Terrorist Or Not To Terrorist?

Boing Boing: Terrorists are stupid

The JFK Airport plotters seem to have been egged on by an informant, a twice-convicted drug dealer. An FBI informant almost certainly pushed the Fort Dix plotters to do things they wouldn't have ordinarily done. The Miami gang's Sears Tower plot was suggested by an FBI undercover agent who infiltrated the group. And in 2003, it took an elaborate sting operation involving three countries to arrest an arms dealer for selling a surface-to-air missile to an ostensible Muslim extremist. Entrapment is a very real possibility in all of these cases.
OH! An FBI agent suggested they blow up the Sears Tower, and then arrested them for it? Now that sounds almost like entrapment to me aswell...
