Column: FBI Stings Protect Against Terrorism

By Ronald Kessler

WASHINGTON — We are used to liberals trying to take away the tools FBI agents need to uncover terrorist plots. But when conservatives — who generally support strong national security — do the same thing, it is particularly dismaying.

Fox News commentator Andrew Napolitano and a few other conservatives have been hammering the FBI for conducting stings that roll up terrorist plots.

A former New Jersey Superior Court judge, Napolitano made the case on Bill O’Reilly’s Fox News show “The Factor” concerning the arrest last month of 19-year-old Mohamed Osman Mohamud in Oregon. According to the FBI, the native of Somalia plotted to blow up crowds gathered for a Christmas tree lighting in Portland.

“The FBI talked him into doing this,” Napolitano said, claiming such stings will lead to the U.S. becoming like East Germany when it was under Soviet domination. “And then [the FBI] got him to say well, I was thinking about doing it before I met you guys. And then the FBI charges him with attempting to explode a device — a weapon of mass destruction? It was a truck filled with sawdust. It couldn’t have exploded.”
