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.

    What is really sad is that a lot of people, who were at the tree lighting ceremony for example, are totally supportive of the conviction. The DOJ and FBI got at least a twofer here, a 19 year old’s, ( now 21 year old’s) scalp and increased public support for entrapment.
    On the other hand, Islamic proselytizers here have told me America will be converted.

    None of us is safe. Not one of us.

    Would you go to the FBI about your kid’s possible radicalization, knowing what the Feds did to this kid after his parents alerted them to him?

    Very profound point. That we need terrorists so badly, that our FBI finds and creates them, rather trying to prevent them.
