    Lawyer says suspect in Oregon bomb plot was entrapped

    Lawyer says suspect in Oregon bomb plot was entrapped
    By Teresa Carson | Reuters – 1/11/2013

    An FBI affidavit filed in the case said Mohamud was taken into custody after he tried to use a cell phone to trigger what he believed was a car bomb but was actually a harmless device supplied by agents posing as operatives for Islamist extremists.

    But defense attorney Stephen Sady argued on Friday his client would never have carried out the bombing on his own.

    "Mohamed was no terrorist," Sady said. "The FBI just went too far. They created a crime that would have never happened without them."

    Entrapment? Right. Because trying to detonate a bomb is analogous to Joe Schmo buying a watch that "fell off the back of a truck." I don't buy the argument that anyone would only push the trigger on a bomb designed to kill people just because they had the opportunity.

    Are you kidding me? What else can this moron's lawyer say? This is a non-story if I've ever read one. Any sane person, would have reported, to federal/state authorities, being contacted by these "terrorists", not simply "hang out with them" and "play along".

    FBI stopped Portland bomb suspect from taking job before sting
    By Daniel Tencer
    Sunday, November 28th, 2010


    The Times reports:

    The FBI¡¯s surveillance started in August 2009 after agents intercepted his e-mails with a man he had met in Oregon who had returned to the Middle East, according to a law enforcement official who described the man as a recruiter for terrorism. According to the affidavit, the man had moved to Yemen and then northwest Pakistan, a center of terrorism activity.

    According to the New York Times, the FBI placed Mohamud on a terror watch list, making it impossible for the young man to fly to Alaska to take a summer job. It was only after Mohamud was blocked from taking the job in June of this year that the FBI -- which had been monitoring him since 2009 -- made contact with the suspect.

    Later in June, aware of Mr. Mohamud¡¯s frustrated attempts to receive training as a jihadist overseas, an undercover agent first made contact with him, posing as an associate of the man in Pakistan. On the morning of July 30, the F.B.I. first met with Mr. Mohamud in person to initiate the sting operation.
    The revelation adds fuel to the fire of critics who argue the FBI's sting operation manufactured -- rather than stopped -- a domestic terrorist


    FBI stopped Portland bomb suspect from taking job before sting | The Raw Story

    The FBI blocked Mohamud the chance of making a living, led him to the wrong way. Then gave him a bomb. If they gave him a real bomb, then we would have seen another OKC bombing or 911 attack. This time they gave him a fake one to show FBI is at working. Or rather, to create a terror case. They got everything prepared, then gave him a phone button to push at. That’s the story.

    They didn't block him from getting a job. They blocked him from getting on an airplane. He could have taken a bus. He could have driven himself. He could have gotten a ride from a friend or family member. The reality here is that he was on a watch list for a reason. If the simple act of losing a job is all it took for him to go all Jihad on us, then it wasn't entrapment. Let's not forget, he pushed a button that he thought would kill people. He wasn't tricked. He knew what it would do. He chose to do it. He will lose his case.

    Entrapment has been the defense in every recent FBI terrorism bust. What else are you going to say?

    A lawyer says his client shouldn't go to jail.

    Only see that in.... well, every case in every court in history.

    What a defense. If he did as you suggested, then he would be blocked from taking a bus, blocked to drive..... Otherwise, there was no meaning that FBI blocking him getting on an airplane. I have a question. If school teacher train students to do terrorist work, what will you do to the teacher? He will be sued. That's what FBI had done in those sting case. And you blame the kid who following the instruction. Why didn't you teach him something good to lead him to a right way?

    Shocked I say, completely shocked to discover that the US government would deceive or entrap in any way!
