    The question is, without the intervention of the FBI to "deliver" the "explosive device," would this guy have ever been anything other than a gigantic blowhard with delusions of grandeur?

    Doubtful. I have a big problem with this being touted as a "victory in the war on terror" when he wasn't affiliated with al-Qaeda, never talked to al-Qaeda, never had opportunity to gather what he needed, had no access to any explosives, devices, or material that could potentially have been used in a terrorist attack. This is nothing but showboating by the administration for the PR benefit to the administration.
