FBI Sting Entraps Another Victim - by Stephen Lendman

In December 2007, an article titled Police State America: A Look Back and Ahead discussed the growing threat, accessed through the following link:

It reviewed post-9/11 legislation and a blizzard of Bush Executive Orders, National and Homeland Security Presidential Directives, and other ways of enforcing police state harshness by eroding constitutional protections.

One way is by silencing truth, notably against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, jailed in London on a European arrest warrant for Sweden where he's wanted for unlawful coercion, sexual molestation and rape. In fact, it's for allegedly having sex without a condom, despite no evidence proving wrongdoing. He strongly denies it, calling the charges politically motivated. 

Moreover, since when is condomless or consensual sex illegal, whether or not he cohabited with two female accusers, snaring him in a honey trap. It likely was hatched in Washington or by complicit US allies to attack WikiLeaks by imprisoning or perhaps killing him, even though others are releasing cables daily in his absence.

On December 9, RAI Novosti headlined, "Kremlin suggests WikiLeaks founder for Nobel (Peace) Prize," according to an unnamed Kremlin source. He also tops an online Time Person of the Year poll, the selection to be announced in mid-December.

At issue is United States of America v. Antonio Martinez, aka Muhammad Hussain, arrested on terrorist related charges.

An earlier article quoted Law Professor Anthony Barkow saying:

"A person is entrapped when he has no previous intention to violate the law and is persuaded to commit the crime by government agents. But if he's already willing to commit the crime, it's not entrapment if government agents convince him to do it."

So far, only Justice Department allegations are known, accentuated by inflammatory media reports. Whether or not there was intent is based solely on their charges. As a result, it's far too early to make judgments, especially as so many previous cases showed innocent men and some women were bogusly charged, convicted and imprisoned, victims of American injustice.

Department of Justice Charges

On December 8, a Department of Justice press release headlined, "Maryland Man Charged in Plot to Attack Armed Forces Recruiting Center: Inert 'Bomb' Provided by Undercover FBI Agent Posed No Danger to Public," saying:

"Antonio Martinez, aka Muhammad Hussain, age 21, of Baltimore, a US citizen, was charged by criminal complaint today with attempting to murder federal officers and employees and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction against federal property in connection with a scheme to attack an Armed Forces recruiting station in Catonsville, Maryland. Martinez was arrested this morning after he attempted to remotely detonate what he believed to be explosives in a vehicle parked in the (station's) parking lot."

On December 8, he was arraigned in Baltimore US District Court before Magistrate Judge James K. Bredar.
