Officials blame outsiders for violence in Minnesota but contradict one another on who is responsible

Source: Washington Post

Leaders at the federal, state and local levels said large numbers of outsiders had seized upon protests begun by Minnesotans to advance their own political agendas.

But the officials offered little evidence to show who was responsible and contradicted one another on who was to blame.

They variously assigned responsibility for the escalating violence to far-right nationalists, left-wing radicals, drug cartels and possibly foreign agents in statements, news conferences and presidential tweets.

2. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey...

.... suggested that far-right white supremacists and perhaps organized drug cartels were chiefly responsible.

“We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out-of-state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region,” he said.

Walz suggested that U.S. intelligence agencies were providing the state with information about who was behind the protests, implying that the National Security Agency, which monitors foreign governments and terrorist organizations, might be playing a role.

U.S. officials dismissed those claims, noting that, by law, the NSA does not monitor domestic political activities.

7. Regardless of where he's from...

This guy is not a protester, he's an agent provocateur:

And i'm guessing similar things are happening in other cities as well.
