Mohamed Osman Mohamud Found Guilty

Apparently, the FBI can still take a troubled young man, track him for up to two years, seduce him into terrorism, and win a terrorism conviction.

The jury handed up its verdict after less than seven hours of deliberations in a trial that began Jan. 10 in a downtown courtroom just a few blocks from the scene of the crime.

Mohamud, a 21-year-old Somali American, was convicted of the only charge confronting him: trying to use a weapon of mass destruction. He faces a potential sentence of life in prison. The sentencing hearing was set for May 14.

Chief defense attorney Stephen R. Sady said he will appeal and will seek a “substantially reduced sentence” for Mohamud.

“We’re disappointed with the verdict … we obviously thought he was entrapped,” Sady said. “We will pursue what remedies are available for him.’’

And so the United States continues to pursue the course of training and paying their manufactured terrorists, rather than intervening to save a kid’s future.
