Terror plotting: bravado or sincerity?

(CNN) -- The man seized for allegedly trying to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York wanted to "destroy America" and said al Qaeda inspired him. When the FBI got wind of his plans, they brought him down in a sting.

Federal authorities nabbed 21-year-old Quazi Mohammad Rezwanual Ahsan Nafis on Wednesday and said he tried to detonate what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb.

Using his cell phone as a trigger, they say, Nafis sat in a hotel near the bank, where "the world's largest accumulation of gold" -- belonging to 36 foreign governments, central banks and international organizations -- is secured in a vault 80 feet beneath the ground floor.

But the device was actually inert and part of an elaborate undercover investigation by federal authorities and New York Police Department detectives.

It's unclear whether Nafis -- who came to the United States on a student visa from Bangladesh -- maintained al Qaeda ties, but authorities say he apparently claimed that the plot was his own and that it was his sole motivation for the U.S. trip.

It's the kind of case, like other terror plots, that gives police and attorneys headaches as they try to tell barroom bravado from a sincere resolve to attack.

Hummm, he states his sole purpose in coming to the US was to kill and he tried to detonate what he thought was a 1,000 bomb but CNN questions if this was a "sincere resolve to attack" or "barroom bravado".

:confused:

Why not call this an attempeted act of terror? What am I missing?

You are missing the fact that CNN are IDIOTS. Barroom bravado does not include buying and building what you believe is a 1000 bomb, planting it and then pushing the detonate button.

Strange, eh? If this had been a white man trying to blow up an abortion clinic, it would have been called domestic terrorism, but this man who tried to blow up and kill thousands is nothing but barroom bravado. I am so freaking lost. WTF is going on.

The problem is those nutters in Miami that got spoon fed some stupidness including terrorist uniforms, etc.

CNN isn't saying this wasn't terrorism, they are merely commenting on how difficult it is to avoid entrapment.

No one likes entrapment, correct?

Those Miami folks were not entrapped and neither was this guy. Or perhaps you can point us to the case being dismissed? You are aware one of the main tools of law enforcement is the sting?

I think the low IQs of the people in Miami point to entrapment. IIRC, only one of them was convicted of anything.

This guy does sound like a terrorist, but who knows, maybe he's as retarded as they were.

Yet, he flew here with the sole mission to kill because he was inspired by al-Qaeda, dug enough to find someone willing to supply him with a fake bomb. And CNN questions if this act was barroom bravado. In fact they say:

It's the kind of case, like other terror plots, that gives police and attorneys headaches as they try to tell barroom bravado from a sincere resolve to attack.
So what happens if he knew how to build a bomb or obtained something to kill from a non-imformant?

Then it would certainly be more clear that he was a terrorist.

Wait, you question if he was a terrorist? Why? So because he was 'ratted' out and he made a 'deal' with an informant instead of a 'real" terrorist, his intentions can be questioned? I don't understand. I am not trying to be obtuse. I am sincerely trying to understand. He said he came here with the sole purpose to commit an act of terror.

Because Ravi always supports terrorists and downplays terrorism.

It's all part of her anti-America, anti-Christians schtick.

Yes, he did. And that's why I believe he probably is a terrorist. At the same time, I am uncomfortable with entrapment. If he was really a threat, why not just keep an eye on him and sweep up whomever he plotted with?

And there's always the innocent until proven guilty rule, which often gets thrown out when someone is accused of terrorism.

You were uncomfortable with keeping terrorists at Abu Ghraib, too.

Thank goodness we released a bunch, so they were free to launch more attacks...you must feel good about that, at any rate.
