ABSTRACT
The author probes into the homeland security campaign launched by the U.S. government against terrorism. Information on Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a young Muslim radical who was arrested for carrying out a terrorist plot in Portland, Oregon in 2010, is presented. The entrapment of Mohamud has been made possible due to the sting operations by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation. The author comments that such strategy could also have detrimental effects on the Muslim community who has been giving assistance to the government in fighting terrorism.
