Trump Announces New FBI Director
by Stephen Lendman
He nominated Christopher Wray to replace James Comey, a position needing Senate confirmation.
He’s a former assistant attorney general in charge of the Criminal Division under Bush/Cheney from 2003 – 2005.
In May 2001, he served as deputy attorney general Larry Thompson’s aide, later promoted to his post. Post-9/11, he was heavily involved in Bush/Cheney’s war on Islam.
Ignoring the mother of all false flags, during his 2003 Senate confirmation hearing, he said “(w)e have never…experienced anything as savage and cowardly as the (9/11 attack), and we must do everything within our power, within the Constitution and the law, to make sure it never happens again.”
During his tenure as assistant attorney general in charge of the Criminal Division, he was involved in witch-hunt plots, persecution and entrapment of targeted Muslims – for their faith, ethnicity, and at times prominence and charity.
They were ruthlessly vilified and exploited as war on terror scapegoats for political advantage, due process and judicial fairness consistently denied.
Numerous Muslims on Wray’s watch were hunted down, rounded up, held in detention, kept in isolation, denied bail, restricted in their right to counsel, tried on secret evidence, convicted on bogus charges, given long sentences, then incarcerated as political prisoners.
The FBI employs thousands of undercover agents, many times involved in sting operations, designed to entrap law-abiding people, Muslim targets of choice – victimized to claim victories in the phony war on terrorism.
Virtually all post-9/11 homeland terrorist plots were invented ones, innocent Muslims imprisoned to create the illusion of keeping America safe.
From inception, the FBI was a rogue agency, along with DHS America’s Gestapo, harming ordinary people to protect privilege – instruments of powerful interests, operating extrajudicially.
Post-9/1l police state laws unleashed the power of the state against constitutional protections – on the phony pretext of national security, the FBI, CIA, DHS and NSA playing leading roles.
If confirmed as FBI director, Wray will be in charge of the agency’s war OF terror on Muslims and other designated enemies of the state.
Inventing reasons to bash Russia, China and Iran will be part of his mandate.
His new book as editor and contributor is titled “Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks WW III.”
