Are you serious? of course we know that not every muslim is a terrorist. But if you look at whats going on in France you would see that all of the muslims want to overrun us. France has already warned the U.S.

Not all muslins want to bomb the west. The extremists of which every race/religion has want to but not the majority. Wake up people.

Back during the days of the Barbary Pirates, the Marines would take the dead Pirates, who were muslim btw, and place them in barrels of lard and then after about 48 hours they would leave them where the other (muslim) pirates would find them.

What a fun time back then, the Barbary States took christian slaves and worked them to death and the US was profiting from the trade and import of slaves from every quarter of the world.

We all had so much in common back then.

Maybe they went through those methods to try and see if he was really acting alone. That there weren`t more people involved.

If he was really in contact with Jihadists in Pakistan, and talking to them about wanting to be involved in "Violent Jihad" as the FBI claimed, they should have been able to arrest him for conspiracy to commit an act of terror without going through the elaborate sting.

"Somehow, I don`t think people would be nearly as accepting of these tactics if he had been an angsty white kid who wanted to set off a bomb at his school."

I would be. I don`t care what race, religion, creed or colour the person is. Also i don`t think these tactics were that bad. They provided him with a fake bomb, i`m sure they closely monitored everything. Probably the only reason they did it this way was so that the kid wouldn`t lawyer up and say "oh it was a friend and he was just joking LOLZ!"

So, CrakrJak, the end always justifies the means? I`m not trying to say this kid wasn`t potentially dangerous, but the lengths to which the US government has abandoned the very principles that make this country a bastion of freedom in the name of fighting the war on terror is extremely disturbing.

Somehow, I don`t think people would be nearly as accepting of these tactics if he had been an angsty white kid who wanted to set off a bomb at his school.

Entrapment

By the definition of entrapment he was not tricked into doing it. Alternative definitions are that an agent "induces a person to commit an offense which the person would otherwise have been unlikely to commit."

He looked for help, they gave him a fake bomb. They didn`t induce him to commit a crime he was unlikely to commit. He was looking for help to commit it.

Attn: This is not entrapment, the undercover FBI agents gave him multiple opportunities to opt out of his decision, and even recommended he prayed instead. They did not give him the idea or provide any support for it beyond what he had himself. Therefore, no entrapment.

@SlothOfDoom, It`s only 1 minute, what did you expect? The link to CNN`s coverage is about 6 minutes and has a long article too.

>I really liked that the short video thanks Muslims who are normal folks, a nice touch, I hope everyone noticed it :)

@Ajikan, the bomb was a fake BECAUSE of the FBI. Left alone, this man would have bought a REAL bomb, and used it to really kill infedels. Get it? It`s not "fbi lies" it`s the police doing their job, and doing it VERY well!

The FBI didn`t stand of a street corner saying "Psst, hey buddy, wanna buy a bomb and kill some infedels?" Mohamed Mohamud was actively seeking terrorist connections with a plan to use a bomb to kill non-believers. He planned this for years!

That he was stopped, that no one was injured is a blessing.

I`m tired of people referring to Islamic extremeists [aka terrorists] as though that is the entire muslim community. I know plenty of muslims and there are plenty more who definitely aren`t going around being hateful or blowing stuff up. That`d be like me saying all Christians are radicals and crazies because that group in the midwest killed a ton of police. People need to shut up and stop being so freaking stupid.

I hope that `Bam!` at the end was someone shooting this guy in the head.

The operative word here is `Ideology`, The muslims of the world need to change their hateful, Sexist, Anti-Semitic, Anti-Christian, Isolationist, Jihadist and 10th century assbackward ideology.

I believe that it can be done, And it should start by telling Imam Rauf to go build his mosque elsewhere. Saudi prince Alwaleed, Has came forward and said, "I am not for putting a mosque there", If he can say that why can`t others ?

"if he were a white Christian and tried to blow up a Muslim festival, it would be front-page, 24/7 coverage for a week"

Well, if it were a "white christian" it would be some thing different and new... NEWSworthy. It happens, but not that often. Muslim attacks have become common.

sbeelz: It doesn`t change the fact this guy wanted to blow up a Christmas tree lighting, The FBI doesn`t encourage illegal activities, It stops them. I`m glad this maniac was found out and stopped before he acquired some real explosives.

@gbrzeatetee- I think the point was that the guy was already planning to blow up a building, and the FBI`s proven that he would have done it.

They didn`t stop a terrorist attack- they encouraged and helped to plan a fake terrorist attack and then stopped it. Agent provocateurs are not a legitimate means of enforcing the law. FBI = thought police.

I doubt any agencies would report to the media of stopping any bomb plots or any other type of terrorist attack...

FBI didn`t really "stop" a car bomb plot. Some random dude said in chat rooms "id like to kill infidels but idk how, halp pl0x" and then the FBI said "sure d00d, here`s a bomb, do what you want with it" and then when the guy wanted to make it explode he was like "omg why it dont assplode???" and the FBI was like "LOLOLOL YHBT"

So yeah, the FBI gave a fake bomb to a guy and it didn`t explode. Great job keeping us safe guys.
