and then arrests the people they supported. This piece in the WaPo offers some insight as to what happened with case of the Miami Moors (also the Seas of David). I know this hasn’t gone to trial, so I can’t say whether it was entrapment or not. These guys were apparently up to no good, but a bunch of hoodlums don’t make a terrorist cell.
It’s just following a pattern of behavior from this administration that seems to take the threat of terrorism as a tool to increase control over the population. It makes us less as people (like our willingness to scream “terror” when faced with difference). It saddens me because it demeans us (not just Muslims, but all people), and it ends up making us less secure, because we don’t know how to approach the issue as regular citizens, or in the upper echelons of our government.
