Mohamed Mohamud recieves guilty verdict

Mohamed Mohamud, who stood accused of trying to blow up a car bomb in Portland’s pioneer square during a popular Christmas tree lighting, was found guilty yesterday of attempting to detonate a weapon of mass destruction.

It is clear, and has been clear since the beginning of this trial, that Mohamed Mohamud pressed a button that he believed would kill hundreds of men, women, and children.

It has also become more and more clear that Mohamed Mohamud was manipulated and entrapped by the FBI. A number of sketchy things happened throughout the trial, in terms of procedure. And accounts of Mohamud before he met the FBI more resemble an stupid, angry teenager than a dangerous terrorist.

In no particular order:

Sentencing will occur in May. Mohamud is planning to appeal.
