Re: “Get a grip on fear

For a more realistic assessment of what kind of "threat" Lutchman posed, it's important to call what happened to Lutchman entrapment and to see it not as an isolated incident but rather as a well-established pattern that has been repeating itself for 15 years.

Here is more cogent analysis (including the perusal of court documents) rather than the cut and paste we've seen by most mainstream media: http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/…

Here is Glenn Greenwald on a similar arrest of three Brooklyn men earlier in 2015: https://theintercept.com/2015/02/26/fbi-ma…

And finally, in order to have a more intelligent and realistic discussion about these so-called terror plots, here is a study by Project Salam (led by attorney Stephen Downs) and the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms: http://www.projectsalam.org/Inventing-Terr…

Unless we educate ourselves about how these cases work (they've been documented since 2001) and learn to parse government truthiness, media sensationalism and national hysteria will continue to be the only response.
