FBI Informant Exposes Sting Operation Targeting Innocent Americans 
in New "(T)ERROR" Documentary
 

We [Democracy Now] spend the hour with an explosive new film that shines a bright light on the FBI's shadowy use of informants in its counter-terrorism sting operations. These undercover operatives are meant to root out would-be terrorists before they attack. Since 9/11, they have been used to prosecute at least 158 people. But critics argue they often target the wrong people, "including those with intellectual and mental disabilities, and the indigent." "(T)ERROR" goes inside the world of a particular informant who has played a key role in several major terrorism cases. It does so while he is in the middle of carrying out his latest sting operation. [AD note: by posting this news from Democracy Now, this does not necessarily mean we endorse the news source Democracy Now. The FBI has a history of setting up "terrorists" through informers who are often paid to incriminate people which has been documented at AD several times over the past several years.]
