The Brennan Center for Justice presents: Stung: Exposing Manufactured Terror Cases
|On May 20, 2009, four Muslim men from upstate New York were arrested by the FBI and charged with plotting to bomb two Jewish synagogues and shoot missiles at military supply planes. The FBI and NYPD claimed they caught the men red-handed, but as HBO’s recent documentary The Newburgh Sting later revealed, the men were more guilty of greed than they were terrorism. In fact, the FBI has a history of using informants to entice young men into fake terror plots. Al Jazeera’s documentary Informants tells the story of three such FBI informants who posed as Muslims and searched for people interested in joining violent plots concocted by the FBI.Join the producers of these two groundbreaking documentary films, Trevor Aaronson and David Heilbroner, along with Linda Sarsour, the Executive Director of the Arab American Association of New York, and Michael German, a former FBI agent who is now a Fellow at the Brennan Center for a discussion about how communities are impacted by law enforcement’s use of informants. What happens when law enforcement officials suppress the exercise of religion and political expression in a community? What steps are advocacy groups taking to expose the targeting of entire communities in the name of counter-terrorism?
