THE FBI UNDERCOVER STING SQUAD!" -- probably does accurately capture the sentiment of some not insignificant portion of the city. [read post]

Missing Links (Willamette Weekly).  Here's the key reporting: But New York lawyer Martin Stolar says key aspects of Mohamud’s talks with the FBI may still be unknown.
