In a recent leaked e-mail exchange from November 2011, Fred Burton, Stratfor’s Vice President for Intelligence and Stratfor source who was an “FBI senior official” has revealed that the NYPD has been involved in “felonious” acts of subterfuge on an epic scale.
Wikipedia gives a synopsis on the aims and methods of "Red Squads" and "COINTEL"
Red Squads In the United States, Red Squads were police intelligence units that specialized
in infiltrating, conducting counter-measures and gathering intelligence on
political and social groups during the 20th century.
- Infiltration: Agents and informers did not merely spy on political activists. Their main purpose was to discredit and disrupt. Their very presence served to undermine trust and scare off potential supporters. The FBI and police exploited this fear to smear genuine activists as agents.
- Psychological warfare: The FBI and police used myriad “dirty tricks” to undermine progressive movements. They planted false media stories and published bogus leaflets and other publications in the name of targeted groups. They forged correspondence, sent anonymous letters, and made anonymous telephone calls. They spread misinformation about meetings and events, set up pseudo movement groups run by government agents, and manipulated or strong-armed parents, employers, landlords, school officials and others to cause trouble for activists.
- Legal harassment: The FBI and police abused the legal system to harass dissidents and make them appear to be criminals. Officers of the law gave perjured testimony and presented fabricated evidence as a pretext for false arrests and wrongful imprisonment. They discriminatorily enforced tax laws and other government regulations and used conspicuous surveillance, “investigative” interviews, and grand jury subpoenas in an effort to intimidate activists and silence their supporters.
- Illegal force: The FBI conspired with local police departments to threaten dissidents; to conduct illegal break-ins in order to search dissident homes; and to commit vandalism, assaults, beatings and assassinations. The object was to frighten, or eliminate, dissidents and disrupt their movements
A prime candidate for such a "pseudo movement groups run by government agents" in NYPD jurisdiction must surely be Youssef al-Khattab's (Joseph Cohen's) Revolution Muslim. Cohen/al-Khattab, a former Orthodox Jew, and friends - themselves Muslim converts - could always be relied upon to make Muslims look as dangerous as possible at opportune moments. Despite having no mandate to speak for Muslims or any grassroots support whatsover Revolution Muslim were mysteriously given a platform to vent their views to a national audience on numerous occasions through the mainstream news channels.
Revolution Muslim members had been banned from their local Mosques and Muslim groups were skeptical of the group from the beginning.
The vast majority of Muslim Americans despise Revolution Muslim and their hate-filled ideology. The New York mosque the group frequented banned them from setting foot inside the premises, forcing them to preach on the street corner. Many Muslim Americans question whether Revolution Muslim are real Muslims, and instead hold them to be agent provocateurs who wish to smear Islam. Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said Revolution Muslim is “an extreme fringe group that has absolutely no credibility within the Muslim community” and that the “wild and irresponsible things” they say has led to “a strong suspicion [in the Muslim American community] that they’re merely a setup to make Muslims and Islam look bad. ”
Why are these Conintel "agents" who founded RM now sitting in prison? Didn't Revolution Muslim close before these emails were even leaked?
Furthermore the hyping of a publishing company as some kind of international spy network seems to be something that many fools on the web as well as many mainstream media seem to be eating up.
Connecting "Stratforgate" to RM is a highly tenuous link. The NYPD are accused of entrapment and some genius now thinks the New York police are running fake al-queda cells or something?
Is this something that comes from that Saudi Mouthpiece that is CAIR?
The founder of RM is a restaranteur in Morocco.
It's quite simple. The FBI agent reveals that there are major COINTELPRO operations happening in NY. RM ticks all the boxes. You don't have to be "some genius" to figure this out.
You'd need to ask them.
Who would that be then?
You misunderstand the email completely. The agent said the entrapment methods used will
He didn't say there are actually cointel operations going on. Again jumping to conclusions as usual.
You are citing them in this conspiracy, that's why I ask.
Triple citizen Israeli/US/Moroccan Joseph Cohen/Youssef al-Khattab
On the contrary, it is you who doesn't understand. The FBI Agent said: "when everything Intel has been involved in during the last 10 years comes
Well he did, but on a much larger scale than what has gone before.
"They(NYPD INTEL) are going to make Hoover,
COINTEL, Red Squads, etc look like rank amatures compared to some of the damn right felonious activity, and violations of U.S. citizen's rights
they have been engaged in"
Ha Ha, nice try. He fled to Tetouan when Jones etc. were arrested. He was denouncing RM since he left it in 2009. Fact is the two currently in Prison started RM with him.
So we have two members of RM in Prison and Khattab who has been denouncing RM on his own website since 2009. And you still think RM is a prime candidate for an NYPD psy-ops or some nonsense!
You should pay less attention to those Saudi yes men.
It's a shame you are so ill-informed as their is scope for an intelligent if speculative discussion.
This is false.
This is also false.
I can say al-Khattab's group if you prefer? You are not thinking about this hard enough.
Tell me why two members of a group are imprisoned for making veiled threats and a third the original founder/leader/public face/voice/soul of the group is free when he makes threats that at the very least equivalent veiled threats?
Veiled threats! You're funny!
Chesser pleaded guilty to providing material support to Al Shabaab, he was apprehended as he attempted to board a plane to Uganda, en route to Somalia. According to his affidavit, he expected to receive firearms and basic training with Al Shabaab.
Morton pleaded guilt to three charges of using the internet to solicit murder and encourage violence. A large number of convicted US terrorists were bloggers, contributors or otherwise members on Morton's various RM sites, blogs and fora.
Like I said already Khattab was denouncing RM on his personal website in 2009. He also says on his own website that the RM Web site he helped launch was a “bug light for Muslim misfit". He clearly knows just how far he can stretch the the law here.
I don't know why you are laughing tbh. Chesser was convicted of making indirect threats and sentenced as was Jesse Curtis Morton
Now explain to me why Cohen has never been charged...
Always with the half truths, I doubt you even convince yourself half the time.
Chesser was charged with attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and soliciting to desensitize law enforcement.
You'll also notice (probably not) that the article you linked to states quite clearly that the Leader of Revolution Muslim was Morton.
Khattab is a coward who began to distance himself from his pals when they started getting into trouble and has change his public opinions to keep himself out of jail. It seems he now describes himself as a "libertarian in the United States" and Ron Paul supporter!!
