    That particular building is built like a fortress. Doubt it would have sustained much damage. Other buildings and people on the street on the other hand. Google some of the security features on the NY Fed.

    Do you really not understand that? Really?:rofl:

    So the FBI discovers a terrorist plot before it happens. Then they avert it by getting inside and providing fake explosive and, at the same time, they insure conviction and maximize the prison time for the terrorist by letting him make an attempt. At the same time, they get to play out the plan which provides an opportunity to identify the terrorist's network/associates/other targets, etc.

    But you seem to find something wrong in it.

    Nobody can be too dumb to get that - even with no knowledge orf law enforcement, it's just plain common sense. I can only assume you just want to say something bad about law enforcement.:upeyes:

    Well, tell us how YOU think they should have handled it.

    Yeah, I understand it. They find some dummy and give them explosives so they can try to blow something up which keeps people like you scared and on the edge of their seat so that you will willfully embrace more government and less freedom.

    Well we could always figure a way for the FBI to lock them up for a long time for just thinking about it. No violation of their rights there of course

    or

    We could lock them up for a couple of weeks and turn them loose with more experience to try again. No danger there.

    Those are your other choices....Pick One.

    Yeah, pretty standard routine by now. The FBI constructs and then foils their own terrorist plot, saving millions, and sending some retard they recruited to "flip the switch" to prison. Basically an ultra-expensive, purpose-built headline generator.

    sure, there is no danger from the "retards' it takes a genius like Timothy McVeigh to be dangerous. We have to be on the watch for those High IQ types.

    Once again, the FBI designs and sets into motion another one of their terrorist plots, and find a patsy to complete the puzzle. I feel safer already.

    I put corn in the traps. I don't feel guilty about it at all. I'll be doing it again this weekend.

    Gotta justify the war on terror somehow.

    Funny how the McViegh bomb blew a huge hole in the Murrah building, but did nothing to the pavement below it.

    On the other hand, destroying a bunch of printing presses would have been a HUGE set back to obama's plan to recover the economy.

    It's his ONLY plan and all he understands.

    Nor did it damage much else located in the blast zone. Funny too how the waffen BATFEces thugs just happened to be out of the building that morning.
