The new Peter B. Collins podcast looks at the similarities involving surveillance and paid FBI informants in five San Francisco Bay Area “domestic terrorism” cases.
Terry Lee Loewen is an unlikely jihadi—white, middle-aged and from Wichita. Yet he said some damning things in online chats with what the government says he thought were fellow future martyrs. Instead, they were undercover FBI agents who lured him into a plot they cooked up to bomb Wichita’s airport. Was it vigilance or entrapment?
Recently leaked chat logs reveal that an FBI informant was guiding criminal cyber-attacks and that the FBI may have lied regarding what—and when—it knew about hacking operations.
