How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Defense Attorney: Terrorism Suspect Was Coerced into Detonating Fake Bomb

Mohamed Mohamud was a naive teenager manipulated by the FBI to detonate what he thought was a real bomb at a Christmas tree-lighting event in Oregon, his defense attorney argued in the terrorism case Wednesday, the AP reported.

The FBI agent who posed as an al-Qaida terrorist admitted during cross-examination that Mohamud had trouble with the simplest of tasks – renting a storage shed and buying bomb-making ingredients, the AP wrote.

Mohamud, now 21, flipped the switch on what turned out to be a phony bomb during the tree-lighting ceremony in 2000.

Mohamud “didn’t have much money until you came into his life,” the defense attorney, Lisa Hay, told the agent, the AP reported.

Hay said Mohamud received financial assistance from the FBI.
