CNN Breaking News:
U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on Friday arrested a Moroccan man who was planning a suicide attack on the Capitol, police and a federal law-enforcement official said.

The man had what he thought was a vest with explosives, but the materials in the vest had been rendered inoperable by law enforcement, Justice Department spokesman Dean Boyd said.

The man had been closely monitored as part of a lengthy and extensive undercover operation, police said, adding U.S. Capitol Police had been "intimately" involved in the investigation.

The public was never in danger, police said.

The official said the person is not connected to a terrorist organization and was acting alone.

And of course we haven't the foggiest idea who all those are, except that they are certainly not only Mexicans. (as if the flow of illegal Mexicans is harmless).

Looks like the FBI has been playing the "al-Qaeda regime" for quite some time now...

There's some question about the propriety of what the authorities did in this case, and others like it, in conducting a "sting" and providing materials to theoretically carry it out, albeit benign materials. But they did ferret out his intentions that way, and likely saved a number of lives in the process.

Had they not done that, the suspect would have probably eventually made actual enemy contact, and the real plan might well have been carried out. So entrapment or not, its probably still a viable practice in certain cases like this one.

I realize that the date is old. On the other hand, did we know about this? I didn't. No news any where at that time. Kinda sad.

Ok, look what I just found. Yes, on Fox.

Going to look around other news sources to see what is up.

Oh not to worry about that Katts. None of them are perfect, but the Fox stigma among the lefties is undeserved. If they had their way, every outlet would be only from the left perspective, as the vast majority still are.

Fox is the one which goes way out of their way to employ numerous liberals on-staff, for the sole sake of presenting a relatively balanced point of view. They still lean slightly conservative overall, but not nearly to the extent that the other side's media outlets lean left.

Sadly, there is no longer a balanced media to be had, but Fox comes a lot closer to it than most of them. And they deserve credit for going that extra mile.

Yes, it is true; Leftists are very angry that their lies are being exposed and mostly that the effect of their radical socialist propaganda is being diminished by the power of Fox News, the most watched news channel in America.

Spoken from the ranks of the deeply indoctrinated, the leftist-lemming mentality, who have forgotten how to keep their eyes and ears open, and to decide things for themselves.

Sadly for them, they leave the thinking part to the left-driven media.

"Just tell us what to think, and that's what we'll do".
