Make no mistake, the United States government is at war with its own citizens.
Muslims and persons of Arab descent are primary targets, but as a wiser man said: “First they came for the XYZ… , and I did not speak out because I was not XYZ.”
This particular This American Life episode is relevant to the FBI's war on Muslim Americans and worth a listen:

This is beyond sad. The lives of an entire family ruined.
15 years and for what? Just so the FBI can show that they're doing something and justify their budget. Frame random people and lock them away with little to no rights.
This is wrong on both institutional and personal level. What kind of people are okay with doing something like this and why is the government employing and promoting them?
