Holder Defends Entrapment - by Stephen Lendman

A legal definition. Entrapment occurs when law enforcement officials or agents induce, influence, or provoke crimes that otherwise wouldn't be committed. However, it doesn't apply in cases of willingness to act lawlessly, government merely aiding, abetting, or facilitating a good chance to do so.

Entrapment involves the following:

-- government officials or agents initiated the idea;

-- individuals were persuaded to act; and

-- they had no previous intent or willingness to do so.

Key is that prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that subjects weren't entrapped. Otherwise, due process convictions are prohibited, though judicial fairness seldom occurs in cases involving anyone for political reasons, especially Muslims. An earlier article explained.

Post-9/11, they've been victimized, vilified, and persecuted for their faith, ethnicity, prominence, activism, and charity. They've been targeted, hunted down, rounded up, held in detention, kept in isolation, denied bail, restricted in their right to counsel, tried on secret evidence, convicted on bogus charges, given long sentences, then incarcerated as political prisoners. Hundreds languish in America's gulag, the shame of the nation.

Many there were lawlessly entrapped, a common FBI tactic, one of several earlier articles explained, accessed through the following link:

The above case involved bogusly convicting five Muslim men for allegedly conspiring to attack American soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey despite no plot, no crime or intent to commit one. Numerous other cases were similar, including alleged plans to attack US marines at Quantico, VA, down National Guard jets with stinger missiles, attempt to buy and use a surface-to-air missile against Pakistan's ambassador, and others just as preposterous.

They include a fake shoe bomber, fake underwear bomber, fake Times Square bomber, an earlier fake one there, fake shampoo bombers, fake Al Qaeda woman planning fake attacks on New York landmarks, fake Oregon bomber, fake armed forces recruiting station bomber, fake 9/11 bombers, and others to enlist public support for the fake war on terror.

All cases involved entrapped Muslims. Accusations against them were bogus, yet they were arrested, charged, convicted and sentenced to long imprisonments - for being Muslims in America at the wrong time, not conspiracy to commit crimes.

Attorney General Eric Holder Defends Lawless Entrapment

Stings are a common FBI tactic, Wikipedia calling them:

"deceptive operation(s) to catch a person (allegedly) committing (or intending to commit) a crime. A typical sting (involves) law-enforcement officer(s) or cooperative member(s) of the public (a complicit well-paid plant) play(ing) a role as criminal partner or potential victim (by) go(ing) along with a suspect's (alleged) actions to gather evidence of....wrongdoing."
