Collaring Yourself

The FBI has received substantial criticism over the past decade -- much of it valid -- but nobody can deny its record of excellence in thwarting its own Terrorist plots. Time and again, the FBI concocts a Terrorist attack, infiltrates Muslim communities in order to find recruits, persuades them to perpetrate the attack, supplies them with the money, weapons and know-how they need to carry it out -- only to heroically jump in at the last moment, arrest the would-be perpetrators whom the FBI converted, and save a grateful nation from the plot manufactured by the FBI.

The obvious questions these manufactured criminals/crimes lead to are: 1) If the FBI must spend all this time and money creating bogeymen for them to arrest, does that mean there really aren't people out there plotting to do in America? and 2) If real bona fide terrorists DO exist, is the FBI simply to inept to find them?

Just wondering.
