The Washington Post published an extensive article on May 29 about confessed FBI informant Eldawoody, who was accused by Siraj’s family and supporters of goading his victim into a terror plot Siraj had neither the means nor the know-how to carry out.
The article further said, "The case in New York isn’t the only one. Two informers played a role in the recent case of the young Muslim men accused of plotting to kill soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J. One of the young men was recorded telling the informer he was at his service. Later the informer volunteered to obtain machine guns and heavier arms. In Miami, an FBI informer posing as a member of al-Qaeda gave a group of men military boots and cell phones, promised weapons and suggested their first target be a Miami FBI office. In Lodi, Calif., a federal informer who lied about seeing an al-Qaeda leader in the area helped to convict a 23-year-old of training at a terrorism camp."
Defense lawyers in a number of other terrorism suspect cases accused informants of solely seeking financial boon by creating so-called terrorists that did not exist.
According to court records, Eldawoody was paid $100,000 over a period of 3 years.
Since Siraj’s conviction, Eldawoody has his rent covered and receives a monthly stipend of $3,200.
According to The Washington Post, a police spokesman indicated the direct payments to Eldawoody would likely continue "indefinitely."
So remember folks, that smelly misfit next to you with the dynamite trying to talk you into blowing up a public building; THAT is the FBI informant.
Treat him or her appropriately.
