Cork on Fork: Slartibartfaster: isn't that entrapment ?

According to the criminal complaint, this guy actually searched out and contacted someone else to try and get their assistance with a plan he already had. The person he contacted happened to be an FBI informant.

Entrapment would be if the FBI contacted someone and convinced them to commit a crime they would never otherwise commit, and then arrested them when they finally said ok.


i don't know if "I want to blow shiat up" really counts as a plan. I don't see how this can be a crime unless you make buying clay from the FBI a crime.

Treygreen13: Counter_Intelligent: Treygreen13: The FBI is now the Obama Administration?

Isn't the FBI part of the executive branch, at least?

I guess now that the Navy Seals are part of the Executive Branch, why not the FBI as well?


Am I missing irony orrrrr? Cause the US military and the FBI both fall under the executive branch - the military being part of the DoD and the FBI DoJ.

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 dude tried to detonate the bomb multiple times. At some point, as convenient as it is for the Man...well, there are real terrorists, too. Shiatty terrorists, but this guy deserved to be arrested, and needs to live in a nice padded cell for a lifetime or two.

Gyrfalcon: PanicMan: 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.

It all makes perfect sense. Almost TOO much sense. But that's only what you want us to think. Or is it??????

I want you to think whatever you think they think you don't want them to think you think.


Oh no. I'm not falling for that. I'm not going to think what they think they want me to think and er..l mean I'm not going to let them know I think what they... nevermind I'm gonna go get a beer.

LineNoise: So basically you are just left with the morons to do your dirty work, and they aren't going to get very far.


Yeah, but it's even worse than the way you outlined it, because most of the really committed jihadis have an extremely poor education, because they were indoctrinated in absurdly religious schools. Picture the most extreme backward Christian homeschoolers, with their "evilution" and 6,000 year earth crap. This is way beyond that. They believe devoutly that Allah will reward them with virgins in the afterlife, and they have no idea what the difference between current and voltage is or nitrates or nitrites or radioactivity or explosives. They could be intelligent, but they are so backward and so steeped in nonsense that real knowledge won't stick to their brains. So trying to teach them about advanced weapons and bomb making is farking hopeless. They end up going to an FBI informant because there's no one else in their network who isn't completely over their head when it comes to blowing shiat up. They are probably puzzled and confused even watching an episode of mythbusters.

It's weird trying to teach someone really simple basic stuff when they come from a culture that completely embraces credulity and ignorance. You have a lot of adults in places like Bangladesh or Sudan or Indonesia that can't grasp stuff that 6 year olds in China, America, Spain, India, etc have no problem with. It's not everyone, and has absolutely nothing to do with race.

Alonjar: Its a good thing all these terrorists are too stupid to google how to make explosives themselves.


Quality explosives are very hard to make safely. Large scale explosives are extremely hard to make without getting caught, as most of the really effective stuff that can be had on the cheap (fertilizer, etc) is now watched. In addition, most people who attempt to make bombs are taking a very high risk of turning themselves into charcoal briquettes or red paste via some form of manufacturing mistake, thus morons who attempt to buy or procure bombs via the 'nets.

Spaced Cowboy: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: bhcompy: 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.

Quote of the day.

Except that he has no idea what liberty was supposedly intruded upon and is simply trying to find a way to make this some sort of Tea Party Obama stohl mah liburty screed.

You never had the liberty to go around trying to do illegal shiat without getting your dumb ass arrested. If I go around asking a bunch of people for drugs, and one of those people is a law enforcement agent, am I somehow immune to prosecution when they arrange a fake drug sale to bust me? No, and it has farkall to do with personal liberty and everything to do with not being a god damn idiot intent on breaking the law.


So people should be arrested just for wanting drugs? That is basically your argument. Seems like maybe we should spend our man power looking for people who actually have the drugs/explosives/etc. rather than setting up people who apparently can't do it on their own anyway.

worked for the FED back in the mid 90's - was told there was never an outside attempt on a FED RESERVE - there was once an employee that dared another to hack it & take $1 mil even, just to show that he could. after he did, the FED agreed to not prosecute as long as he showed them how he did it.

You don't even have to ask for drugs to get arrested. An undercover cop can offer you drugs and if you accept you can get arrested. Same with prostitution. Somehow that's not entrapment.

Where did the guy learn how to construct a bomb? I'm assuming he had a test bomb then ramped up the scale (which would be where the gov't tainted his components).

But he still knew how to make a bomb and a detonator.

They do the same thing with pedophiles, i don't have any problem with this strategy. Because if the FBI doesn't answer their outreach, someone will, and that someone may not be posing as a 12 year old girl or that person may not be selling playdough.

Try again, princess. I bolded the part that you failed hard on. Just wanting drugs/explosives is slightly different than actively seeking them out from undercover law enforcement.

I highly doubt this guy was just sitting around minding his own business when the FBI called him up and said "yo dawg, you want some explosives?"

tricycleracer: When the pair arrived at the warehouse, Nafis began putting together what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb inside the van. Then they drove together to the target: The New York Federal Reserve Bank. As they drove, he armed the purported by putting together the detonator and the explosives, the criminal complaint says.

The van was then parked next to the bank. The pair went to a nearby hotel, where Nafis apparently recorded a video statement meant to be shown to the American public in connection with the attack.

"We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom," he said, according to the criminal complaint.

He then tried, several times unsuccessfully, to detonate the device, which was actually inert explosives.

Nafis was then arrested.

This is like Chris Hansen telling you to bring condoms and Smirnoff Ice with you to the 12 year old girl's house. You just shot reasonable doubt in the head and are now throwing grenades at your entrapment and coercion defense.


Agreed. You can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?

The average violently venting person would stop all communication with the connection after realizing they were serious, a minor amount would get some more info then call the proper athorities, then theres violent individuals like this terrorist that want to walk the walk.

Read the criminal complaint here: cbsnewyork.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/nafis-complaint.pdf

Obviously, that is only one side of what happened... but based on the allegations, this went far beyond just "wanting" to do something. He formulated a specific plan and was recruiting people to make it happen. All the FBI did (according to the info. in the complaint) was provide him with (he thought) the materials he otherwise didn't know how to obtain (but surely could have with more time/effort).
 
2012-10-17 06:32:19 PM
While it is, indeed, a very strange moment to try and do this, it is also the most fortuitous, if it would've performed right.

Imagine the unbelievable shiatstorm it would've become if the bomb would've blown up: First off, there goes the election for Obama; second, there would be panic in the streets because people would actually be too afraid to vote.

If anything, it was the good timing to sow chaos.

astouffer: Some guy says yes so the FBI says well I know a guy that can build the bomb for you, lets get this ball rolling.



If you would RTFA you'd know that the guy built the bomb. All he needed help with was getting a hold of the explosive materials. He put the bomb together. He parked it in a van outside the Fed. He recorded a video talking about why he was doing it. He then tried to set it off.

All this @sshole needed was the explosives part. If he hadn't stumbled into an FBI informant, he probably would have succeeded. So fark him and good for the FBI. It's also a bonus to national security for these d!ckheads to be scared shiatless that the dude they met at their neighborhood mosque might be on the FBI's payroll. Kind of makes it hard to put this shiat together.
