FBI apparently set up US teen blamed for fake car bomb
  Text size
Attentato islamico, made in FBI

L’ultimo caso di sventato “attentato islamico” in Usa. Il terrorista è un americano di origine somala, di 19 anni. Avvicinato in luglio da agenti dell’FBI, che fingendosi terroristi lo hanno esaltato e persino fornito esplosivi per un “attentato di prova” in una località appartata, dove hanno fatto veramente esplodere uno zaino. Il diciannovenne è stato arrestato a Portland mentre tentava di far esplodere con un telecomando un furgone che credeva pieno di esplosivo: invece l’esplosivo era inerte, anche quello fornito dall’FBI.

Boy told undercover agents he could get a gun because he's a "rapper"; authored article containing "jihad" workout tips

mohamedosmanmohamud FBI apparently set up US teen blamed for fake car bombAn Somali-born, American teenager was apparently set up by federal law enforcement officials who posed as radical Islamic fighters and lured the young man into a plot he believed would lead him to detonate a car bomb at an Oregon Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

The bomb, provided by FBI agents, was "inert" and did not pose a threat to public safety, according to the US Attorney's Office in Oregon.

Oddly enough, Arthur Balizan, an FBI agent in Oregon, contradicted the US Attorney's Office, suggesting that the threat posed by 19-year-old Mohamed Osman Mohamud "was very real."

Except: "[At] every turn," he explained, "we denied him the ability to actually carry out the attack."

The story rings devastatingly familiar when stacked next to the tale of Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, a Jordanian man arrested in 2009, at age 19, for allegedly planning to detonate a car bomb in a Dallas skyscraper.

Each boy was led down the path to imagined violence by federal agents, with authorities ultimately providing fake bombs in both cases. Smadi and Mohamud, officials claim, expressed a desire to engage in terrorist attacks before agents began luring them in.

Federal agents noticed Mohamud in December 2009, after he allegedly communicated with a suspected terrorist in Pakistan. Months later, an undercover agent contacted Mohamud claiming to be the individual's associate, and Mohamud agreed to meet in Portland.

Agents claimed that Mohamud revealed himself to be the author of a bizarre 2009 article for the English-language "Jihad Recollections" magazine. The story made headlines for it's comical images of masked fighters helping each other exercise.

Other articles in the 70+ page magazine published in North Carolina included a preview of "emp technology," poetry, speeches from Osama bin Laden and a how-to guide to global jihad.

One key thing, however, was oddly lacking from the magazine's first edition: as even Fox News noted, it did not explicitly call for violence against anyone.

The magazine also featured quotes from Tennessee Republican Congressman Zach Wamp, who made headlines again last July for suggesting that his state secede from the US.

Agents also reveal in court documents that Mohamud had told them he might be able to get a gun, because he was a "rapper."

"We were unable to determine Mohamud's Jihadi emcee name, or the potency of his flow," Gawker quipped.

Court documents claim the first meeting between Mohamud and the FBI took place in July, 2010. In the months following, agents ostensibly worked him up to the point where he was willing to flip the switch on a car bomb. Agents even took Mohamud to a secluded location to blow up a bomb they placed in a backpack, allegedly as a test run.

Mohamud was arrested by FBI agents and Portland police around 5:40 pm Friday, after he attempted to remotely detonate what he believed to be an explosives-laden van. Officials claimed that early on Friday, Mohamud had recorded a video explaining why he wanted to carry out the attack.

"I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave either dead or injured," he said, according to law enforcement.

Mohamud is scheduled to appear in federal court on Monday.
