Portland Attempted Bomber's Attorneys Try Entrapment Defense
May 09, 2011
Mohamed Mohamud's defense team claimed Friday that a man working for the U.S. government tried to provoke their client into violent acts more than a year before the FBI accused him of trying to bomb Portland's downtown Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
The defense claims a man identified only as "Bill Smith" and working on behalf of the government sent e-mails to Mohamud a year before the attempted bombing.
