WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange has made a chilling comment on the mass shooting in Las Vegas on the night of October 1 wherein 64-year-old Stephen Paddock killed 59 people and injured 527 more in a terrifying 10-minute long attack on a music festival from his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
Assange suggests the FBI, which has a sordid history of targeting mentally ill and emotionally unstable individuals, is behind the gruesome Las Vegas massacre.
“Almost all “terror” plots are created by the FBI as part of its business model”, he wrote on Twitter.
Assange linked his comments to a Business Insider story written by Caroline Simone titled “The FBI is ‘manufacturing terrorism cases’ on a greater scale than ever before.” Simone wrote an echo piece from The New York Times which indicated that 67% of terrorism criminal cases also involved evidence provided by undercover FBI agents.
Almost all “terror” plots are created by the FBI as part of its business model.
What is the business of the FBI? Extracting tax. What does it need to do that? A stable threat. Prob? Real terrorists are sporadic & make FBI look weak. Solution? Make them.https://t.co/Ta4fy7ENjE pic.twitter.com/qMrkbFKMJe

Asssange’s tweet referenced Sami Osmakac as one such poor and emotionally unstable individual who the FBI groomed to be one of their nabbed terrorists. Democracy Now covered the Osmakac case and provided a synopsis:
“How the FBI Created a Terrorist. That’s the subtitle of a new exposé in The Intercept by Trevor Aaronson, a journalist who investigates the FBI’s use of informants in sting operations. The article tells the story of Sami Osmakac, a mentally disturbed, financially unstable young man who was targeted by an elaborately orchestrated FBI sting in early 2012.
“The operation involved a paid informant who hired Osmakac for a job, when he was too broke to afford inert government weapons. The FBI provided the weapons seen in a so-called martyrdom video Osmakac filmed before he planned to deliver what he believed was a car bomb to a bar in Tampa, Florida. His family believes Osmakac never would have initiated such a plot without the FBI”.
Assange is not the only one who thinks the FBI’s strategy of entrapping vulnerable individuals is disgusting. The New York Times writes:
“The F.B.I. has significantly increased its use of stings in terrorism cases, employing agents and informants to pose as jihadists, bomb makers, gun dealers or online “friends” in hundreds of investigations into Americans suspected of supporting the Islamic State, records and interviews show”.
