FBI Baits Bronx Man To Commit Terror With Liver Transplant For Dying Brother

This deserved its own headline. An article in the Daily News details the tricks played by an FBI informant to bait a Bronx man into committing terror acts such as bombing two Bronx synagogues. According to the mother of the Bronx man, the FBI informant even promised the suspect a liver transplant for his dying brother. The suspect, David Williams, told his mother "Mom, I met a good Muslim brother; he is going to help us.'"

Another article on NBC New York details a motion for dismissal of the terror indictment against Williams and three others by their lawyers. According to the article, the same FBI informant "suggested there could be as much as $250,000 available" but "he failed to motivate the defendants to any action on their own. Months went by between meetings, and the filings quote Cromitie as saying, "I'm not gonna hurt anybody" and "The plane thing ... is out of the question."
