In hunt for US terror recruits, FBI agents set traps

Members of a Federal Bureau of Investigation SWAT team take part in a field training exercise in Alexandria, VirginiaIn April, John Booker was arrested for allegedly planning to carry out a suicide bombing at a military base in Kansas on behalf of the Islamic State group. It turns out that undercover FBI operatives had been manipulating the 20-year-old for six months — helping him make a “martyrdom” video, providing him with a list of bomb-making materials and even building an explosive device for him, albeit an inert one. Critics say the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s growing army of undercover agents tasked with hunting down terror recruits on US soil sometimes unduly pressures young, impressionable people to plan and move forward with acts they may otherwise not have conceived on their own.
