    Another day, another faux-terrorism arrest by the FBI. Who do we really need to be protected from anyway?



    Now watch the italics:

    The Justice Department charged two Virginia men with terrorism-related offenses, a day after FBI agents arrested one of them at an airport where officials believe he was planning to begin a journey to Syria to fight with the Islamic State.

    Both men, Joseph Hassan Farrokh and Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan, are in FBI custody and face up to 20 years in prison if they are convicted.

    The department did not cite any evidence that the two men had direct contact with operatives for Islamic State, and based the terrorism charges on conversations they had with three informants.

    Farrokh, a 28-year-old native of Pennsylvania, was arrested at the airport in Richmond, Virginia, where he was planning to fly to Chicago and on to Amman, Jordan, according to a criminal complaint released on Saturday. During wiretapped conversations with an FBI informant, Farrokh discussed beginning his journey from a smaller airport to evade scrutiny.

    The complaint said that Elhassan, a 25-year-old permanent resident of the United States originally from Sudan, drove Farrokh to within a mile of the airport, and that Farrokh took a taxi the rest of the way. Elhassan is being charged with aiding and abetting Farrokh’s attempts to provide material support to a terrorist organization.

    The complaint said that Farrokh did not appear to want to return to the United States.


    Quick summation:

    — No terrorism committed, or even planned, inside America.

    — One guy arrested for trying to fly to Chicago.

    — Other guy arrested for driving Guy I to the airport.

    — 100% of “evidence” are conversations with informants.

    — No information on how the two arrested men came together with informants, or what the informants said that might have spurred the conversations.
