FBI says it supplied fake bomb in Chicago plot

A man arrested for allegedly placing a backpack he thought contained a bomb near Chicago's Wrigley Field got the fake explosive from an FBI undercover agent, authorities say , a tactic that has been used in other U.S. terrorism cases in recent years.

It wouldn't be the first time FBI agents have posed as terror operatives and supplied suspects with bogus explosives. Last year, authorities arrested a Jordanian national after he allegedly attempted to detonate what he thought was a bomb outside a Dallas skyscraper. In an unrelated case, authorities in Springfield, Ill., arrested another man after he allegedly tried to set off what he thought was explosives in a van outside a federal courthouse.

In the Chicago case, the FBI said an informant tipped investigators about Hassoun nearly a year ago. Grant said Hassoun acted alone and that the undercover agents told him they were from California and unaffiliated with any group. He declined to offer specific details about Hassoun's motivations, but said he believed the agents were ready to give him money if he carried out the attack.

TVNL Comment: The F.B.I. comes up with the terror plot. They recruit vulnerable Arabs. They instigate their anger. They supply the weapons. Then they make the arrest. This is what happened during the first World Trade Center bombing. The F.B.I even supplied the REAL EXPLOSIVES used in the bombing. Interestingly enough the victims of the stings are almost always Islamic. It does not say anything good about Islam, but it sure shows that there is a concerted effort to make the world hate and fear Islamic people. Gee, who could this benefit?
