The Washington Post published a story so horrifying this weekend that it would stop your breath: “The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000.”
The recent arrests on terrorism-related charges of six young Somali-Americans from Minneapolis and others throughout the United States have prompted renewed questions over the issue of entrapment, and over the degree of real security achieved by disrupting plots that law-enforcement had helped shape.
The six, ages 19 to 21, were charged with conspiracy to aid and support a terrorist organization, and are accused of trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also called ISIS).
There was a time when I regarded the idea of an ‘Establishment cover-up’ with a pinch of salt. Was it really plausible that the powers-that-be should act in concert over a prolonged period of time to suppress the truth?
Even if they attempted to do so, surely some decent person would sooner or later speak out, or inform the Press. It seemed unlikely that evil on a vast scale could be concealed more or less indefinitely in what is supposed to be a free and open society.

The following is a joint press release from Louisiana State Police and the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office:
On March 2015, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office received information alleging a June 2014 narcotics arrest of Bryan Knight by Lafayette Metro Narcotics Task Force was the result of a scheme purposely planned and staged. Investigators launched an inquiry and developed information to support the complaint thus warranting further investigation.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A firsthand account of the Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden contradicts previous accounts by administration officials, raising questions as to whether the terror mastermind presented a clear threat when SEALs first fired upon him.
Turkey decided to clamp down on several web sites the last week of March for exposing a recently leaked discussion by high-ranking government officials. The controversial recording captured a planned false flag incident that would justify Turkey’s military intervention into bordering Syria. This leak, and the government’s response to try to silence its dissemination, has significant implications of global importance.
