It's the "credibility" of said informant...

Reader comment on item: Toronto: When an Islamist Informs on Islamist Terrorists

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Aug 9, 2006 at 14:57

I happened to watch a CBC tv interview with Mubin -- my impression? Bottom line -- he just doesn't sound believable...that's the problem. (I suspect the prosecutors may have problems -- he doesn't come across as sincere -- it's like listening to an Arafat state: "I am opposed to terrorism." wink, wink, nudge, nudge,. ha-ha. And as everyone knew Arafat could only relate to imagined Israeli "terrorist" acts. Ditto for Mubin. And *why* did it take TWO years?? (give me some troubled teens, some radical islam literature/videos/tapes/jihadi songs, etc., two years prep time, and of course a couple thousand dollars incentive from CSIS -- and guess what? you take the gang out to some remote local to do a paint-ball game -- and bingo -- it's terrorism...

Anyway, I guess we'll all just have to wait for the court trial...(I hear several are already out on bail.) (I wouldn't hold my breath for a successful prosecution... that's just my gut suspicion.)
