I Wish They Would Stop This

A 21-year-old Bangladeshi man tried and failed to blow up the Federal Reserve Building in downtown Manhattan on Wednesday, largely thanks to the efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. That “thanks” ought to be attached both to the “tried” and the “failed” parts of that sentence, since it was the FBI that not only coaxed the suspect, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, into moving forward with the bombing but also supplied him with the means to do so. Don’t worry. The Feds know what they’re doing. They do this all the time.

The FBI has thwarted around 30 terrorist attacks since 2001; made much easier since they are also the ones behind the terrorist attacks. It would be really great if they would stop playing this game of chicken with themselves before they end up with a “Fast and Furious” style debacle on their hand and a building actually does get blown up and people actually do die. I’m hardly a conspiracy theorist, but every time they do this I wonder if 9/11 was just a setup that they lost hand of.
