Ahmadullah Niazi, a regular at an Irvine mosque, befriended Craig Morteilh, who presented himself as interested in converting to Islam. Their conversations began around spirituality, but quickly Morteilh began discussing his access to illegal weapons, and recruiting people in a terrorist plot. The mosque obtained a restraining order against Morteilh, and Niazi reported him to the FBI. Within months Niazi was the one arrested on trumped up charges.
An undercover TSA agent told a JetBlue ticket agent that he needed to get a package to Boston that day and would pay the agent $100.00 for helping. The agent took the $100, put it in his pocket and proceeded to follow the unknown person's instructions. The ticket agent chose a passenger's name at random, which just happened to be an unaccompanied minor, and the package went through the screening process with no problems. Although the package was harmless, the TSA pulled the package just before being loaded onto the aircraft.
The City of Austin has a problem: fewer people are driving while legally drunk, causing DWI ticket revenues to plummet.

Ladies could help fund the city budget after only one drink with a BAC of 0.05%, whereas most men would need at least two.

We already have roving wire taps, GPS tracking devises and surveillance drones keeping a close eye on suspected terrorists in the Homeland. Is it really such a leap to think they might embed an undercover agent in your social network? And is it so difficult to believe that agent might sleep around to get close to people of interest? I say no. And I’m prepared to take you down a rabbit hole that will have you casting a suspicious glance at your significant other.
Travis Irvine creates a comical "interview" of the Occupiers on Wall Street. Towards the end of his 5 minute clip he runs into a Government agent, acting as a typical government agent would. A good laugh and with a bit of a scary ending.
