Spencer: FBI Doesn’t Entrap, Does It?

Larry Spencer: From (Meghann Cuniff's) story on Sept 7 “Fairfax has said he attached the pipe bomb to Cyndi Steele’s car in such a way that it wouldn’t explode, but his plea deal calls for him to acknowledge the device had the potential to explode.” Let's think about this. Why, if the charges are true, would he put a bomb under a car and do so in a way that it couldn't explode? Unless… He was making a deal with the FBI before this all started and offered to frame Steele in return for them dropping the firearm charges against him … Naw. That would mean the FBI is working some sort of entrapment game, and they just wouldn't do that. I'm sure they wouldn't. … Well, I would like to think that they don't do that anymore. But it they are, look at the bright side, nobody died this time!

Question: Are you surprised that Cyndi Steele is standing by her husband who allegedly was plotting to kill her?
