  •  The FBI's kid-glove treatment. (11+ / 0-)

    That comment particularly reminds me of observations that historians have made about the FBI --

    The Bureau tends to infiltrate extremist groups that they like in order to temper them and restrain them from crime (eg the Ku Klux Klan), while they infiltrate extremist groups that they don't like in order to provoke and incite them, thus justifying a crackdown (eg the Black Panthers).

    It seems that this unnamed entity that contemplated assassinating OWS participants may have gotten the former, kid-glove treatment.
