"The FBI is helping Providence police in the search for a missing Brown University student who disappeared earlier this month.Now, a man who left his room without his wallet, ID, credit cards or cell phone has been identified by the Boston Police Department not only as a suspect in an ongoing manhunt that has already left multiple people dead, but also one of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing. The International Business Times reports in their article, "Boston Marathon Bombing: Indian-Origin Sunil Tripathi One of Alleged Suspects," that:
pokesman Gregory Comcowich said Sunday that federal law enforcement officials were aiding the search for 22-year-old Sunil Tripathi, who was last seen in the campus area on March 15.
Sangeeta Tripathi, the student's sister, told the Providence Journal that his wallet, ID cards, credit cards and cell phone were found in his room."
Boston police on Friday revealed the names of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, one of whom is an Indian origin person, Sunil Tripathi, reported CBS-affiliated television station WFSB.Could it be possible that yet another high-profile terror suspect was on the FBI's radar before a deadly attack was carried and the FBI yet again failed categorically to stop it? Or is this another case where the FBI approached an unstable individual, ran them through the course of planning an attack, supplying them with weapons and explosives and "accidentally" let them go through with it, as was the tragic case in 1993 at the World Trade Center?
During the alleged plot, undercover FBI agents posed as accomplices who supplied Ferdaus with one remote-controlled plane, C4 explosives, and small arms that he allegedly envisioned using in a simultaneous ground assault in Washington.In November 2010, a similar "plot" was engineered, then "disrupted," also by the FBI - this time in Portland, Oregon. The so-called "Christmas Tree Bomber" attempted to remote detonate a van he believed was filled with explosives, provided by the FBI, before being arrested during a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Pioneer Courthhouse Square. The FBI's official statement regarding the incident revealed that FBI agents had handled, even detonated live explosives with the entrapped suspect at Lincoln County Park in the lead up to the final failed bombing.
However, ''the public was never in danger from the explosive devices, which were controlled by undercover FBI employees,'' the FBI said.
Ferdaus was arrested in Framingham, near Boston, immediately after putting the newly delivered weapons into a storage container, the FBI said.
Authorities described Ferdaus as a physics graduate from Northeastern University who followed al-Qaeda and was committed to ''violent jihad'' since early last year.
According to the affidavit, on November 4, 2010, Mohamud and the undercover FBI operatives traveled to a remote location in Lincoln County, Ore., where they detonated a bomb concealed in a backpack as a trial run for the upcoming attack. Afterwards, on the drive back to Corvallis, undercover FBI operatives questioned Mohamud as to whether he was capable of looking at the bodies of those who would be killed in the upcoming attack in Portland. According to the affidavit, Mohamud responded, “I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave either dead or injured.”Yet another similar operation was carried out by the FBI in February 2012, where yet another otherwise incapable patsy was provided with live explosives in the lead up to what was ultimately a failed suicide bombing at the US Capitol. USA Today reported in their article, "FBI foils alleged suicide bomb attack on U.S. Capitol," that (emphasis added):
According to a counterterrorism official, El Khalifi "expressed interest in killing at least 30 people and considered targeting a building in Alexandria and a restaurant, synagogue and a place where military personnel gather in Washington before he settled on the Capitol after canvassing that area a couple of times," the Associated Press writes. During the year-long investigation, El Khalifi detonated explosives at a quarry in the capital region with undercover operatives. He is not believed to be affiliated with al-Qaeda, officials said.The frightening trend of the FBI cultivating otherwise incapable "terror" suspects, providing them with and detonating real explosives, before giving them inert or controlled devices to carry out attacks on public targets where mass casualties are averted only at the last possible moment, sets the stage for at the very least, incredible potential for catastrophic blunders, and at worst, false flag attacks.
Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.This frightening history lesson reveals a pattern of either serial negligence on an unprecedented scale or a vast criminal conspiracy - and regardless of which is actually the case, the prime suspect in any terror attack on US soil should be the FBI, first and foremost. That the FBI knew and was in fact searching for Sunil Tripathi before he carried out the attack, meaning yet another high-profile terror suspect was at the very least already being pursued by the FBI represents a statistically impossible coincidental pattern.
The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said.
The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City's tallest towers. The explosion left six people dead, more than 1,000 injured and damages in excess of half a billion dollars.
