    Disagree.... unless the Fbi said "you should blow up the bridge instead" etc. They would be entrapment. Saying "I can get explosives" is not. They could have always said ."nah, we just want the smoke bombs"..... but the didn't. Not entrapment

    Good catch on the FBI's part.

    Wait - those guys can't be terrorists.

    They're not brown-skinned, middle-eastern, Mohammed worshipping, camel-jockeys wearing towels on their heads, and burlap dresses.

    Surely there's a mistake.

    I just got home and haven't really read much into this story, but at least one of them was an Occupy Cleveland protester.
    I seriously hope the guy on the top left was going to do the wiring on the bomb, his eyes are looking in different directions.

    sigh. violence is never a legitimate method for protesting this sort of thing. i hope they get the maximum punishment.

    Seriously, I don't see why a few nut-jobs getting caught doing something foolish has any direct reflection on the OWS movement though.

    Just because some men rape doesn't mean all men are rapists.

    I would bet the FBI is now investigating the Occupy Cleveland group.

    Time will tell but you can bet the lawyers will raise the entrapment argument.

    The would be negligent if they didn't. However I don't think entrapment fits here unless they activley pushed these people to commit a crime they otherwise would never have considered. Which will be a hard argument, given thier origional plan.
