CMP "The Newburgh Sting" DONATION
The Newburgh Sting (2014) is a documentary film about the Federal Bureau of Investigation's sting operation on four Muslim men involved in the 2009 Bronx terrorism plot. Beginning in 2008, an FBI informant, Shaheed Hussain, recorded hours of conversations with the men who were ultimately arrested and convicted of planting three non-functional bombs next to two synagogues in Riverdale, Bronx and for planning to use Stinger missiles to shoot down United States military cargo planes near Newburgh, New York.
The point of view of the documentary is that it was later brought to light that the plot with the four men who were coaxed into participating was created by the FBI. The men argue that this was a case of entrapment.
In April, 2014, the film was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film’s outreach campaign began with director David Heilbroner showing clips and testifying before a US senate briefing committee led by Dick Durbin.
Much work remains to be done: working with the House and the incoming Attorney General and having open, public discussions about the FBI's tactics.
