US Govt Makes Al Qaeda Recruitment Videos AND Runs Child Porn Sites???

All for a good cause, I’m sure…

The FBI May Have Run Not Just One But 24 Dark Web Child-Porn Websites
The sites are thought to have accounted for roughly half of all child porn websites on the dark web.

The FBI has a controversial new method of fighting child pornography: distributing child pornography. As part of “Operation Pacifier,” the federal law-enforcement agency ran a dark-web child porn clearinghouse called The Playpen for two weeks, delivering malware to any site visitors, in a scheme that was revealed last summer. But it turns out that site may not have been the only dark-web site that the FBI maintained. According to documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the agency was actually authorized to takeover 23 child-pornography websites in addition to The Playpen.

SERIOUSLY?
Pentagon Paid for Fake ‘Al Qaeda’ Videos
A controversial foreign PR firm known for representing unsavory characters was paid millions by the Pentagon to create fake terrorist videos.

Lord Bell, who stood down as chairman of Bell Pottinger earlier this year, told the Sunday Times that the deployment of tracking devices described by Wells was “perfectly possible,” but he was personally unaware of it.

At a certain point, running kiddie porn sites and terrorist recruitment videos does more harm than good–and I don’t much believe in unintended consequences (or, for that matter, bizarre coincidences–see below).

Reminds me of the exposé in The New York Times and on Judge Nap’s Fox show (one of his last) that FBI stings were responsible for the vast majority of terrorist busts.

Bet you didn’t know that the World Trade Center bombing in 1993 was an FBI sting operation–they actually provided live explosives! And the Oklahoma City Bombing had FBI operatives deeply involved.

This also reminds me of a “bizarre coincidence” in which an FBI bomb technician who worked on the OKC investigation, Donald Sachtleben, blew the whistle on the second underwear bomber–also an intelligence asset, but for the British–then was arrested for distributing child porn…

And don’t even get me started on the first underwear bomber...

  1. The fake video paid for by the pentagon doesn’t surprise me. The military industrialized complex needs a constant reason to exist. I saw this first hand in Bosnia during their civil war in the 90’s. There’s no profit in peace.
