    They probably learned of his "plans" because they typed them up and handed them to him. They probably paid for his training, purchased his firearms, ammo and explosives, and rented his vehicle too.

    At least that's the way they've been doing since the early 1990s...

    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    Oh, I very seriously doubt it. It's much more likely the man was asking around if anyone knew where he could obtain explosives, and someone called the authorities. You know, like a landlord...

    "A former landlord in Arlington said he believed El Khalifi was suspicious and called police 18 months ago."

    Oh, well then. There you have it.

    The FBI routinely uses Agents to recruit terrorists for fake ops in order to arrest them.

    Provided the terrorists initiate the moves towards the illegal action, it's not entrapment.

    Playing with fire is the sort of affair where one may be burned.
