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.


QFT

I travel for work and I make it a point to fly on Sep 11. Why? Because I'm not afraid of a bunch of guys that can't blow their own underwear up

LucklessWonder: 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.

Jack Bauer'd isn't appropriate. Instead the fed would have to "subject the bomb to enhanced interrogation techniques" such as waterboarding with 3 seconds left.


Work one of these into the routine somehow.

I saw this on "Law and Order" a while back, so Obama had plenty of warning . . ..

It appears to be another one of many terrorist attacks masterminded by the FBI, planned by the FBI, financed by the FBI, and carried out by an FBI-recruited patsy who, on his own, would never have the means or opportunity (and he was probably coerced into motive). If I was on the jury he'd walk out a free man. Since I probably won't be, he'll spend the rest of his life in prison.

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.


I'm sure the FBI manufactured the intent, too. The so-called Sears Tower (non) Bomber was harassed by the feds for A YEAR, and they finally got him to go along with the plot after THREATENING HIS FAMILY. The only people who should be in prison are the feds.

He provided this country a great service. Continued funding for the war on terror.

Spaced Cowboy: I would suggest you wear a helmet when you post, but seems as though the damage has already been done.

You asked, in the most mindfarkingly stupid way, what the difference between thoughts and actual crimes were. Literally, that is exactly what you asked. You were summarily dismissed as a farking moron. It's too late for you to act like you have a clue now, sorry bud. Too little, too late.

So still nothing but personal attacks and now trying to make yourself feel like less of an asshole.

You asked a stunningly stupid question and got treated like an idiot for it. Welcome to Fark.

In the future, think before posting and this can all be avoided. Also, it would behoove you to put your detailed questions in the Boobies you make instead of scribbling with crayons for half a dozen posts before finally getting to your semi-coherent point and expecting everyone to know what the fark you were blabbering in the first place.


No I asked you a very simple question to prove a point, you couldn't answer it so you just blew smoke out of your ass. So i figured i would just egg you on for awhile and have some fun.

The only point you proved was that I'm far too easily amused by dolts. I mean, you actually asked me what the difference is between thinking about a crime and committing a crime and I humored you with a sarcastic response that you still failed to understand.

Shhh... [whispers] October surprise!


should have killed "Bin Laden" that would be a real surprise.

I got about twenty comments in and had this thought:

I am glad no one in NY (that I know of) died of a terrorist attack today (yesterday now, I suppose).

It was a good day, despite all the random idiots who tried my patience repeatedly.

garron: Tor_Eckman: garron: MisterTweak:

Maybe. I do recall George W. Bush madly fellating Ken Lay while his advisers were trying to get him to read some alarmist nonsense to distract him. They mostly used small words, though: OSAMA BIN LADEN DETERMINED TO ATTACK INSIDE U.S. Maybe if only those elitist intelligence types had used something smaller than "determined". Maybe "Schiavo", or "stem cell", or "gay".

I'm sorry - I missed the part where George Bush is running for President again. I swore I thought it was Romney. Silly me.

Please explain the major differences between Bush and Romney. Or any differences, for that matter.

Ah - that's a fun game. You go first. Please explain the differences between Obama and Jimmy Carter.


In other words, you cannot even give me one difference between Bush and Romney.

I figured.

A bunch of cabinet members along with Obama spent days and weeks doing undercover work and extensive planning to stop this? Those FBI agents just sat around right?

"Oh no Mr. President you go on this stakeout, I'll stay here and hang out in the Oval Office"

bhcompy: I would say a free gun is an unusually attractive offer.


Only if volunteered. If the defendant asked an undercover officer "how can I get a free gun so I can shoot my wife" and the officer responded "I know a guy" that is not entrapment. From the facts we have seen so far, this man came to the US intent on carrying out a terror attack and was actively seeking confederates before the police agencies trolled him. There might be some grey areas that we haven't seen yet that could change my opinion, but right now this looks like a clean sting, and those are quite legal.

We will probably never know all of the details, however, since dumbass is being represented by a public defender and has the full weight and fury of the Justice Department being aimed at his pointy head. I would bet that in the end, he ends up pleading.

Just like with clinton, he lied about it. That is the issue.

President Obama, though, wasn't done with Kerry Ladka. "After the debate, the president came over to me and spent about two minutes with me privately," says the 61-year-old Ladka, who works at Global Telecom Supply in Mineola, N.Y. According to Ladka, Obama gave him "more information about why he delayed calling the attack a terorist attack."

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


The hard part isn't the knowledge, I could probably figure out *how*, but I wouldn't know the first thing about getting enough materials together. Where would I test it, where would I assemble it?

122.1 Trillion Dollars

$122,100,000,000,000. - US unfunded liabilities by Dec 31, 2012.
Abovet you can see the pillar of cold hard $100 bills that dwarfs the
WTC & Empire State Building - both at one point world's tallest buildings.
If you look carefully you can see the Statue of Liberty.

The 122.1 Trillion dollar super-skyscraper wall is the amount of money the U.S. Government
knows it does not have to fully fund the Medicare, Medicare Prescription Drug Program,
Social Security, Military and civil servant pensions. It is the money USA knows it will not
have to pay all its bills.
If you live in USA this is also your personal credit card bill; you are responsible along with
everyone else to pay this back. The citizens of USA created the U.S. Government to serve
them, this is what the U.S. Government has done while serving The People.

The unfunded liability is calculated on current tax and funding inputs, and future demographic
shifts in US Population.

Note: On the above 122.1T image the size of the bases of the money stacks are $10 billion, and 400 stories @ $4 trillion

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world." - Thomas Jefferson

Everyone needs to see this.

Wait, you're telling me that the government doesn't get enough in taxes in one year to pay for social security and medicare for 100 years? I'm voting for Romney now.

Try that is only the next 30 years. Not the next 100.


Great, thanks for showing me I can compare apples to oranges. I'm getting all "emotional" now, better vote for more tax cuts... wait, what?

Which, of course, is the other part of the problem. They tried to play it fast and loose with the mob/gangsters during Prohibition and those guys actually had money and lawyers, so the government frequently hit a brick wall and had to go after them in ways that could actually stand up to scrutiny(like tax evasion). This guy doesn't stand a chance of representation equal to what the prosecution is going to bring, regardless of guilt.

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 am a Romney supporter and i dont blame Pres Obama for the Libya "scandal". Just like I don't give him credit for "stopping" this plot.

I do give him credit for giving the go ahead to kill Bin Laden - but he did not "get" Bin Laden - the intelligence folks, the SEALS, etc "got" Bin Laden.

The only area re Libya where Pres Obama could have done better was to try and get the messsage to his people to say "we dont have all the facts yet".

Somacandra: 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.


Exposing yourself to a blind person?
 
2012-10-18 12:24:57 PM

astouffer: Oh great another one of these busts where the FBI plant starts asking who wants to blow stuff up. 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. Chances are on his own this would NOT have happened. If you need help being a terrorist then maybe terror is not for you.


He didn't build that?

I heard 0bama himself personally disarmed all the security in Libya. Rush Limbaugh told me so.

Tor_Eckman: bhcompy: legalese

Ok then, how about this: You tell an undercover cop that you would shoot your wife, but you don't have enough money to buy a gun. He fronts you a gun, but it it has no firing pin. You go point it at your wife and pull the trigger. She calls the cops and they arrest you.

How about that? Because that is closer to what this guy actually did.


I was wondering. Did the gov. broach the subject first, or the suspect?
