Aug. 13 Administration officials are leaving out key facts and exaggerating the significance of the alleged plot to smuggle a shoulder-launched missile into the United States, law enforcement officials told ABCNEWS. They say there’s a lot less than meets the eye…
The missile shipped into the New York area last month was not a real missile just a mockup also arranged entirely by the government. The government also arranged the meetings at a New Jersey hotel and elsewhere, where Lakhani allegedly told undercover agents posing as al Qaeda terrorists about his support of bin Laden.
“One would have to ask yourself, would this have occurred at all without the government?” said Gerald Lefcourt, a criminal defense attorney.
