FBI Stops Yet Another (Yes Another) Of Its Own Terrorist Plots; This Time: Anarchists!

from the anarchists-running-amok dept

Following our post about the NY Times highlighting how the FBI seems to spend an awful lot of time foiling its own terrorist plots, some of our commenters pointed us to the news that the FBI has done it again (just in time to coincide with our story), arresting five individuals in a plot that appears to have been coordinated by the FBI itself. Even though some of the "anarchists" arrested expressed concerns about how resorting to violence would help, the FBI helped supply fake explosives and that appears to have convinced the group to move forward with its "plot." Prior to that, they seem to have had little actual ability to do much of anything, other than thumbing through The Anarchists' Cookbook and talking about what they'd like to do.

    My daily schedule, by an FBI agent

    8:00 AM Bow down before our holy gods and masters, the MPAA and RIAA. Kiss Chris Dodd's ring and vow eternal vigilance against the enemies of the state: college kids sharing mixtapes.

    8:30 AM Briefing on Occupy Wall Street protest. Protesters heavily armed with signs and songs, maximum response required.

    9:00 AM Requisition gear for Occupy response. Body armor, heavy weaponry, shields, tasers, water cannons, armored vehicles, air-to-ground missiles, pepper spray, barbed wire, and the old standby, truncheons.

    9:30 AM-12:30 PM Uphold the First Amendment by beating as many protesters as possible.

    12:30 PM Lunch. (Today: provided by our friends and benefactors on Wall Street)

    1:30-1:31 PM: Seminar on fundamentals of public service, including protecting the rights of American citizens.

    1:35-3:15 PM Undercover detail. Susie Creamcheese (6th grade) was recorded saying "I hate Mrs. Crabtree!" after school and may be a dangerous anarchist communist socialist Muslim Mexican homosexual feminist threat to the security of the United States. Infiltrate soccer team and offer to provide nuclear weapons.

    3:30 PM Briefing on religious threats to civilians. Ignore clear and present danger such as North Carolina Pastor Sean Harris: Parents Should 'Punch' Their Gay-Acting Children or the long-term institutionalized practice of systematic child rape (and its coverup) conducted by the Catholic church and focus entirely on THE threat: Muslims on the other side of the planet who are too busy trying to survive to pay any attention to us.

    4:30-5:00 PM Write up daily report. (Special crayons today!)
