DO NOT, under any circumstances, cooperate with the FBI, FBI agents will lie, trick and deceive you. They will twist your words and play on your patriotism to entrap you. They will pretend to be people they are not supporters, well-wishers and friends all the while wearing wires to record your out-of-context statements to use against you. The FBI is the enemy; its a part of the problem, not the solution.

John Kiriakou
