NYU Report Criticizes “Government-Manufactured” Terror Cases


New York University’s Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, profiling three controversial terrorism cases in New York and New Jersey, criticizes the “myth” of the homegrown threat of Islamic radicalization and says that “government-manufactured” terrorism cases threaten human rights, reports Courhouse News Service.

New York police spokesman Paul Browne dismissed the report’s “biased polemics.” All three cases in “Targeted and Entrapped: Manufacturing the ‘Homegrown Threat’ in the United States” relied on evidence from FBI informants that recruited Muslims to shoot, bomb, or destroy targets selected by the agents. Two of the widely known cases included are known as the Newburgh Four and the Fort Dix Five.
