“or Julian Assange…oh wait, he’s now the devil because he “manipulated” the US elections in favor of Trump by letting us know about Hillary’s emails”
THIS all day! The left only likes the whistle blower if they are anti right, or at least not openly attacking someone on the left.
“ *“You realize that many of these people would never have committed a crime if not for law enforcement encouraging, pressuring, and sometimes paying them to commit terrorist acts,” Andrea Prasow of Human Rights Watch wrote in a 2014 report on the program.**”
I agree in general but keep in mind the gov’t uses these thwarted “attacks” to increase their funding and program reach. Sure, these guys are more likely to become terrorists than say you or I, I get that. What I find asinine is that they take some dude making minimum wage with no connections or the brain power to come up with a effective plan and turn him into a super militant. The gov’t offers him a pile of money, stinger missiles, and a bulleted list/maps of a sensitive installation and then they hold a press conference talking about how he was practically Bin Laden.
