According to OregonLive.com, the FBI “thwarted” a terrorist attack on Friday when it arrested Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a 19-year-old Somali-born US citizen who hoped to murder a large number of people by detonating a bomb in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square moments before the city’s annual tree-lighting ceremony. Sounds good, right?
Well, there’s a bit of a problem. You see, the FBI helped Mohamud plan the bombing and even supplied him with a fake bomb. The attempted bombing never would have happened if the FBI hadn’t held Mohamud’s hand throughout the entire process because he didn’t have the know-how to pull it off without outside help.
Do you feel safer?
