  •  Another fake"plot"? (8+ / 0-)

    It seems that just by taking the word of the informer and then acting precipitously, the FBI have managed to undermine any chance of a successful prosecution even if these alleged "plotters" had any real intention of carrying out an attack.

    You might like to contrast this with the British police in the "fertilizer bomb case" where a harmless substitute was made for the main ingredient in the bomb and the plot allowed to progress. That way, more intelligence about the network (and links to the 7/7 bombing in London) were uncovered.
