Did The FBI Stage A Nazi Rally?

It sure sounds like it.

A paid FBI informant was the man behind a neo-Nazi march through the

streets of Parramore that stirred up anxiety in Orlando’s black

community and fears of racial unrest that triggered a major police

mobilization.

That revelation came Wednesday in an unrelated federal court

hearing and has prompted outrage from black leaders, some of whom

demanded an investigation into whether the February 2006 march was,

itself, an event staged by law-enforcement agencies.

The

FBI would not comment on what it knew about the involvement of its

informant,39-year-old David Gletty of Orlando, in the neo-Nazi event.

In court Wednesday, an FBI agent said the bureau has paid its informant

at least $20,000 during the past two years.
