OP, apparently you don't know what the term "false flag operation" means. These 17 supposed terrorist plots foiled by the FBI were case of
entrapment, wherein the FBI had agent provocateurs who encouraged/goaded the suspects into planning a terrorist attack. They were not cases of the
FBI conducting terrorist attacks themselves and making it looked like somebody else did them, which is what false flag operations are.
Reading your thread further, I see you are outright LYING, claiming that the FBI carried out these 17 terrorist "attacks". Again, the ones foiled by
the FBI certainly weren't carried out. You're contradicting yourself by claiming so. These were plots that the FBI encourage likely would-be
terrorists into planning a terrorist attack, in order that the FBI could then arrest them and make the FBI look like it was on the ball, and to
justify anti-terror law-enforcement budgets. They allowed none of these FBI-cooked schemes to come to fruition, nor did they ever supply usable
So again, how were these foiled terrorist plots carried out? To carry them out means to complete them, i.e. detonate some device at a target. Yet
this did not occur. If it did, please provide corroborating evidence of this.
I'm not condoning such entrapment tactics by the FBI, or patting the FBI on the back for "foiling" these cooked-up terrorist plots, but rather calling
you out on your misleading, ignorant and/or mendacious thread title.
I know ATS'ers love to throw around the term "false flag", but they really need to learn their English vocabulary before they go off half-cocked,
making false claims in their threads and thread titles.
Want to talk about the government hyping the terrorist threat in order to justify its anti-terror budgets and additional infringement on our civil
liberties? I'm all for it, but IXNAY on the ignorant/mendacious false flag rhetoric.
I can't believe all the support of this ill-informed and mendacious thread. Frankly, any thread on the Kardashians deserves more flags and stars than
