FBI/DHS Fear-Mongering Hypes Nonexistent ISIS Threat to America

FBI/DHS Fear-Mongering Hypes Nonexistent ISIS Threat to America

by Stephen Lendman

Phony claims repeated enough get most people to believe them, no matter how implausible. 

Here’s the latest. A joint FBI/DHS alert warned about a phony ISIS threat to America, stating:

The alert “is intended to provide information on the potential for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) US-based sympathizers to carry out attacks on law enforcement and government personnel.”

“This bulletin “is intended to support the activities of FBI and DHS to assist federal, state and local government counterterrorism and law enforcement officials, first responders, and private sector security partners in effectively deterring, preventing, preempting, or responding to terrorist attacks against the United States.”

“We assess many of the recent calls by ISIL and its supporters on violent extremist web forums and social media for violence in the Homeland are being made in retaliation for ongoing US airstrikes in Iraq and Syria.”

“These calls could motivate homegrown violent extremists…to conduct Homeland attacks, particularly against law enforcement personnel.”

The FBI and DHS admit having “no information indicating” a planned homeland attack. Yet they’re hyping a nonexistent threat anyway. Fake news fear-mongering is what it’s all about.

Fact: Chances for a terrorist attack by ISIS, its sympathizers or any other terrorist group in America is virtually nil.

Fact: Washington created and supports these groups. They depend on what’s provided. Why would they bite the hand feeding it?

Fact: Discount the threat as utter nonsense.

Fact: All so-called terrorist attacks on US cities in memory were state-sponsored false flags - 9/11 the mother of them all.

Fact: Any future attacks will be by dark forces infesting Washington - not ISIS, not any other terrorist group, not any set up innocent patsy or patsies blamed.

The latest FBI/DHS fear-mongering stunt is a hoax - maybe ahead of whatever state-sponsored terrorism neocon lunatics in Washington have in mind.
