Mosque Gets Restraining Order To Prevent FBI From Inciting Terror

Yup, that's a true story. Oh, and where did it happen? In my family's home-town of Irvine, CA, whose crime rate is about 0.14 the national average.

If you've got some time, you might want to listen to this classic This American Life about similar entrapment, in the case that made Chris Christie's career.

At least this time the court system worked as a check on FBI misbehavior. Thank you, separation-of-powers.

The great irony is that the informant was reported to the FBI by American Muslims who were concerned that he might be planning a terrorist attack.
