But by the time the FBI’s fake car bomb was parked outside the Cactus Bar & Grill in Chicago on Friday night, only Adel Daoud, 18, was there to push the button on what he thought was a detonator. Only Daoud was under arrest.
So what happened to the second person, an unidentified male who Dauod referred to as his “sahaba,” an Arabic term meaning companion?
Federal court records reveal a leader at a local mosque played a vital role in convincing the second man to abandon his plans for jihad just weeks before the would-be attack.
Undercover FBI agents, meanwhile, continued to lean heavily on Daoud. The agents supplied him with almost everything he needed to plan the attack and told him they were relaying messages from a foreign sheik who wanted to know if he was truly prepared to carry it out.
Now, I'm all for the FBI and law enforcement doing what they can to keep Americans safe without trampling all over our rights (we've given up enough of them over the last decade as it is), but when does this bullshit become entrapment? Seriously, these guys they bust are too dumb to find their ass with both hands tied behind their back and, but for the help of the FBI, would probably, at best, would have blown their fingers off tying a thousand M-80s together with a long fuse. The Imam did more to "foil a terrorist plot" than the FBI did and it cost nothing. I wonder how many millions went into the feebs' op?
