Shortly after the Boston Marathon bombing, easily exposed as a false flag event, a friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Ibragim Todashev was shot and killed in his apartment in Miami while undergoing FBI “interrogation.”
Once the veil is pierced, it’s easy to understand what happened: He was intimidated, and when he failed to cooperate, he was murdered*.
Noam Chomsky liked to try to reduce our illusions to reality in a few poignant words, and referred to our FBI as our secret, or “political” police. I’ll take my definition from Wiki, as I am a painter today and will not be spending much time at the keyboard (meaning I accept Wiki at face):
Secret police (sometimes political police) are intelligence agencies and or police agency, law enforcement agency which operates in secrecy, alternative name for secret service and also quite often in totalitarian states beyond the law to protect the political power of an individual dictator and/or an authoritarian (autocracy) political regime.
I have noticed over the years that in all our entertainment media, whether it is an R-rated movie with violence and thuggery or a sitcom spoofing some part of our daily life, that the FBI is sacrosanct. Indeed it is a large organization with thousands of employees. The agency employs a large number of people who are rigorously vetted in certain areas, so there has to be real crime-solving and investigation going on. There are indeed honest people among the crooks, people who want to do a good job, to serve and protect.
However, as with any human endeavor tainted by money, power and politics, it is complicated. In the end, due to the extreme corruption and insanity of our oligarchs in this day and age, I think of the FBI as just another dark force, a tool of the powerful, an agency charged with carrying out crimes rather than solving them, of spying on us rather than protecting us. When Ibragim Todashev threatened to make trouble on their big Boston scam, they murdered him*.
Worst part: After they murdered him, the FBI investigated itself, and decided no rules had been broken.
Worst part 2: They can get away with bullshit like that because of the FBI’s carefully honed public image in the media.
There’s a new book out called “Hoover’s FBI and the Fourth Estate: The Campaign to Control the Press and the Bureau’s Image” by Matthew Cecil. I am not going to read it, as there are not enough hours in the day, but it is reviewed at Russ Baker’s WhoWhatWhy.
If, when you think FBI, you think suits and ties and laboratories and gum shoes, read the review. You need to wise up a bit.
*”Murder” is my working premise until there is a credible and independent investigation by independent people with power of subpoena – I might bring in the Russians at this time, as the Tsarnaev’s and Todashev are of Chechen heritage. We’ve got two murders and one violent criminal assault here, neither of which has been investigated in a credible, transparent process.
