Judge Andrew Napolitano has stated that 17 of 20 terrorist plots against Americans were created by the Feds (US government agents), but in fact, 18 false flags were instigated by the government.
“Can the federal government take credit for saving us from a plot of its own creation?
Has the federal government kept us safe or does it just want us to think it has kept us safe?
17 out of the 20 plots to kill Americans in the past 10 years have been interrupted by the Feds because they were created by the Feds. The other three attempted attacks were stopped by diligent Americans.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano is right as usual; however, he needs to adjust his numbers a little. The underwear bomber was indeed thwarted by diligent civilians, but it was instigated by federal agents. You can read Kurt Haskell’s underwear bomber testimony at his own blog. Kurt Haskell, a lawyer, describes how a plain-clothes official forced the underwear bomber on the plane without a passport, against the wishes of airport personnel.
So actually, 18 of 20 potential acts of terrorism were instigated by US federal agents. Why would they do this? One can only guess:
- To justify their budget.
- To justify their existence.
- To keep the population afraid because a fearful population is more willing to give up their rights.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
