Portland, Oregon: Somali Christmas tree bomber’s conviction upheld

I completely missed this news earlier in the month, so thanks to Creeping Sharia for posting it.

And, I should have seen it since I have been writing about Mohamed Mohamud recently.  See ten Islamic refugee terror attacks/foiled plots here.  I wrote that post because I was sick of hearing refugee industry advocates say there have been no US refugees involved in terror attacks. The fact that this one fell short of his goal to kill innocents seems to have escaped them. What! It doesn’t count if you don’t succeed!

From AP:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction of Mohamed Mohamud, the Somali American sentenced to 30 years in prison for plotting to bomb downtown Portland during the annual lighting of a Christmas tree.

The truck bomb was a fake given to him in 2010 by undercover FBI agents posing as terrorists.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Monday that a U.S. District Court judge properly rejected Mohamud’s claim of entrapment. The 50-page opinion states the government’s conduct was quite aggressive, but the sting fell short of a due process violation.

The court also rejected an assertion that the warrantless surveillance of his foreign communications violated his constitutional rights.
