Sad that so many Americans don’t get this. Sounds like -and it’s completely possible the government totally botched this, as they do most things – but it sounds like the FBI was all over this guy for awhile, but couldn’t make anything stick. They followed him, recorded him, introduced undercover agents to him, a 10-month investigation.
