Feds: Somali-born teen plotted car-bombing in Ore. 
PORTLAND, Ore. Federal agents in a sting operation arrested a Somali-born teenager just as he tried blowing up a van he believed was loaded with explosives at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, authorities said.

The bomb was an elaborate fake supplied by the agents and the public was never in danger, authorities said.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested at 5:40 p.m. Friday just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would set off the blast but instead brought federal agents and police swooping down on him...

not to be a contrarian a***ole but I'm always suspicious about these things where it seems all too possible that that they conned some stupid impressionable kid into doing this in a way that would probably be illegal for police. I don't know. glad everyone is safe.

You may very well be right.  The story is interesting nonetheless if you read all of it.

Same here, glad that all are safe and sound. And you do bring up a goodpoint about the legitimacy of the "attack." Seems since Obama got in office, there have been more thwarted attacks and captured suspects.

Again, not to be contrary, but there seems to be something wrong in this one.
