ManateeGag: cman: fark you and all of your bullshiat partisanship.

was that aimed at anyone in particular, or the whole thread?


Headline and all the assholes in this thread.

It's good that a terrorist plot was averted. If you like Obama or not, his guys were on the ball. Can't we just leave it at that?

Obama is only responsible when something goes wrong.

False flag to take Benghazi story from the headlines. I'm not buying it.
Right.
Some 21 year old Islamic foreigner comes to america just to blow up the FED.

If they wanted to make the story more believable they should have used any ordinary american.

The "explosives that he allegedly sought and attempted to use had been rendered inoperable by law enforcement and posed no threat to the public," according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch.

Couldn't you guys have used something that wasn't originally actual explosives? I mean, I'm sure you do good work and all, but how embarrassing would THAT be, you know?

Snapper Carr: As I understand it, they avoid entrapment by repeatedly trying to talk the suspect out of it (I'm not sure how earnestly they try, mind you). Whether or not he goes ahead with it is left up to his choice


If they provide the materials - and the materials are not capable of the crime - is he guilty of using known incapable tools provided by the arresting forces ? What crime was committed by the perp that the supplier did not also commit ? (neither actually committed the crime, it is based on intent, but ... are they not both showing intent ?)

Thought crime ?

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Ego edo infantia cattus: Mind of the North Star: Treygreen13: The FBI is now the Obama Administration?

I see your point, which is why I don't understand the "Libya scandal" in the first place. However, do you actually think people would not have blamed Obama, if this bombing wasn't thwarted ?

I'm fairly certain fox news would blame him if a dog farted in Portugal.

MR. SPEAKER! A DOG FARTED IN PORTUGAL!

SHUT.

DOWN.

GOVERNMENT.

Gyrfalcon: rufus-t-firefly: hatelabs: The GOP will say it was a liberal staged attack to that this adminstration could thwart it.... Because making Obama a 1 term president is all that's important.

Maybe the Republicans staged it so that it looked like the liberals staged it.

Maybe anarchists staged it to look like Republicans staged it to look like liberals staged it to look like terrorists did it.

You've never heard of an inert gas?

in·ert [in-urt, ih-nurt]
adjective
1.
having no inherent power of action, motion, or resistance ( opposed to active): inert matter.
2.
Chemistry . having little or no ability to react, as nitrogen that occurs uncombined in the atmosphere.
3.
Pharmacology . having no pharmacological action, as the excipient of a pill.
4.
inactive or sluggish by habit or nature.

Marcus Aurelius: Translation: "We trolled this stupid loser mofo for all he was worth. He fell for the whole thing from start to finish."


From NBC: The complaint said Nafis wrote a statement claiming responsibility for what he thought would be the Fed attack, saying he wanted to "destroy America" by going after its economy. He referred to "our beloved Sheikh Osama bin Laden" in the statement....The pair parked the van by the Fed, got out and walked to a hotel, where Nafis recorded a video statement he meant to be released after the attack. He then tried to detonate the purported bomb, officials said.

Somehow I don't think recording a post-bombing video says "I'm being trolled."
 
2012-10-17 05:44:56 PM

bhcompy: 12349876: bhcompy: It wasn't really prevention. This guy was given a fake bomb to "detonate" to prove guilt. It would be prevention if the FBI Jack Bauer'd the bomb with 3 seconds left.

If the government didn't find him and troll him, he might have been able to get a real one through some other means.

We'll never know, will we.

/of course the justice system will be okay with this bit of entrapment because who the fark needs civil liberties


Yeah, the oh so important civil liberty of being able to buy explosives and try to blow shiat up. That's a real farking keeper for a free society. Woe is me at the loss of such liberty.

Oddly enough, you still have the freedom to not blow things up. This comes with the added benefit of not going to jail for attempting to blow shiat up. Yay freedom!

21 year old perp of middle-eastern descent... did a well-dressed man sweet talk the ticket agent into allowing him onto an international flight from Amsterdam without a passport, like the christmas bomber? Did anyone claim he was a refugee from Africa?

So I guess obama grabbed a nightstick, some cuffs and handled things. Just like he handled bin laden. Shame he wasn't able to handle the terrorists that overran our embassy, killed 4 Americans and slaughtered an Ambassador. Oh right that wasn't terrorists, it was angry movie critics. That was Hillary's fault anyway, stupid girls.

hopefully, it is never the case that a clever bomberman, who buys all his materials from the feds, then secretly does whatever needs to be done to make them work... while the feds are waiting for him to set off the dummy explosion... boom.

I assume they gave him materials that could not have been exploded whatsoever. like, it was 1000 lbs of fertilizer, which mysteriously had no nitrogen in it, or whatever makes certain fertilizers prone to bomb making

This just proves Obama is weak, because Quasi Muslim thought he could come over here and bomb us.

Romney will be so strong and emit his Alpha Male Private Equity smell so the terrorists will stay home and hide under their beds.

vpb: Marcus Aurelius: The defendant thought he was striking a blow to the American economy. He thought he was directing confederates and fellow believers. At every turn, he was wrong, and his extensive efforts to strike at the heart of the nation's financial system were foiled by effective law enforcement

Translation: "We trolled this stupid loser mofo for all he was worth. He fell for the whole thing from start to finish."

That's fine. The intent is what matters.


There's also the minor detail that the defendant didn't have the slightest chance in hell of accomplishing his evil deeds without federal assistance.

Also, FTA:

Paul J. Browne, deputy commissioner of the New York City Police Department, released the following statement on the alleged plot:
"After 11 years without a successful attack, it's understanding if the public becomes complacent. But that's a luxury law enforcement can't afford."


fark you. You actually have to manufacture terrorist attacks now in order to keep yourselves relevant?

This thread proves there is no crime in existence that some Farker won't call either 1) entrapment or 2) thoughtcrime. It should get its own name, like Godwin's Law or Poe's Law or Cole's Law.

If someone walks up, puts a gun to your head and pulls the trigger, but the gun jams, is it still attempted murder? Does that change if the gun was sabotaged before it was given to him?

The question of the supplier committing a crime is trickier I guess, but no. They're not both showing intent as the supplier has no intention of the planned crime actually being executed. No idea how that works for conspiracy though.

LoneVVolf: Funny how all these terrorist attacks that get thwarted end up being some schlub the FBI conned into buying fake explosives and pressing a button. Seems to happen every time citizens get uppity about sacrificing more and more individual freedoms in the name of security. The real disturbing question here, is when people stop buying into the soft scare tactics, are they going to let one of these go further to keep us ducking for cover?

The price of liberty is that bad people have an easier opportunity to do bad things. I'm okay with that price. Hell, the founders of this nation were, too.
