Did NYPD “Undercover Agent” Try to Suborn Tarek Mehanna into a “Terrorist Plot”?


By Jeff Kaye, FireDogLake

Many bloggers and the press have reposted Tarek Mehanna’s impassioned speech to the court as he was sentenced to 17-1/2 years for supposedly providing “material support” to terrorists. (See here, here, here, and especially the ACLU’s Nancy Murray’s widely quoted article at the Boston Globe here.) But few have commented on Mehanna’s charges that he was set up by an undercover agent to participate in a terrorist plot, and that he refused the agent’s overtures.

These are the relevant portions of Mehanna’s statement at his sentencing hearing (bold emphases added):

Exactly four years ago this month I was finishing my work shift at a local hospital. As I was walking to my car I was approached by two federal agents. They said that I had a choice to make: I could do things the easy way, or I could do them the hard way. The “easy“ way, as they explained, was that I would become an informant for the government, and if I did so I would never see the inside of a courtroom or a prison cell. As for the hard way, this is it. Here I am, having spent the majority of the four years since then in a solitary cell the size of a small closet, in which I am locked down for 23 hours each day. The FBI and these prosecutors worked very hard — and the government spent millions of tax dollars — to put me in that cell, keep me there, put me on trial, and finally to have me stand here before you today to be sentenced to even more time in a cell….

It was made crystal clear at trial that I never, ever plotted to “kill Americans” at shopping malls or whatever the story was. The government’s own witnesses contradicted this claim, and we put expert after expert up on that stand, who spent hours dissecting my every written word, who explained my beliefs. Further, when I was free, the government sent an undercover agent to prod me into one of their little “terror plots,” but I refused to participate. Mysteriously, however, the jury never heard this.

READ THE REST.

As Wiki Leaks has demonstrated over and ove again, Western class hierarchies operate through bribery, threats, corruption , ALL OF WHICH


would be criminal if ordinary citizens did that to officials.    Class laws do the same, they set up innocent people on SEVERE charges,


to force them into submission, their own conviction to crimes they have not committed.   DITTO FO THE GESTAPO, FBI, Fascist Police,


their class hierarchies, class thugs , bribe, blackmail, JUST LIKE CORPORATE THUGS today.


 


One must submit to slavery, enslavement, THEIR CORRUPTION, THEIR BRIBERY, THEIR DESPOTISM to survive, the moral, rational


conclusion is to END ALL SUPPORT FOR CLASS HIERARCHIES,CLASS PARTIES, CLASS EMPIRE AND CLASS POLITICIANS, who


deform, subordinate, corrupt, coerce its own citizens INTO SLAVERY AND FASCISM.   END ALL SUPPORT FOR THESE CLASS PARTIES,


CLASS IDEOLOGIES that demand loyalty to FASCISM, AND COPORATISM, SLAVERY.   TAKE DOWN THIS CLASS HISTORY, ENSLAVED


HUMANITY ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Back in the Vietnam War protests, in the70's, I was framed up by the Columbus, Police for an event that took place against a FASCIST


JUDGE, AND I WASN'T EVEN THERE.   It was their esteemed Fascism, their word, and my puny denial as an ordinary citizen that


created a FASCIST PROCESS, choosing between a FELONY charge and accepting jail time for a lessor charge.    THIS IS HOW


THE FASCIST, RACIST LEGAL SYSTEM OPERATES. 


 


I refused to admit to a crime I did not commit, especially since I WAS AT ANOTHER PROTEST, SOMEWHERE ELSE.  The  Fascist


Judicial process automatically went into motion, AND LUCKILY,were it not for two black Jurors, who knew about the FASCIST, RACIST


POLICE, refused to go along with the FELONY CHARGE, one year in prison, the charge of threatening a Judge.  As it turned out later,


the OHIO SUPREME COURT heard my appeal, AND SAID THAT THE CHARGE OF FIGHTING WORDS, DOES NOT CONSTITUTE


THREATS TO A JUDGE .   I won my case on constitutional grounds, EVEN THOUGH I WAS NEVER THERE, AND STILL SERVED


TIME FOR THE LESSOR CHARGE......typical of Fascist, racist, legal courts, and fascist prosecutors, who BRIBE, BLACKMAIL, THREATEN,


COERCE INNOCENT PEOPE TO JAIL.  THE FBI, POLICE AND COURTS HAVE NO MORAL STANDING.
