Oregon FBI Guilty of Un-PC Language and Entrapment (UPDATED)

David Paulin at The American Thinker asks a good question:

Has the FBI jumped off the Obama administration’s political correctness bandwagon? Well, the FBI’s Portland office apparently has.

Under the Obama administration, certain words that help us describe our enemies are verboten. For instance, the State Department and Department of Homeland Security are banned from using “jihad” and “mujahideen” with reference to Islamic terrorism. It’s all part of an effort to avoid offending the Muslim world.

Yet in a press release about the aborted Portland terror attack, the FBI repeatedly uses the “J” word (jihad) to describe what inspired Somali-born Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a naturalized U.S. Citizen who was arrested in the plot. Mohamud, 19, allegedly wanted to blow up an explosives-packed van near a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square. Mohamud was on the receiving end of a sting operation, so nobody was ever in any danger.

What is obvious to the FBI, and everyone else outside of Obama’s Dept. of Homeland security, is the fact that young Mohamud is a practitioner of Islamic Jihad —the bad kind. He was in contact with Jihadis overseas, which is what spurred the FBI to act:

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, in August 2009, Mohamud was in e-mail contact with an unindicted associate (UA1) overseas who is believed to be involved in terrorist activities. In December 2009, while UA1 was located in the northwest frontier province of Pakistan, Mohamud and UA1 discussed the possibility of Mohamud traveling to Pakistan to engage in violent jihad. UAI allegedly referred Mohamud to a second unindicted associate (UA2) overseas and provided Mohamud with a name and email address to facilitate the process.

In the months that followed, Mohamud allegedly made several unsuccessful attempts to contact UA2. Ultimately, an FBI undercover operative contacted Mohamud via e-mail in June 2010 under the guise of being an associate of UA1. Mohamud and the FBI undercover operative then agreed to meet in Portland in July 2010. At this meeting, Mohamud allegedly told the FBI undercover operative that he had written articles that were published in Jihad Recollections, an online magazine that advocated violent jihad. Mohamud also indicated that he wanted to become “operational.” Asked what he meant by “operational,” Mohamud stated that he wanted to put an “explosion” together, but needed help.

At a second meeting in August 2010, Mohamud allegedly told undercover FBI operatives he had been thinking of committing violent jihad since the age of 15. According to the affidavit, Mohamud then told the undercover FBI operatives that he had identified a potential target for a bomb: the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square on Nov. 26, 2010.

So bombing the Christmas tree lighting, where women and lots of children would be present, was Mohamud’s own special idea.

The FBI operatives cautioned Mohamud several times about the seriousness of his plan, noting that there would be many people, including children, at the event, and that Mohamud could abandon his plans at any time with no shame.

“You know there’s going to be a lot of children there?” an FBI operative asked Mohamud. “You know there are gonna be a lot of children there?”

Mohamud allegedly responded he was looking for a “huge mass that will … be attacked in their own element with their families celebrating the holidays.”

Basically, what we have here is a coldblooded  Jihadi – as hateful and cruel as they come – someone only his mother could love.

Right?

Wrong. Check out this idiocy at Firedoglake, via Patterico:

Tonight in Portland, we had a small dose of the FBI’s almost-operational terror sprees, as agents spent more than a year goading a young jihadi wannabe into almost killing thousands of Portlandians in our city’s living room as we gathered for the lighting of the holiday tree.

How long are we going to let the cowboys shoot up our country with their false terror plots and operations that would go nowhere without their instigation, planning, and coercion? How long will we allow our own federal constabulary to justify its own recklessly inflated budget by permitting actions like this to develop, fester, and grow operational in our midst?

This is terror, pure and simple. State-sponsored terror. Big-splash terror designed to make people compliant and fearful, and grateful to their federal government — in a city which has not yet installed the Rapiscan porno-scanners at our airport.

If that gave you a migraine, check out the comments at FireDogLake. Ay-yi-yi. I was expecting at least some to say, “WTF, dude! This guy was no victim!” But no…. they all agree. It doesn’t occur to any of  these commenters that capturing someone with the hateful and murderous worldview of Islamofascism before he kills, is a good thing. Why?

How can these people defend someone who has dedicated his life to killing as many innocent Americans as possible?

Chairman Ann explains how the left can have such callous disregard for their fellow countrymen, this way:

… the left’s anti-Americanism is intrinsic to their entire worldview. Liberals promote the right of Islamic fanatics for the same reason they promote the rights of adulterers, pornographers, abortionists, criminals, and Communists. They instinctively root for anarchy against civilization.

Another way of doing this is by not allowing us to define who our enemies are.

UPDATE:

Good Grief…the moonbattery gets even worse.

Reading the FBI affidavit describing Islamist terror suspect Mohamed Osman Mohamud’s plan to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square is a chilling experience.  Mohamud, a Somali-born naturalized U.S. citizen who attended Oregon State University, told undercover FBI agents he dreamed of performing acts of jihad in which hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Americans would die.  “Do you remember when 9/11 happened when those people were jumping from skyscrapers?” Mohamud asked the agents, according to the affidavit.  “I thought that was awesome.” 

Nice.

Van Helsing has some “spittle-spewing moonbattery among commenters at the largest liberal blog” at RWN: HuffPo Commenters on the Oregon Bomber:

MNmommy: Look at this young man’s beautiful face. He could have been redirected to modeling instead of encouraged in terrorism by the FBI. What does that say about us?

euell: I just feel terrible for his parents and family; our hearts and prayers go out to them.

photog606: ANOTHER “terrorist” manufactured out of whole cloth… the FBI only had to supply the time, the location and the phony bomb… then swoop in to save the gullible US citizenry from a scenerio THEY set-up and created.


SPEECHLESS.

    I read through a number of comments at one of Portland’s local papers, The Oregonian, where the view that the FBI had entrapped a dumb kid lacking actual terrorism skills also was endemic. It seems not to have occurred to these people that this “dumb kid,” given a little more time, might have found the more experienced terrorists he was looking for instead of the FBI operatives who cut him off at the pass. Or that 19-year-old college kids don’t stay 19 forever. With an engineering degree and a couple of years of professional employment under his belt, he would become much more dangerous.

    I also note the tears and hand-wringing for his “wonderful” family, who, while they didn’t actually prevent their son from committing violent jihad, supposedly did not approve of his jihadism. In the twisted logic of the progressive media, that makes his family members heroic figures. On the other hand, I have not encountered one tear or wrung hand in the media for the families who were the targets of this monster.

    Yet, if the FBI had not nabbed him before the fact and he pulled this off successfully, they would condemn them for that, as well.

    Win-win for the left, while the rest of us lose and the left can laugh themselves to deeper and more depraved levels of stupidity.

    Your quoted text does not support or even relate to this assertion. It’s quite a crucial detail for which you can find nothing to cite which supports it.
    This is telling.

    From the FBI press release:

    Pretty obvious that it was his idea, unless you can find a cite otherwise. Pretty telling.

    It was the FBI’s bomb.

    Struggle against your knee-jerk terrorist sympathies and try to read more objectively. What the author of the comment meant was that if Mohamud had made contact with people who could supply him with an actual bomb, he could easily have succeeded. And then you’d be blaming them for letting it happen.
