Dy’er  Sez: Hal Turner was no simple blogger, as the following news story would lead you to believe. He was also a radio host, and a regular contributor to right-wing radio shows as well (notably, he had quite a bit of air time on Sean Hannitiy’s show). 

 One now has to pose two VERY important questions: how many other bloggers and radio/TV hosts are employees of the FBI? I’ve a funny feeling that the usual FOX mouth pieces can be eyed as potential provocateurs, but let’s not forget that CNN’s Anderson Cooper was in the CIA and that Wolf Blitzer got his paycheck from AIPAC not too many years ago (hmmmm…slight conflicts of interest, no?)

 The second question is: why is the FBI using agent provocateurs (on the tax payer dime, no less) against American citizens in the first place?

Attorney: FBI trained NJ blogger to incite others 

Associated Press Writer

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A New Jersey blogger facing charges in two states for allegedly making threats against lawmakers and judges was trained by the FBI on how to be deliberately provocative, his attorney said Tuesday.

Hal Turner worked for the FBI from 2002 to 2007 as an “agent provocateur” and was taught by the agency “what he could say that wouldn’t be crossing the line,” defense attorney Michael Orozco said. “His job was basically to publish information which would cause other parties to act in a manner which would lead to their arrest,” Orozco said.

Prosecutors have acknowledged that Turner was an informant who spied on radical right-wing organizations, but the defense has said Turner was not working for the FBI when he allegedly made threats against Connecticut legislators and wrote that three federal judges in Illinois deserved to die. “But if you compare anything that he did say when he was operating, there was no difference. No difference whatsoever,” Orozco said.
