Please Tell Me No One Will Fall For ThisTopics: Terrorism
Defense attorneys for the "Fort Dix Six" alleged radical Islamist terrorists are contemplating an entrapment defense?
Will anyone actually believe that the government "pushed the six men down a path" they would not have otherwise followed?
He railed against the United States, helped scout out military installations for attack, offered to introduce his comrades to an arms dealer and gave them a list of weapons he could procure, including machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades."A path they would not have otherwise followed"? The poor peace-loving tolerant Muslim terrorists were entrapped into wanting to murder soldiers and civilians at Fort Dix "in the name of Allah," as they were recorded saying in numerous telephone conversations?
These were not the actions of a terrorist but of a paid FBI informant who helped bring down an alleged plot by six Muslim men to massacre U.S. soldiers at New Jersey's Fort Dix.
And those actions have raised questions of whether the government crossed the line and pushed the six men down a path they would not have otherwise followed.
From the same article:
Entrapment occurs when law enforcement officials entice others into committing a crime they otherwise would not have committed. Under the law, people cannot be convicted if they were entrapped. But there is no entrapment if a person is willing to break the law and law officers offer to help.Bingo!
