"Before Nafis was arrested on Wednesday, he and the agent brought a van loaded with inert explosive materials to the Fed, parked it, and went to a nearby hotel, where Nafis attempted to detonate the bomb using a cell phone, according to the complaint."

Wonder why wasn't that agent ARRESTED too ?

This to me seems like tricking someone who is failing in class and having miserable life to do FAKE terrorism. It's more important to see if this guy is capable of doing such things on his own and acquiring that much of explosive.

Why in the HELL would you arrest the agent? Damn that sounds stupid!

The agent was there to set him up to see if he would do it and if he did, then they arrest him.

The plan was carried out EXACTLY as it should have been, right to the point where that idiot went to call the cell phone in order to make the stuff explode. Now not only do you have intent, you have execution of terrorism.

I absolutely applaud the NYC police and FBI for nailing that P.O.S. and I hope they are successful every time!

In case of REAL terrorism, won't you arrest the person who was brain behind the terror like supplying bomb ?

It's obvious that the FBI agent gave the fake bomb, so he should be arrested and charge along with the guy for same crime. Are FBI agent have difficult time finding REAL terror cells that they need to go after college kids ?

This news seems more stupid if you think logically. How about giving same fake guns to angry teens and do the same thing like in Aurora shooting ? We could round of lot more MENTALLY imbalanced guys.

Law enforcement agency can lock-up many more young people on US street if they can arm them with FAKE guns and ask them to shoot in theater or mall.

This news is illogical and stupid. The guy was just carrying instruction of FBI operator.
