Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the FBI by clayrodery Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the FBI by clayrodery
This is my very first illustration for the New York Times, appearing today (4/29/12) on page 4 of the Sunday Review section. The article it was for discusses how the FBI actively lure would-be domestic terrorist sympathizers into fake terror plots they supply and make opportunity for. When these amateur terrorists act on the FBI's push, the Feds bust in and "save the day", and then the media gets a nice successful FBI sting to report on. Apparently this is perfectly legal, but the article asks would these sympathizers have ever acted on their own without the FBI giving them materials and opportunity?

You can read the entire article here: [link]

Contentious issue, I remember reading an article on Ars Technica recently about the FBI using such tactics, at what point does it become entrapment? Even so, I guess that doesn't me a whole lot these days when the legal rights of such institutions are constantly being redefined and expanded and those of the individual suppressed.

That's so completely strange(the story) but also just what I would expect. Congrats on your illustration in the NYT! This really captures the whole idea.
