Savage Pigwatch: NY Post Spins Hizbullah-NYC Yarn

Here's a letter to the New York Post;
The worst piece of paper on the east coast;
Matter of fact the whole state's.
Forty cents
in New York City;
Fifty cents elsewhere;

It makes no goddamn sense at all.

Public Enemy, "Letter to the New York Post"

On Tuesday, New York's famously absurdist government propaganda organ, The Post, published an uncorroborated piece of stenography under the guise of news. The bilge - headlined - "N.Y. HEZBOLLAH HUNT," cited unnamed and uncorroborated sources with the FBI, Justice Department, law enforcement, and 'intelligence' and claimed:
The Hezbollah terror group... may be planning to activate sleeper cells in New York and other big cities to stage an attack as the nuclear showdown with Iran heats up, sources told The Post.
Much like Judith Miller's reporting in the lead-up to Iraq, note how Niles Lathem, the Post's propagandist, demands no proof substantiating these accusations. He just repeats ludicrus assertions as fact. As is often the case with reports like these, the absence of facts hardly matter to a Neo-Fascist media on Sam's Plantation who reprint fairy tales like these without a second though it came came from a real reporter rather than a lapdog journalist. The 'report' continues:
The FBI and Justice Department have launched urgent new probes in New York and other cities targeting members of the Lebanese terror group.

Law-enforcement and intelligence officials told The Post that about a dozen hard-core supporters of Hezbollah have been identified in recent weeks as operating in the New York area.

Sources said the activities of these New York-based operatives are being monitored by FBI counterterrorism agents as part of a nationwide effort to prevent a possible terror strike if the confrontation with Iran over its nuclear program spins out of control.
Except for the parts that the FBI is spying on innocent people, Lathem's entire report is utter bullshit. As we have written previously, the New York Pigshop - and particularly it's chief Spook, David Cohen - have long-standing and intimite ties to Uncle Sam's Secret Police and a sordid history of fabricating claims similar to this one in order to justify the Pigs' criminality. Thus, we must assume that operations undertaken by Uncle Sam's secret police also involve the NYC Pigshop and likely plans to utilize their expertise in framing people up citing its own 'secret' evidence and trumped-up anonymous sources.
