6. No plot, entrapment...
It looks like these 'terrorists' had a lot of help:

"... Batiste met several times in December 2005 with a person purporting to be an Al Qaeda member and asked for boots, uniforms, machine guns, radios, vehicles and $50,000 in cash to help him build an Islamic Army to wage jihad, the indictment said. It said that Batiste said he would use his soldiers to destroy the Sears Tower.

Gonzales said the individual they thought was a member of Al Qaeda was present at their meetings and in actuality he was working with the South Florida Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The person they believed to be an Al Qaeda representative gave Batiste a digital video camera, which Batiste said he would use to record pictures of the North Miami Beach FBI building, the indictment said. At a March 26 meeting, it went on, Batiste and Burson Augustin provided the Al Qaeda representative with photographs of the FBI building, as well as video footage of other Miami government buildings, and discussed the plot to bomb the FBI building.

But on May 24, the indictment said, Batiste told the Al Qaeda representative that he was experiencing delays because of various problems within his organization. Batiste said he wanted to continue his mission and his relationship with Al Qaeda nonetheless, the document said. "

TorStar

Even the ringleader didn't have confidence in his 'terror crew' battle readiness, inspite of the informer dong everything he could to help it along...incredible.
