FBI Hatched DC Metro Bomb Plot?

Ahmed101029
Farooque Ahmed, seen here at a detention hearing this afternoon in U.S.District Court, Alexandria, is charged in a plot to blow up DC Metro stations, but it seems that it was the FBI posing as al-Qaeda that first assigned him to case out Northern Virginia Metro stations, and later told him it was part of a planned terrorist attack.  Clearly Ahmed had the desire to wage jihad, but appears to have been generally clueless until the FBI stepped in.  Ahmed’s wife, Sahar is reported to belong to a group called “Hip Muslim Moms”.
