    What would a cop have to say to give you the idea that it's a good plan to pay for a blow job? I'd like a synopsis.

    But would he have??? We can only speculate, and therefore it becomes more of a gray area.

    There is a significant difference between blowing up a building and to. I am curious as to what RNYC has to say in regards to the case.

    However, whether or not this guy would have been able to locate such materials/explosives brings up a critical point; had this been a sting operation, with an attempt to infiltrate a true terrorist organization, why has it been exposed at such an early stage?

    I'm not sure, maybe I'd be drunk and horny at the time headed home. Minding my own business, not really looking for a lady of the night. When one comes up and starts talking all sorts of things. Until such point that I think "what the hell, I mean, I was going to go home and play some Halo 3 ODST but maybe I'll get gamer points for this too". Point is, the cops provide the criminal act for the purpose of getting me to commit a criminal act; which is entrapment.

    Re: Illinois man charged in plot to bomb federal office

    A Republican Congressman's office in Illinois was a secondary target of this bomber, according to an article I just read. The Congressman is Aaron Schock, the youngest Congressman currently serving (also one of the people I listed in the thread asking which members from the 'other side of the aisle' do you respect?) I wonder why this guy would be targeted?

    I guess ... makes as much sense as any of it. The whole thing is disturbing and scary.

    In my book Future Jihad: Terrorist Strategies against America (2005-2006) I clearly projected that Jihadists, individuals and cells will be mushrooming and expanding inside the United States within few years from then and that they will precisely do what they are trying to do now.

    I have also projected how large they will become, with time. It was a simple deduction: if the Government doesn’t counter this ideological growth, Jihadists will keep coming. And in fact they kept coming, spreading crossing the barriers of ethnicities, races, nationalities and geographical frontiers.

    The Jihadists committed to harm the US, and based inside our borders, are now by the hundreds. When I suggested this fact on CNN in 2006, and reiterated it on Oprah’s show so that the public realizes what is to come, I raised a few eyes brows. Now unfortunately, we are meeting the cells of Jihadism in our cities and little towns, and sadly the expectation is that we will see more, and we may unfortunately not be able to stop them all from reaching their goals.

    The North Carolina cell, the New York subway plot, the Dallas attempt, the Illinois case, added to the previous cases of the shooting of a soldier in Arkansas, the precedent New York cells, Georgia’s young Jihadists, all the way back to the infamous Virginia paintball network, if anything gives us the genome of what is morphing inside the country -- a vast body of dispersed cells with at least one binding force -- the Jihadi ideology.

    It would have been cheaper to buy him a plane ticket to Israel where he would have likely been killed by the Israelis, while trying to carry out some idiot terrorist plot.
