They Were Nice Boys Alert from Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Seven men charged with conspiring to bomb the Sears Tower in Chicago and the FBI building in Miami were entrapped by a federal informant, lawyers for two of the suspects said on Monday.
An indictment issued last week accused the men of pledging loyalty to Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda and seeking the group’s support to “wage war” against the U.S. government.
The person they thought was an al Qaeda representative was actually an FBI informant, U.S. Justice Department officials said.
Albert Levin, the court-appointed attorney for suspect Patrick Abraham, said he believes his client was ensnared by the informant.
There was “a lot of talking going on by the informant and more listening by the defendant and or the defendants,” Levin told Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly.
