Oops, Sorry Guys...I Forgot The Explosives
Terrorism suspect arrested near U.S. Capitol in bomb plot sting
Los Angeles Times | Feb. 17, 2012
An man wearing what he thought was a suicide vest packed with explosives was arrested near the U.S. Capitol in Washington by FBI agents who had been closely monitoring him in an undercover sting operation, officials announced today.
The officials got egg on their faces when the suspect turned out to be an accountant with a sunken chest, wearing a simple, padded vest to make him look more manly.
Paired with the I.C.E. shootout of themselves, it turned out to be an embarrassing week for law enforcement in the hunt for terrorism.
