The owner of the limousine company that killed 20 people in New York last weekend was an FBI informant who helped carry out two big entrapment operations against Muslims after 9/11. Prior to being recruited by the FBI, he was caught helping people cheat on DMV tests. Before that, he was arrested for murder in Pakistan but escaped after someone bribed police. FBI officially permits its informants to commit 5000+ crimes a year. But running an illegal limousine service that kills 20 people was probably not pre-approved. Actually, the FBI provided luxury cars to help get this business started in 2008.
