ABC News: Man Convicted of Trying to Sell Missiles — I wonder how far the “entrapment” defense will go with this creep in this day and age. Hah. Good luck a-hole.

Prosecutors said Lakhani, a British citizen of Indian descent, was heard in one taped conversation saying Osama bin Laden “straightened these idiots he did a very good thing,” in reference to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and spoke about providing the missiles in time for the one-year anniversary of the attacks.

His attorney, Henry Klingeman, insisted Lakhani had no sympathies with terrorist groups, and argued that his client was a victim of entrapment.

Americans are “idiots” but he wants to indulge himself in mass murder. Hm.

  1. Ed Campell says:

    You shouldn’t do the crime if you can’t take the time. In the “bad old days” — before the average gangster learned to hire the same class of lawyers trained to thwart justice for corporate thugs — you expected to spend some time in the slammer. Among my compagni in the Mafia, it was expected that sooner or later you took a hit in the joint — if for no other reason than to keep someone higher up the food chain on the outside.

    That all seemed to change somewhere in the 60’s or 70’s. Unrelated to the uncommon quest for freedom and enlightenment, the new vice of “I ain’t responsible for nuthin'” infected everything from colleges of education to prestigious law schools.

    Around then, I had one acquaintance sentenced to several years hard time for manufacturing and selling machine guns without serial numbers. His defense? He was just a businessman filling a contract. Sound familiar?

    I’d say, now, as then, you make your choices and stop wetting the bed over what happens!
