Official Narrative

The 'primary mission' of the FBI, formerly "law enforcement" was noted to have silently changed in 2013 to "national security". FBI spokesman Paul Bresson stated dryly that "When our mission changed after 9/11, our fact sheet changed to reflect that".[1]

Problems

The FBI has a network of thousands of agents provocateurs who actively assist and encourage people to commit terrorism, so that the FBI can then catch them. In 2012 Project Censored reported that the "majority of terrorist plots in the United States" are actually incited by FBI agents, and reports that such informants receive cash rewards of up to $100,000 per case.[2]

History

J. Edgar Hoover

Full article: J. Edgar Hoover

More than anyone else, J. Edgar Hoover was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director until his death in 1972 at age 77. Hoover built the FBI into a large crime-fighting agency, and used it as a an information gathering apparatus to collect blackmail material on political dissenters, activists and political leaders.[3] According to President Harry S. Truman, Hoover transformed the FBI into his private secret police force; Truman stated that "we want no Gestapo or secret police. FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him".[4] However, biographer Kenneth D. Ackerman considers these kind of statements to be hyperbole.[5]
