  • The Terror Factory

    From ig Publishing, a new book by Trevor Aaronson on the FBI’s manufactured cases of terrorism. Called The Terror Factory, the book expands on Aaronson’s award winning article published in Mother Jones. With a fellowship from the University of California-Berkeley’s Investigative Reporting Program, and a grant from the Fund for Investigative Journalism, Aaronson exposed how the FBI concocted schemes, using informants to recruit the schemers, and made it appear the FBI was fulfilling its mandate to prevent terrorist attacks in the USA.  Aaronson also talked about his investigation on This American Life, in August.

    The Terror Factory will come out in January, 2013.
