Dix Six defense: It’s all the government’s fault

The Fort Dix Six were in court this morning for a bail hearing. Courier Post blogged from the courthouse.

You won’t be shocked to hear that the lawyers for the Jersey Jihadist suspects are gearing up to argue entrapment:

Attorney Rocco Cipparone, who is representing defendant Mohamad Ibrahim Shnewer, whom he described as a “hardworking cab driver,” said he’ll look into “the role of paid informants and how aggressive they were in potentially prodding or moving things along.”

Troy Archie, Eljvir Duka’s lawyer, hinted at something conspiratorial this morning, suggesting there was “something wrong” with the fact that the CIs were able to infiltrate the plotters’ group within a month of the feds obtaining the jihad training DVD.

That didn’t take long, writes Dan Riehl.

Ace adds: “Given that these guys were already shooting guns and screaming jihadist slogans and planning attacks on Americans, I really don’t think the ‘entrapment’ argument is even close to applicable. They were already planning this; the undercover guy just got them to say so on tape.”

Just a reminder from the complaint about “hard-working cab driver” Shnewer’s plotting caught on tape:
