New evidence backs up Jeremy Hammond’s story that he was set up by the FBI and the hack of Stratfor was not even his idea in the first place. The FBI previously claimed it was unaware of potential computer hacking until it was “too late”, but now we know that was a lie. The FBI was not only aware of the attacks, one of its informants, with their guidance, was encouraging the attacks for which Hammond was prosecuted. That informant’s name was Hector Xavier Monsegur aka “Sabu” and the person he was encouraging was Jeremy Hammond.

What’s more interesting is why the FBI allowed its tool Sabu and LulzSec to hack Stratfor and release embarrassing intelligence documents through Wikileaks. What might the motivation be for the US Government?

The Justice Department indicted Matthew Keys, the deputy social media editor for Reuters.com, for conspiring with members of Anonymous and giving them login information so they could “hack into and alter” the Los Angeles Times‘ website.
The indictment should raise suspicion, however, because Hector Xavier Monsegur or ”Sabu,” who the FBI flipped and used to catch and, to some extent, entrap LulzSec hackers, is likely involved in the indictment.
