Neocon Think Tank Cites Cleveland Bust to Push Police State Surveillance
May 2, 2012
The Heritage Foundation has come out in favor of the FBI’s “counterterrorism” strategy of arranging fake terror attacks. On the day after the FBI convinced a gaggle of “anarchists” to blow up a Cleveland bridge with an inoperable bomb provided by one of its agents provocateurs, the “New Right” think tank funded by CIA asset Richard Mellon Scaife and beer magnate Joe Coors posted an article supporting this dubious anti-terror effort.
“The best defense against all manners of terrorist threats, Islamist-inspired or otherwise, is to stop them before they occur by developing and maintaining effective counterterrorism, intelligence, and information-sharing programs. Thus, by employing an all-threats approach to counterterrorism, the Department of Homeland Security can protect against the many varied terrorist threats posed against the U.S.,” writes Jessica Zuckerman for the Heritage Foundation.
In fact, minus the FBI’s involvement, the motley crew arrested earlier this week would have not secured what they thought was a bomb and would have remained little more than a nuisance along with other so-called “anarchists,” who are in fact property vandals with vague and confused anarcho-communist ideas of smashing capitalism and confronting the police (who they often work for).
