A teenager has been arrested in the US state of Oregon after allegedly plotting to carry out a car bomb attack at a Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

Somali-born Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested after reportedly making a telephone call he thought would set off the bomb in the centre of Portland.

However, the bomb was a fake supplied by agents in a sting operation. Mr Mohamud is a naturalised US citizen who had allegedly been in contact with an associate in north-west Pakistan. He has been charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Somali-Born Teen Plots Car Bombing in US Northwest


U.S. prosecutors say an Oregon teenager of Somali descent has been arrested in an alleged terrorist plot to car-bomb a Christmas tree lighting event in the northwestern city of Portland, Oregon Friday night.

Authorities say 19-year-old Mohamed Osman Mohamud was taken into custody by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation after he dialed a cell phone intending to detonate a bomb, but instead rang for the FBI in a sting operation.

Mohamud had earlier been given phony explosives by undercover officers, who first learned of his alleged plot last year.


Is this guy another manufactured terrorist patsy designed to be caught in order to further reinforce the phony War on Terror?

Your opinions are appreciated...

Note:"fake supplied by agents".

You have a smoking gun there. Would this have ever gotten this far if agents were not assisting him? I don't think so.
Doesn't this make all those agents conspirators? Why are they not facing charges too?

This is the same old BS. They find some kid that's disillusioned, easy to convince and perhaps a little "simple" and groom him into becoming someone they can later arrest and use as an example.

Your own government agencies are creating terrorists to keep themselves in business and to further their assault on your freedom.

Amazing how americans always find these people who are planning this and that. How would they know in 300 million people cough cough who is planning?

The only time they let it work is when they want something done, in reagrds to laws it seems.

But it is amazing how americans agencies some how always find people ready to do something. America has 300 million people, how do they find someone determined to do something?

Could this be used as a tipping point to erode the First Amendment? Freedom of Assembly could be undermined by the Government claiming it is too dangerous. This incident as proof that we need even more "protection" from the Government.

The protection offered by the government is jackboot tyranny in gift wrapping paper.

Even worse. Think of candy or chocolate spiked with rat poison or toilet cleaner.

i heard that he was trying to contact people in pakistan and the fbi intercepted the emails or whatever.

so they pretended they were terrorists.

i guess it wasn't hard to do that.

so they played along.
