An 18-year-old from Chicago was arrested during an undercover operation in which agents pretending to be extremists provided him with a phony car bomb that he intended to detonate outside a downtown bar, the U.S. District Attorney's office in Chicago said Saturday.

Adel Daoud of Chicago's Hillside suburb was arrested Friday night.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said in a news release Saturday the device was inert and the public was never at risk.

Daoud was charged in court Saturday with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting to damage and destroy a building with an explosive.

Federal prosecutors say the FBI began monitoring him after he posted material online about "violent jihad" and the killing of Americans.

they need to make catapulting the punishment for this idiots.  thankfully he was stupid and opened his mouth online.

Cases like this make me wonder if the kid would've ever gone beyond talking big if agents hadn't enabled and encouraged him, but I'm sure they're careful not to cross the line into entrapment. I"m just glad the internet wasn't around when I was 18, because I used to say a lot of stupid and incendiary things when I fancied myself a revolutionary.
