York City. His bomb did not detonate because the FBI was in on his plan. His well-to-do family in Bangladesh expressed total disbelief that their son could ever have been involved in such activities.
According to FoxNews’ Judge Andrew Napolitano, “This is the 18th person since 9/11 that the FBI has found and persuaded to go along with a plot that it created, that it controlled and that never endangered anybody…Is it a good thing? Or is it beyond the limits of what law enforcement should be doing?”
Flashback to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center: The FBI was praised for its swift work in bringing the perpetrators to justice, only later for it to emerge that they could have been able to stop the attack, according to the FBI informant who helped to convict others in the bombing.
The ex-Egyptian Army Officer-turned-Informant, Emad Salem claimed that he and his FBI handlers had discussed replacing the deadly materials used in the bomb with an innocuous powder but the FBI overruled his suggestion, allowing six deaths and millions in property damages to occur. In fact, according to Salem, who made dozens of audiotapes between himself and his FBI handlers, the bomb that he built for the 1993 attacks was actually made under the direct supervision of the FBI and the District Attorney.
These tapes were never used in the trials of the conspirators and to this day, the FBI denies any foreknowledge of the attacks or that their informant built the bomb.
