To all you people who think that our law enforcement officers and FBI agents spend their days trying to cook up some fake plot that essentially makes light of all the people dying all over the world from terrorist attacks: I have to wonder what is wrong with you. I do not deny that governments cover things up. I do not deny that there are people who do underhanded things for their own gain. But there ARE people who take on the responsibility to PROTECT us because they know that there are evil, crazy people out there who do not value human life. I fully support those who put their lives on the line to protect the lifestyle that you and I have, and I deplore those in law enforcement who abuse their office and thus create people who believe that the state and federal law enforcement agents and detectives are all corrupt. I rest easy at night knowing that there are still many honorable men and women who are protecting the men,women, and children who go to Christmas tree lightings. What you need to understand is that these people who believe in Jihad are not normal people like you and me ... this kid would have figured out a way to get his hands on a bomb one way or another. The fact that our agents strung him along so skillfully and made absolutely sure that this did NOT happen, saved many lives. I think you would have a different perspective if your mother or wife or child HAD been killed because he HAD succeeded in bombing Pioneer Courthouse Square. You would wonder why the agencies hadn't been on him like white on rice. If there is no pleasing you, then you should have no voice.
