U just can't make this stuff up! "Ayloush reported the FBI's own informant to the FBI." The Mosque even got a restraining order against him! The informant now feels betrayed by the FBI and has been apologizing to Muslims. Will he one day become a real Muslim?...

Tension grows between Calif. Muslims, FBI after informant infiltrates mosque


Mosque infiltration feeds Muslims' distrust of FBI in Southern California

Tension is growing between the Muslim community and the FBI after an informant, Craig Monteilh, infiltrated a mosque, only a month after a local FBI leader visited the mosque and said the agency would do no such thing. Now, Monteilh is suing the FBI and revealing details of his operation.


Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, December 5, 2010; 12:47 AM

IRVINE, CALIF. - Before the sun rose, the informant donned a white Islamic robe. A tiny camera was sewn into a button, and a microphone was buried in a device attached to his keys.

"This is Farouk al-Aziz, code name Oracle," he said into the keys as he sat in his parked car in this quiet community south of Los Angeles. "It's November 13th, 4:30 a.m. And we're hot."

The undercover FBI informant - a convicted forger named Craig Monteilh - then drove off for 5 a.m. prayers at the Islamic Center of Irvine, where he says he spied on dozens of worshipers in a quest for potential terrorists.

Since the 2001 terrorist attacks, the FBI has used informants successfully as one of many tactics to prevent another strike in the United States. Agency officials say they are careful not to violate civil liberties and do not target Muslims.

But the FBI's approach has come under fire from some Muslims, criticism that surfaced again late last month after agents arrested an Oregon man they said tried to detonate a bomb at a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. FBI technicians had supplied the device.

In the Irvine case, Monteilh's mission as an informant backfired. Muslims were so alarmed by his talk of violent jihad that they obtained a restraining order against him.

He had helped build a terrorism-related case against a mosque member, but that also collapsed. The Justice Department recently took the extraordinary step of dropping charges against the worshiper, who Monteilh had caught on tape agreeing to blow up buildings, law enforcement officials said. Prosecutors had portrayed the man as a dire threat.

Compounding the damage, Monteilh has gone public, revealing secret FBI methods and charging that his "handlers" trained him to entrap Muslims as he infiltrated their mosques, homes and businesses. He is now suing the FBI.

ws,

akhan not sure i remember?? and both are horrible for sure.

lucid it's possible... post some crazy opinions etc and see who writes to u privately/agrees with u kind of thing. (in writing i have seen the fbi only admit to sending ppl who post "moderate" views on islamic msg boards but its possible they do the spectrum....), but mostly i think these guys are like really new converts/or young dudes. they just have extreme views because their analysis is not nuanced and they don't have exposure to other views/normal teachers/scholars. they just talk a lot and stupidly. (but never actually do anything cuz they love their armchairs) over time they would mature and get over their anger/dysfunctional issues. but now we have to worry that before they mature, an fbi agent will entrap them over their naivite/stupidity and their life is over right there, not to mention the untold damage to the ummah...
 
it honestly reminds me of some young unmarried guys who say stupid things about women/marriage, then ten years later after actually having married/had kids and exposure to normalcy and women they realize how dumb they were...
