“Four Inland Empire men charged with plotting to join Al Qaeda and the Taliban and threatening to commit ‘violent jihad’ against Americans trained at Southern California paintball courses and shooting ranges,” latimes.com reports semi-incredulously. I smell a rat. A very expensive rat. “A portion of the case rests on a confidential source who befriended Santana and Deleon and wore a recording device, according to the complaint. The source was paid more than $250,000 by the federal government in October and received unspecified ‘immigration benefits,’ according to a footnote in the complaint. The source was previously convicted of trafficking in pseudoephedrine.” Can you say “entrapment”? Anyway, again, “To prepare, the men allegedly practiced firing semiautomatic weapons at area shooting ranges.” And to prepare against terrorists every adult American should practice firing semi-automatic weapons at their local shooting range. Meanwhile, I wonder if these guys played COD and stabbed any pork roasts.
