Aaronson exposed how the FBI generates fake terror plots by finding Islamic dupes, providing the dupes with a plot and the resources, and then nipping the plot in the bud to save 'Murica.
I do not recall the rank and file FBI rebelling against that expose and against the FBI hierarchy.
But they do 'rebel' over Clinton's emails?
And with just over a week to go before the election?
Here is just one example of how FBI agents fits up dupes: a 21 year old student called Quazi Mohammad Nafis was duped with a proposed terror attack on a Federal Reserve Bank:
In truth, the stuff was inert. And Kareem was an undercover FBI agent, tipped off by the man who Nafis had believed was a confidant—an FBI informant. The FBI had secretly provided everything Nafis needed for his attack: not only the storage facility and supposed explosives, but also the detonator and the van that Nafis believed would deliver the bomb.
On the morning of October 17, Nafis and Kareem drove the van to Lower Manhattan and parked it in front of the Federal Reserve Bank on Liberty Street. Then they walked to a nearby hotel room, where Nafis dialed on his cellphone the number he believed would trigger the bomb, but nothing happened. He dialed again, and again. The only result was Nafis' apprehension by federal agents.
"The defendant thought he was striking a blow to the American economy," US Attorney Loretta E. Lynch said in a statement after the arrest. "At every turn, he was wrong, and his extensive efforts to strike at the heart of the nation's financial system were foiled by effective law enforcement. We will use all of the tools at our disposal to stop any such attack before it can occur."
