CravenMorehead: Would have been nice if they had nabbed him BEFORE he tried to actually detonate the bomb. Had he not farked it up this would have been a very different day for us.


When the FBI is involved they provide fake components so there's no chance of that.

cman: 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?


nope. once they hate Obama, they hate everything he does. no matter what it is. if he pets his dog, it's a photo op, he hates dogs. I'm sure some of them think Obama's gay and his kids are just political props so he looks good for the camera.

Wait. If you wanted to "strike at the heart of the nation's financial system", why would you blow up the FED? Aren't they doing a good enough job at it?

urban.derelict: 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?

/does this event cause Congress to freeze any pending sunset clauses in legislation that otherwise would have expired at the stroke of midnight on new years eve?

mizchief: 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?

They did. We know it as 9/11


Pretty much true.

Should't the supplier/LEO have to prove that the suspect would have done this without being prompted to do so ?

If there is a tard in the pond who barely needs incentive to jump on board a chance to blow up somebody's shiat i've got no problem with the USA SuperHero Teams trolling him. It's one more dickhead off the streets, on the radar and heading toward prison. Adios, arsehole. Life is sweet in AmericaVille and you could have had it good. But nooooooo, you had to monkey with the monkey. Off to the zoo with you!

Hat's off the heroes who keep us safe, fat and happy in America. Sincere thanks. I love you.

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.


Sure it was. He would have found someone to provide a real bomb at some point.

I guess white knighting a terrorist cool if it helps get the white back into the White House.

According to the reports, Quazi Muslim traveled here intended to commit a terrorist attack and immediately started asking around for contacts and support. Some of the people he asked were FBI informants who diverted him and built a case that will get him locked up for life. I see no problem with this whatsoever.

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!

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.


Explain exactly which "liberty" of yours was trampled today.

If necessary, use the doll to point out where the bad justice man touched you.

JusticeandIndependence: Rich Cream: JusticeandIndependence: Rich Cream: That was some terrible English and that makes me think it wasn't written by anyone at CNN.

/inert explosives?

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.


Point, please? If they're inert, they're not explosive.

Ahh, got it. Sorry carry on.


How about ammonium nitrate that's absorbed enough water that it can't explode? It's inert, and yet it's an explosive.

No idea. I'd hope so. In an ideal world, they'd have records of every exchange that took place with him and they'd be entered into evidence. Like I said though, no idea how these things actually work.

I understand how the FBI functions in the Department of Justice.

Christ almighty you Farkers are sensitive.

Agents of the FBI lured some moron into going along with a stupid fake bombing plot. Not like they weren't operating before (and won't be operating after) the Obama administration to bring down potential terrorists. "On his watch" the potential idiot terrorist was foiled.

lordaction: I'm sure Obama personally did this himself, just like he killed Osama. LIberals are really reaching now. They have been watching this guy for months and arrest him the day after the debates....right. This is why Obama is dangerous, he turns everything into politics instead of just focusing on doing the right thing.

hairywoogit: This is essentially why terrorists don't really scare me. The vast majority of them are uneducated idiots. The really smart ones direct the idiots, and end up with Bond-Villain-esque results half the time.


My theory is this. You are Al Quadea. You have a smart guy who you have been bringing up through the ranks in Kerplakistan. The type of guy who when you get on the ground, in a few weeks can put together an actual workable operation. He is bright, resourceful, and has a good, logical head on his shoulders where he isn't going to fall for the first guy off the boat who says he can sell him a truck full of plastic explosives or whatever, and also is level headed enough to keep his cool and carry through with an operation.

So you go, "hey, this guy is our next big hope. If anyone can pull it off, its him". You give him a wad of cash to get his operation going, and get him into the country.

So not wanting to screw things up, and actually execute on the plan right, the guy establishes a cover, tries to blend in.......and then being an intelligent guy with a good head on his shoulders, quickly realizes that blowing up a bus load of nuns will in the grand scheme of things, accomplish nothing aside from maybe his old village getting a couple of tomahawks lobbed its way.

So he takes his money, settles down, opens a falafel stand, finds himself a nice girl, and that is that.

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

Slartibartfaster: 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 ?


Essentially, the FBI avoids entrapment charges by making sure the bad guy initiates actions. He starts saying saying he is interested in being a terrorist. FBI plant says "Allahu Akhbar!" He says he wants to blow shiate up. FBI plant says "We Have Bombs!" He says I want to buy the stuff for a bomb. FBI plant says "Give us money, we get you bombs!" He then assembles the parts, and tries to push the button. FBI says "Gotcha!"

The point is, at all points, he was initiating the actions. Entrapment is when the person did not display inclination, and was prodded or lead into it, aka "You look bored. Wanna gimme 20 bucks for a bj?" "NO!" "Aw, come on, 10 bucks!" "NO!" "OK, 5 bucks and a cuppa coffee..." "OH, ok..." "Gotcha for soliciting a prostitute!" would be pure entrapment.
 
2012-10-17 06:04:47 PM

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.

You'd think he'd spend some time learning just what the bank does and what would happen if he carried out his plan. Then again I suspect intellectual inquiry is not his strong suit.

And not a single fark was given about the fate of Quasi Shakafakebombalama Terrorist Guy.

The point in your life when you try to buy explosives to destroy buildings full of innocent people, coerced or not, is the point at which American society says "fark you, rot in jail."

Don't like it? Move to some shiat hole third world country that is more tolerant of bombing civilians. There are still plenty of those places left in the world, if that's what you really want out of your society.

I recall reading somewhere that a lot of terrorist organizations have had a problem with this, actually. The guys with the real brains tend to go native. In addition, being out on the sharp end tends create appreciable attrition, so they keep the really smart guys way the hell back where they are controllable and subject to reinforcing programming 24/7.

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.
 
2012-10-17 06:12:13 PM
Its a good thing all these terrorists are too stupid to google how to make explosives themselves.
