Just some thoughts and some links
This from Wiki
Traditionally, an agent provocateur (plural: agents provocateurs, French for "inciting agent(s)") is a person employed by the police or other entity
to act undercover to entice or provoke another person to commit an illegal act. More generally, the term may refer to a person or group that seeks to
discredit or harm another by provoking them to commit a wrong or rash action.
In the United States, the COINTELPRO program of the Federal Bureau of Investigation had FBI agents pose as political radicals to disrupt the
activities of radical political groups in the U.S., such as the Black Panthers, Ku Klux Klan, and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.
New York City police officers were accused of acting as agents provocateurs during protests against the 2004 Republican National Convention in New
Denver police officers were also found to have used undercover detectives to instigate violence against police during the 2008 Democratic National
Convention. This ultimately resulted in the accidental use of chemical agents against their own men.
COINTELPRO (an acronym for Counter Intelligence Program) was a series of covert, and often illegal, projects conducted by the United States Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting domestic political organizations.
COINTELPRO tactics included discrediting targets through psychological warfare such as planting false reports in the media, smearing through forged
letters, harassment, wrongful imprisonment, and extralegal violence and assassination. Covert operations under COINTELPRO took place between 1956 and
1971, however the FBI has used covert operations against domestic political groups since its inception. The FBI's stated motivation at the time
was "protecting national security, preventing violence, and maintaining the existing social and political order."
FBI records show that 85% of COINTELPRO resources targeted groups and individuals that the FBI deemed "subversive," including communist and
socialist organizations; organizations and individuals associated with the civil rights movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others
associated with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the Congress of
Racial Equality and other civil rights organizations; black nationalist groups; the American Indian Movement; a broad range of organizations labeled
"New Left", including Students for a Democratic Society and the Weathermen; almost all groups protesting the Vietnam War, as well as individual
student demonstrators with no group affiliation; the National Lawyers Guild; organizations and individuals associated with the women's rights
movement; nationalist groups such as those seeking "independence for Puerto Rico" and a United Ireland; and additional notable Americans, such as
Dr. Albert Einstein.
More research would yield more information but what do we learn from all of this? The US is not alone in the employment of agent provocateurs but its
history of use is well documented. Many groups and individuals have been targeted, groups defined by the FBI as subversive. Any yet we are supposed
to believe ATS 9/11 threads have been devoid of this kind of activity, well let me ask, who here does not think ATS has its own agent provocateurs
watching the threads.
It's happened before 9/11 and since 9/11 but somehow 9/11 truth is immune to these terrible government actions?
PS keep it civil.
