Default Re: Enlisting the Muslims

Simon Willard,

Perhaps you haven't read the accounts of these cases that we already know from the media. None of these cases have anything to do with threats that are already "tangible." These are cases where someone may be spouting their mouth off and the govt is then spending months and in some cases tens of thousands of dollars to create what appears to be a tangible threat. Their main purpose is advancing their own careers and creating the impression they are "doing something."

What they are doing is entrapment as far as most people understand the word. No these defendants will not prevail in the current atmosphere because a)it is very difficult to win an entrapment defense in federal court under the so called "subjective" test and b) do you think any judge or jury is really going to acquit someone based on entrapment in the current atmosphere in the country??? Holder had to promise that terror suspects brought to trial in the US would be convicted and would not be freed even if acquitted and Congress still will not let him even do that!!!
