Not shocking from the agency that tried to blackmail Martin Luther King into commiting suicide. The FBI should’ve been dissolved/reformed once Hoover was out of the way.

American intelligence is rubbish at looking out for its own assets to a baffling degree.


#4

But then, the informant, who used to be a nihilistic, hedonistic loser ends up learning a lot about person growth, motivation and serving their country, and the buttoned-down FBI agent learns how to loosen up, and also that his boss is secretly siphoning off funds from the pension fund, and after they right a bunch of wrongs together, they end up best friends, right? right? *eyes well up a little* RIGHT? *full-on cries* right?

Are these the same informants that are telling us that Russia hacked our elections?


#6

I would deeply appreciate if someone could post direct PDF links to these documents.
It’s really hard to make use of them when they’re embedded in web sites without a way to download!


#7

That is a violation of law.


#8

Do they have a copy of the page where the FBI goad/train/“radicalize” teens into building “bombs” with materials that the FBI supplies?


#9

Uh, no. Try again.
