How to run a terrorist snitch

Submitted by admin on Sat, 01/08/2011 - 01:36

Interesting read from the Danger Room blog on how the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigation Service) suggests the FBI should run there snitches.

An ideal source, it noted, was the same for counterterrorists as for terrorists: someone disciplined, capable of keeping secrets, and highly motivated.

The best snitches, NCIS argued, have some kind of anxiety about their identities. Western converts to Islam fit the bill, as do Muslims living in or educated in Western countries. That’s true, not just because “there have been a number of successful operations using converts of Western ethnicity” — demonstrating their value to terror groups — but because they’ll feel like they’ve got the most to prove.
